Animal control in Roswell, NM picked up a stolen, microchipped dog whose owner was looking for her but failed to contact the owner. Instead, AC put the dog on the kill list. The owner, who lives 200 miles away, was able to redeem her pet thanks to rescuers who posted the dog’s photo on Facebook. (Thank you Clarice for the link.)
The manager of the Hawkins Co Humane Society in TN is seeking forfeiture of 16 dogs and 2 birds after staff “rescued” them from their home. The owners were critically injured in a car accident and have been hospitalized. Now their animals are being stolen. (Thanks Adrianne.)
The irresponsible public wanted to help a lost, starving dog in the Washington mountains but had to think outside the box when hot dog lures failed. They were successful and are now trying to find the dog’s owner. (Thanks Mary.)
