CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org (yahoo.com)
This is Morehead, KY, rural eastern KY
Where to even begin? Jan, Sue and myself are in deep and overwhelmed. We cannot keep up. In the past few days I forget how many puppies have been dumped on roadways or left in boxes at the pound. It has never been this bad. Dogs are pouring in like crazy. We have no space left. Jan is at her wits end, I can't hold a thought or keep up with just the emails, Sue is scrambling like a madwoman trying to keep up with STAR and university band. We are dicussing the end of STAR. 3 tired women cannot keep it up at this pace. I don't even know if the website is fully UTD.
We had 8 parvo pups at the pound so they went to the vet and so far 3 have died and the rest are still being treated and the bill is climbing very quickly. Because the pound has to empty now due to parvo, they cannot intake any dogs so the dogs are getting dumped on the roadways instead. Instead of wating until the pound can empty and reopen, they choose to dump the poor dogs. The pound has to shut down to sanitize every square inch. The dogs at the pound now are safe from parvo. They have been vaccinated long enough. But they still have to move out. Add to the problem that our dog warden, Jimmy, who is an essential part of our team, is out now due to shoulder surgery.
We have dogs in boarding at Tin Woof Inn and at our 2 foster homes:
Need rescues for these dogs right away:

STAR is drowning in vet bills, transport costs, boarding costs and dogs. To help with STAR which is a 501c3 you can mail checks made out to STAR to STAR c/o Julia Sharp, 164 East Main Street, Morehead, KY 40351 or paypal to email@example.com (roadrunner.com) or use the ChipIn's on the home page of the site. www.petfinder.com/shelters/KY251.html
Outside of STAR I have 2 lovely young beagles that were almost hit by cars and picked up. They are spayed, UTD, HW neg, dewormed, frontlined and need a place to go and I desperately need donations to cover their vet bill. Belle, the younger of the 2 had a bad bout of gastroenteritis that mimiced parvo but the parvo test was neg. She has finished her meds and is doing great. We had $150 for them and still owe $529. You can call the Morehead Vet Clinic at 606-780-7387 or mail checks to The Morehead Vet Clinic, 103 Bartlett Drive, Morehead, KY 40351 or paypal to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (yahoo.com) to help the beags. Pics of them can be seen here
We need help. We need it fast. Before the 3 of us wind up being blubbering piles of jelly. Prayers and good thoughts are most welcome too. We need every bit of help we can get at this point.
