Georgians step up to save animals at Paulding county shelter

May 17, 4:34 PMAtlanta Animal Welfare ExaminerValerie Hayes

Last week, the Paulding County Animal Shelter issued a plea for help from the animal-loving public.  The response they got has been almost overwhelming. 
Says kennel manager Tracy Thompson:  "We topped 200 adoptions. I have not got an actual count because we were so busy that I have not finished all the paperwork ... Best Friends has offered to take nursing momma cats, so we are doing so good. I don’t even know what to feel, to walk through an empty kennel is so strange."   The work of adopting out every animal in the shelter by the May 28th deadline is not done yet, though.  "We do still have 5-7 dogs, 10 cats and a handful of adoptable kittens."

Due to the large number of Yahoo Groups I belong to and the amount of mail generated on these groups, it is impossible for me to keep up with all of the mail. I'd hate to miss your offer to help, so please email me directly at the email below if you are able to assist. DO NOT respond to the list or I may never see your offer to help!
If you would like to volunteer only as BACKUP if that leg does not fill please indicate clearly on the email that you are volunteering only for BACKUP.  We also appreciate an offer for BACKUP if a leg is filled should an emergency occur.
