Rescued Puppies and Dogs in Need of Good Homes
PALM HARBOR - Nearly three dozen puppies and six dogs will be soon be looking for new homes in Pinellas County. The Suncoast Animal League of Palm Harbor received an emergency plea for help on Tuesday from a Georgia based animal rescue organization.
Angel Dog Rescue of Georgetown, GA has been overwhelmed by the combined effects of the economic downturn and harsh winter weather on their facilities. The not-for-profit dog rescue group has seen increase in the number of dogs surrendered to the organization due to their owner's financial hardships, along with fewer adoptions overall. The unusually wet winter weather has resulted in flooding damage to many of their kennels. Angel's staff and volunteers are working around the clock to place their animals in regional shelters.
In response, the Suncoast Animal League dispatched an animal rescue team to lend immediate assistance. Staff and volunteers from the League drove to Georgetown Tuesday evening and returned Wednesday with the puppies and dogs that need new homes at the Suncoast Animal League shelter in Palm Harbor.
The puppies and dogs will need to undergo medical and temperament evaluations before they are ready for adoption.
You can help the League by making a tax deductible monetary donation. Donors are encouraged to make a contribution online at www.suncoastanimalleague.org. For more information call 727-786-1330.
