A New Beginning
We've seen our fair share of animal hoarding cases here in North Central Florida, but we haven't cornered the market on the problem. More than 120 dogs were removed from a volunteer animal rescue in Arkansas late last month. Dogs were crammed into barns with fleas and feces and even suffered from gunshot wounds.
Today marks the start of a new life for these dogs. They traveled fourteen hours in a van from Arkansas home to North Central Florida. We captured the timid animals as they were brought out their kennels and introduced to their temporary home.
Best friends Animal rescue chose Gilchrist County Animal Shelter for its small space, saying the smaller,the better. Aldo Wilson and Robin Politowicz from Best Friends Rescue made the drive together. Six dogs were dropped off at the shelter: Rockstar, Muffin, Zena, Sammy, Jewl, and Ariel are all up for adoption.
If you are interested in adoption you can contact the Gilchrist County Animal Shelter and ask for Tanya Rippy at 352-463-4084.
