Until the next time we meet …

BUT FIRST: STOP THE PRESSES!

My final blog entry was all written (see below), but then I heard from Julie Rathbun, the UAN volunteer at the Mississippi deployment who arranged with HSUS for the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) in her home city of Mobile, Alabama to take custody of two expectant mothers. Julie then drove both dogs to Mobile.

A successful rescue, just about over

Submitted by EARS volunteer Marcia Goodman of Cromwell, Connecticut

Well, I’m back home in Connecticut, and the deployment is just about over. Tomorrow I’ll do a final wrap-up blog entry. Today I’ll focus on the two people I interviewed at the very end of my time in Mississippi: Janet Roush of Nebraska, and Janell Matthies, on staff with UAN as its Emergency Services Manager

Sad news with good news to follow

Submitted by EARS volunteer Marcia Goodman of Cromwell, Connecticut

I’m starting this on Monday, March 15, and I must start off with some very sad news. You may remember the two expectant mothers EARS volunteer Julie Rathbun took to Mobile, Alabama after arranging special homes for them. She took Mama Blondie to a veterinarian who she says is cutting edge and would give that sweet girl the best care she could receive. Here is an email I received from Julie about Mama Blondie on Sunday night:

Meet Stevie …

EARS volunteer Marcia Goodman has been doing a great job keeping the outside world informed about the 180 dogs rescued from Raven's Hope Animal Sanctuary in Kemper County, Mississippi. But she did take some time away from her writing and photography to chill out with one of the neediest dogs.

Progress at the emergency shelter

Submitted by EARS volunteer Marcia Goodman of Cromwell, Connecticut

I haven’t previously reported on one piece of excellent news for the dogs seized from Raven's Hope Animal Sanctuary here in Kemper County, Mississippi. The owner agreed not to contest the seizure except for three dogs she identified. For readers of this blog who volunteer with EARS, you know that if she had contested the seizure and forced the matter to wind its way through the courts, these dogs could have been on hold in shelters for a very long time.
