Love at first sight at the temporary shelter

In between feeding, watering, cleaning and watering, the UAN volunteers at the temporary shelter in Dothan, Alabama still have time to fall in love -- with the rescued dogs and cats under their care, that is!

UAN Emergency Services Manager Janell Matthies talked to a few volunteers about the animals who have touched their hearts this week.

Cute puppy pics from the temporary shelter

We just received some photos from Dothan, Alabama, where UAN volunteers are caring for 198 dogs and 31 cats rescued from an overrun private animal shelter on February 28. The owner of the shelter relinquished custody of the animals to the local sheriff's department, and they will be transferred to rescue groups and shelters for adoption in the coming days. In the meantime, UAN's volunteers are making sure the animals are comfortable and content in their temporary digs at the local fairgrounds.

Thanks to EARS volunteer Tereza Marks for these photos!

Rescued animals are "bursting with personality"

It’s been a long couple of days in Alabama for the UAN volunteers tending to 198 dogs and 31 cats rescued from Dirty Sally’s Pet Pals on Monday. Many of the dogs were found chained to trees around the property and the cats were living in a dirty pen exposed to the elements. Because very little food was available, some dogs were eating leaves, acorns and even rocks.

When UAN is busy, animals are happy

A popular adage says, "When it rains it pours," and it is certainly raining cats and dogs for United Animal Nations (UAN). But when UAN is busy, that means neglected animals are on their way to a better life.
