Earlier this week, the staff from Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans drove to the northern part of Mississippi to rescue eight dogs that had been taken in by the Cleveland-Bolivar County Animal Shelter. The seven hound dogs and one Labrador retriever had been living in deplorable conditions.
According to the Villalobos Rescue Center’s social media posts, the dogs had not only been suffering physically, but their mental and emotional state had taken its toll. Most were completely shut down, not leashed trained and some almost feral reactive to the touch.
The dogs are terrified of people, and even the puppies will snap at whomever reaches out to touch them. When approached, the Labrador retriever urinated on himself when one of the volunteers came to close to him.
The dogs are expected to be with the non profit animal rescue organization for an extended period of time.
A sponsorship program is being organized for the benefit of these dogs who we are sure, with the expertise of the Villalobos Rescue Center – Life 4 Paws, Inc. will one day be amazing pets and companions.
