75 DOGS, 24 CATS, 21 HORSES AND 8 DONKEYS RESCUED FROM AN ABUSIVE SITUATION IN MISSISSIPPI BEGIN A NEW LIFE WITH TRANSPORTS TO PLACEMENT PARTNERS AROUND THE U.S.

Tunica, MS – Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) is pleased to announce that the animals rescued from a Mississippi breeding operation on July 15th have started moving out of the ARC emergency shelter to ARC’s placement partners around the U.S., the next step in their journey to a new life. A large group is scheduled to leave the ARC emergency shelter bound for groups in Illinois between 6:00 am and 10:00 am today. ARC’s shelter and foster-based rescue partners in Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Illinois and Maryland, will be finding permanent loving homes for all of them. ARC has been caring for the rescued dogs and cats at an emergency shelter they set up since their rescue, named Operation Mississippi Blues, while the equine have been cared for in two sanctuaries in Tennessee. In addition to the animals rescued in Operation Mississippi Blues, ARC will transfer to its placement partners 20 animals from the Union County Animal Control and 4 puppies found in a box and brought to the ARC emergency shelter.

“Without progressive partners like these who understand the power of networking together, we couldn’t do what we do,” said Animal Rescue Corps President Scotlund Haisley. “These partners are as critical to these operations as the boots on the ground getting the animals out of harm’s way.”

ARC’s network of placement partners will be continuing the physical and emotional rehabilitation of the animals and ultimately matching them with families looking to adopt. The list of U.S. placement partners includes: In Kentucky, the Lexington Humane Society; In Tennessee, Goofy Foot Dog Rescue, Blues City Animal Rescue, Memphis Area Golden Retriever Rescue, Middle Tennessee Golden RetrieverAdopt a Golden Knoxville, Weimaraner Rescue of the SouthRedemption Road Rescue, Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary; In Maryland, the Humane Society of Calvert County, Mutts Matter Rescue and Dogs XL Rescue; In Illinois, South Suburban Humane Society, Second City Canine Rescue, Hinsdale Humane Society, In Wisconsin, Northwoods Humane Society.

“Anyone wishing to foster or adopt should contact ARC’s partner organizations directly and follow their screening process,” said ARC Outreach Director Karla Goodson, who is tasked with placing all of the animals ARC rescues. “Often the animals we rescue may not be available for adoption immediately, we like to encourage people to consider all the animals that have been waiting for a home when looking for their perfect match.”

The rescue began when ARC received a call for assistance from the Union County Sheriff’s Department after receiving a report from a local veterinarian. An investigation of the property revealed several cruelty code violations. ARC safely removed all of the animals from the property and transported them to an emergency shelter set up for this rescue in Tunica, MS about 40 minutes south of Memphis, TN. Each animal has received a thorough veterinary exam, appropriate vaccinations, and any necessary medical treatments; as well as daily care, exercise and socialization.

Animal Rescue Corps performed Operation Mississippi Blues in conjunction with the Union County Sheriff’s Department, Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Homeward Bound. Redemption Road Rescue and Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary of Tennessee provided equine care and transport. The Tunica Humane Society provided logistical, transport, and volunteer support. A grant from the Mental Insight Foundation provided critical funds to this operation.

    We have been trying to find a weimaraner puppy.
    Our last one died a few years ago. My mother saw
    A spot on a news station and some weimaraner puppies from a puppy mill. I was just wondering
    How I can get one. Please email me back soon. Thanks, lee

    I would be interested in knowing about where they land in Illinois, as that is my home state.

    Thank you,

    Sheri Klaich

    I live in Rhinelander, WI 54501, where is the closest facility that I can adopt a male pup? I can get a reference from my vet and Furry Paws Rescue where we have adopted our other 2 dogs (Waldo & Bogart). They are getting up there in years and it is probably time to add a new family member. Sincerely, Christi & Richard Foster 715-369-2056

      Christi – we have a wonderful facility in Hayward, WI – Northwoods Humane Society about 2 hours west of you. Website – http://www.northwoodshumanesociety.org/ you can link through there and see pets currently available for adoption. We also have a Facebook page – Northwoods Humane Society – Sawyer County where they feature cats and dogs.

    In Wisconsin, the Northwoods Humane Society is mentioned above. Not sure if they got pups or not but a good place to take a look. :)

  11. Ken Johnson says:

    We got “Duke”, a lab/weimaraner mix, on September 12, from this rescue, I believe (south suburban humane society of Chicago heights, Illinois). We, and those who meet Duke can’t believe how lucky WE are. He is vital, a thriving boy. But no longer a little boy. 12 pounds is now 56 and counting!
