An outpouring of support followed the publication of one dog's sheer terror after being surrendered to the Carroll County Animal Shelter in Carrollton, Ky. Thanks to the efforts of networking individuals, the dog, named "Russell," has since been rescued.
Unfortunately, the other six dogs who were surrendered to the animal control facility by the same individual are still in grave danger.
Tammie Crawford, the director of animal support for the facility, is begging for help for the six dogs who were turned over to the facility with Russell. Though Russell exhibited the most terror, the other dogs are frightened as well.
Crawford wrote the following about a one-year-old dog named Auburn:
Meet poor Auburn, she is one of 7 that one owner surrendered. She has milk but not sure where her pups are. We are currently trying to find out. She is approx 1 yr old. Very scared.
And the following information was shared about two more dogs, Crimson and Caramell:
Crimson and Caramell, 2 more of the 7 that were surrendered. Very scared little girls. All 7 are between 1-1.5 yrs old and their weights are approx 20-25 lbs.
Another dog named "Ruby," is also in need:
Ruby is another of the 7 that were surrendered. She is very timid and scared. Again approx 1-1.5 yrs old, weighs approx 20-25 lbs.
Finally, the last two - please note, the reference to Russell was made prior to him being rescued:
Russell and Keegan the only 2 males out of the 7 surrendered by 1 person. Ages between 1-1.5 yrs old and weigh around 20-25 lbs.
These dogs are all located at a facility which is in a rural area, with little foot traffic. As such, the facility has a low adoption rate and all of the dogs are in grave danger. Anyone with questions or who can possibly help these at risk dogs, is asked to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or, reach out to a volunteer at 502-732-6040, if no one answers please leave a message with the name of the dog you are interested in and your phone number.
