WV SHELTER CLOSING, NO FUNDING, NO HELP...113 DOGS AND 22 CATS. ONE PERSON WITH A BROKEN ANKLE TAKING CARE OF ALL

CONTACT: PATRICIA Bragg (msn.com)

Subject: Need Placement Help
Date: Mon, 8 Feb 2010 08:52:22 -0500

After two years of no volunteers, no funding, dumb ass government officials both local and state and just sheer exhaustion of the massive number of strays and drop offs I am admitting defeat and closing the only no kill shelter in the area.

It is with the deepest regrets that I can not make this work for the animals and heaviness of heart that I send this email asking (begging) for help placing my dogs. I am overcrowded, overworked and working with a handicap of a cast right now. I am the only feeding, watering cleaning person who takes care of 113 dogs and 22 cats and I can not keep doing this. What used to take 6 hours per day to complete now takes me 8 because of the broken ankle. I have a water leak that I can not afford to have fixed so I am carrying 36 water jugs to the shelter every day to water the dogs and cats and also having t o carry coal and wood to heat the building.

I have worked with all the disadvantages that have been thrown at me for over 2 years now but I am now financially, emotionally, physically and mentally drained and I cannot just leave these dogs to starve in the building but right now I can not afford to feed them and care for them. I am in debt big time where I have borrowed money for food and vet bills and I have to acknowledge my limititations. My personal bills are all overdue and I am raising 3 granddaughters that have suffered the consequencs of pouring every available minute and dollar into this rescue that seems to always demand more than I have.

If I turn them over to the local pounds they will be euthanized and in Logan county they still use the gas chamber. I can not bear to think of them being put down and I will do what I can to keep them from going to the pounds for as long as I can but it would be more humane to put them down than to let them starve.

I have contacted many of the organizations that are supposed to be serious about helping animals, AHS, HSUS, PETA etc who has many suggestions about raising money and gives advice on spay and neuter but if you work rescue you understand that does not feed or help the immediate need.

If you have any contacts that can help me move these dogs to safety where they do not have to be euthanized please contact me I know I can only hold out a few more days and desperately need to get these guys somewhere safe.

Please contact any rescues or avenues of placement you may have and help me get these dogs moved.
