UPDATE, added August 21, 2013: All 4 pets have foster care lined up. Thank you to everyone who shared.
Reader Melissa and her family are heading for a homeless shelter. She is hoping to find immediate foster homes for her 4 pets as the shelter will not allow them. She posted her story on Facebook and has given me permission to post her contact info here. If you can offer any assistance, please call Melissa at (225)567-5057 or e-mail her. If you can’t help out yourself, please share with your animal loving friends so we can find care for these 4 pets. Melissa wants to stress that her hope is to be in a position to reclaim all 4 pets as soon as possible as they are beloved family members.
The following photos and captions are all taken from Facebook.
I am keeping a good thought for you Melissa, and for your entire (human and pet) family.
