Hale County Humane Society

One of Five:
I’m sure you are aware of the tornado that ripped through Tuscaloosa last week. This little dog and five of his buddies survived the tornado that tore through Hale County, Alabama. Even though they were tied to trees. Sadly, their owners perished. Upon finding the wreckage, rescuers untied the dogs. This little man immediately lead them to his deceased owner who had been carried a mile away from his demolished home. We have pulled numerous dogs from Hale County Humane Society in the past. Dee Sullins is their director. They’ve been hit hard and now the burden is even greater as they number of animals in need of care has increased. With an annual budget of only $5,000, they need all the help they can get. If you would like to help, Hale County Humane Society will be taking donations at the Shelter. P.O. Box 476 Greensboro Al. 36744.  They also have a Pay pal account on Petfinder. Location is 36744.

05/03/11 Update: I would like to deeply thank everyones generousity and kindness in this crazy time. I have seen some things that have happened to some of our animals that is truly amazing as well as terrifying. On our very limited budget there is very little possibility that we would be able to continue to help these animals without the donations and support that we are receiving from everyone. Special thanks to The DogLiberator and all of there followers. It’s incredible what an amazing difference that a determined group of people can make. Thank you all ! ~ Dee Sullins

05/04/11 Update: These are two of the dogs found in Hale County whose owners were killed and their home literally blown away. Some of the six found were tied up and all miraculously survived.

Hunting Dogs Reunited
Mr. Gerald Brown of Hale County, Alabama, loved nothing better than to hear his dogs “jump” a rabbit.  His dogs were his love and his prized possessions. Four days after a tornado swept away Mr. Brown, his wife Cora and their home, Hale County Humane Society volunteers found his dogs patiently waiting at the home site; waiting for their master who would never return to give them supper or take them on an evening run.
These pups now wait patiently at the Hale County Animal Shelter for their new master and a chance to run through the woods once again.  Contact Dee Sullins, Shelter Director, at 334-624-8120 for adoption information.

 

Charlie
With a broken shoulder, it took “Charlie” three days to get back home to Hale County Road 29 from the woods where the tornado had tossed him. His little pen was gone, his master’s house was gone; he was scared, hurting and hungry, but safe at last.  Charlie’s owner had lost many possessions, but he still had Charlie! He scooped the pup up in his arms and headed to the veterinarian where Charlie underwent surgery, free of charge. Thanks to your donations, a fund at the clinic has been set up to treat the companion animals injured in the storms and relieves at least one financial burden from their owners. Your donations are important. They are needed now, in the aftermath, more than ever. So please continue to “Chip In” for their care. – Betsy Rogers

  1. One of Prospect’s FB Fans let us know about this effort. We will do what we can to spread the word about the special need. Send us an e-mail if you can think of any other way we could possibly help.

    Money contributions are the most efficient means of help now, would any supplies be useful in the coming weeks and months? Is there anything “on site” volunteers could help with?
