In Chester, South Carolina, the shelter is full. And who is to blame? Perhaps we should call upon irresponsible dog owners; those who do not have their pets neutered and spayed, those who abandon their loyal friends at the end of a field or on a country road, and those who dump their dogs at shelters as if there will be a line at the door to adopt an ailing pet or one who has just had the privilege of growing old.
And now there’s more sadness for the future of 15 adoptable dogs. Due to the declining health of the owner of Crooked Creek Animal Rescue, whose doors are closing, these dogs are scheduled to be transferred to the already overcrowded Chester County Animal Shelter on Friday, July 29 if not adopted or rescued. Euthanasia dates have been scheduled much to everyone’s sadness, and so the plight of these animals become even more tragic.
Click here to meet all of the wonderful dogs just waiting for a chance to become a part of a family again. Just click on their photo for a brief description. A volunteer has stepped forward and offered to pay any fees to an approved rescue organization who can help with any of these dogs.
On the Facebook page for the Chester County Animal Shelter, the organization has sent out a plea for help:
“… we are currently in the middle of a PTS dated August 5th. We will be receiving 16 dogs from this rescue on Friday July 29th. We do not have the space for these dogs. All 16 are fully vetted and microchipped. One still needs heart worm treatment, but we do have sponsorship.
Any dog pulled opens a kennel. We have attached all three albums. If there is any interest in these dogs please contact us ASAP. Our phone number is 803. 385. 6341 and our email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can not pull, fosters would be extremely helpful.”

Please share to help as the shelter does not have the space necessary to house these dogs as well ones already here. Sharing saves lives, and we are all these dogs have in this world.
