***Permission to cross-post granted***
BRAT West Regional Coordinator, Liz Newton, spoke this evening with long-time basenji rescue person, Janine Peters, of Dry Prong, LA. Many of you know Janine from her work as the past BCOA rescue co-chair.
Janine reports that she has been working with her All Breed rescue group about 20 hours/day since Monday to rescue and ship dogs to safe areas.
People are bringing dogs to her group in great numbers to be rehomed and her group is limited in that they cannot accept more than they have crates in which to ship them to other locations.
She said a man with a boat just dropped off 10 he had rescued from the water and roof tops. Owners, who are permanently displaced, are bringing their pets in and saying good-bye. Janine just sent a truck load of dogs to CA as they were talking.
Janine’s group needs resources: money, crates, and food primarily. BRAT will be sending money and crates to Janine and welcomes the assistance of all basenji people in this project.
