In NC, the Gaston Co AC supervisor says he’ll do “whatever it takes” to get pets out alive. But it was a member of the so-called irresponsible public who recently sought out a major TV station’s help to promote the 60 pets on the kill list.

Georgia Department of Agriculture ordered 87 cats quarantined at the DeKalb Co pound and 48 dogs quarantined at Cobb Co due to disease.
Police in Henrico Co, VA visited the home of a murdered 33 year old man to inform family members of his death. While there, they shot the family’s dog to death.

File under: ACO doing good: An ACO in Anderson, SC found a stray Shih Tzu in a ravine nursing an orphaned kitten. BuzzFeed has the adorable photos. I love that the kitten looks very much like the surrogate mama.
