Lebanon, TN – Dogs, cats, rats and mice rescued during five different operations in Tennessee are leaving the Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) temporary shelter in Lebanon, where they have been receiving care for the last week, and are on their way to approved placement partners in Tennessee, Kentucky, Maryland, Florida, Virginia, New Jersey and Illinois. ARC’s partners will continue medical treatments and behavioral rehabilitation and, when the animals are ready, they will be adopted into loving homes.

“This is the day we all look forward to,” said ARC President Scotlund Haisley. “Our rescue and shelter partners will now take over and give these survivors a place to recover and heal from the abuse and neglect they have suffered for so long.”

The list of Tennessee area placement partners includes: Compassion in Action Tennessee; Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock SanctuaryGoofy Foot Dog Rescue; ALIVE Rescue Memphis; AGAPE Animal Rescue and Woof River Animal Rescue. Dogs will also be headed to Kentucky Humane Society in Louisville, KY; Mutts Matter Rescue and Dogs XL Rescue in Maryland; Second City Canine Rescue, Alive Rescue Chicago, One Tail at a Time, Hinsdale Humane Society, and South Suburban Humane Society in Illinois; Homeward Trails in Virginia; and Tri-County Animal Rescue in Florida.  United Yorkie Rescue, operating nationally, is also a placement partner.

“Anyone wishing to adopt or foster one of these dogs should contact these organizations directly and follow their adoption and foster screening process,” said ARC Outreach Director Karla Goodson. “There are also many other animals – dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, horses, even reptiles – available through our partners and other great rescues and shelters around the country, so anyone looking to add a member to their family is sure to find the perfect match and save a life.”

Operation Resolution Pt. One

Operation Resolution Part One

Last week, January 6 through 9, ARC rescued over 130 animals of a variety of breeds and species in five rescues, dubbed Operation Resolution Parts 1-5, in five counties across Tennessee. Additionally ARC rescued a potbelly pig from deplorable conditions in conjunction with our partner, Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary, and is providing necessary medical treatment and assisting with placement for nearly 20 dogs and cats to relieve ARC’s over-burdened animal control partners.

In Operation Resolution 1, on January 6, ARC rescued 21 abandoned dogs from a trash-strewn property in Clay County, where the dogs had been fending for themselves for weeks. Three deceased dogs were also discovered on the property and preliminary exams by ARC’s veterinarian point to death by exposure and starvation. Authorities were able to locate the property owner, who surrendered all the dogs to ARC.

Operation Resolution 2 took place on January 7 when ARC rescued 17 dogs from a dilapidated, abandoned home in a residential neighborhood in Bolivar, TN. ARC then assisted Hardeman County Animal Control with an investigation of a report of animal cruelty in Hardeman County of dogs being disposed of in tire fire. The body of one dog who had been deceased less than 48 hours was found and sent to a lab in Nashville for necropsy. Findings suggest that severe parasitic infestation, resulting anemia, and starvation may have contributed to the dog’s death. Authorities are investigating and seeking the owner of that dog.

Later that same day, on Operation Resolution 3, ARC, Hardin County Animal Control, and the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office acted on a warrant and found more than 40 animals, including dogs, a cat, and pet mice and rats, living in a single wide trailer in Counce, TN, with some of the highest ammonia levels encountered in the five years ARC has been working in Tennessee. All of the animals were surrendered by the property owner to ARC.

On January 8, ARC worked with authorities to secure the surrender of the potbellied pig found living in horrendous conditions in Benton County and then performed Operation Resolution 4 in Henderson County, with the surrender of 31 dogs from a man who had been living in the woods of Natchez Trace State Park for the past 16 years. While on scene of that rescue, ARC received a call from authorities three hours away in Macon County who had discovered 21 starving dogs abandoned in an old county store after receiving a call from the property owner who was there serving an eviction notice. Reportedly the property tenant and dogs’ owner had been in hospice and the dogs had been without care for weeks. ARC raced across the state to perform Operation Resolution 5.
