We need help with the hounds!
The Mason County Animal Shelter in Point Pleasant, WV is overflowing with
big dogs. All of the larger breed animals are in extreme danger of being
gassed to death just because there are so many of them. The county has
ordered the shelter director to decrease the shelter population, and she may
not have any choice if dogs aren't moved out immediately.
Several of these endangered dogs are beautiful, sweet hounds, hound mixes,
and beagle mixes. A partial list includes:
Honey and her two sisters were abandoned in the night drop box. These black
and tan coonhounds are very well behaved and loving -- sweet dogs who
deserve more out of life than they've gotten to date. Two more Walker
Hounds were surrendered today.
Lisa is a very pretty girl, and quite unique -- with a yellow lab's coat and
a bassett hound's body. She's only a year old and VERY sweet, but a little
Goofy is a good-looking guy, a young male weimaraner/coonhound mix, who was
picked up as a stray.
Nickie - young female Weimaraner/coonhound mix
Chuck is listed as a Keeshond mix. While he has Keeshond markings, he is
small in size, and might be mixed with one of the smaller terrier breeds.
Whatever he is, he is a darling little boy who is very, very sweet.
Tippey is one of the sweetest little beagle girls ever! This pretty girl is
only eight months old, and very shy.
Cindy is a really unique combination of beagle and bassett -- the best of
two very good breeds. She has a beagle face and a bassett's body, a really
nice looking girl.
Agnes - young female American Eskimo/beagle mix - a unique combination.
The County has forced the shelter to start gassing the animals. Large mixed
breeds and hounds are at very high risk to go next. If you can help, please
email Katie at katie.walter at comcast.net or Missy at my5furkids at yahoo.com.
For most efficient response, please include your name, address, phone number
and email address along with the name of your rescue, any web site URL AND
the name, address and phone number of the vet you use to alter and treat
animals in your rescue.
