The Dog Liberator™

The Dog Liberator rescues abandoned dogs throughout the Southeast. Based in Central Florida, this non-profit organization fosters all of their dogs in a home environment. Founded in 2009, all dogs are fully vetted, spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The Dog Liberator focuses in rescuing the herding breed, which consists of Border Collies, Shepherds, Sheepdogs, Aussies, Collies, and Deaf/Blind Dogs.

You may or may not be aware that many awesome dogs were sent to us by Dee Sullins, Director of the Hale County Shelter, for example, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, blue-eyed Natalie, Sir Winslow and recently Holly’s White Fluffy Puppies. I had the pleasure of visiting this state-of-the art shelter. Because I’ve had a first-hand look at shelters and pounds throughout the U.S. and Canada, seeing this shelter for myself was just as wonderful as it was depressing – depressing because I wish all shelters were like this one. The open air design and sunlight that the shelter provides ensures the animals’ health. While I was there, volunteers were floating around not only taking care of the animals, but keeping it clean. More information about the shelter’s design can be found on Dee Sullin’s blog.

While originally I thought that my tour of the shelter would be the highlight of my trip, I was amazed with the landscape, and the animals, but the smell of pine, combined with the armona of the earth was to die for! I met some amazing and warm people, and felt at home.

The day I left, I got to count nine little peeps that had just hatched, but the day after I left, I was bummed to learn that I had missed out on watching a donkey being born. Wouldn’t that have been cool!!!

While I was there, I learned that this shelter has the opportunity to utilize a fantastic state-of-the-art transport vehicle. Plans are in the works to create an animal transport service that I’m sure many shelters throughout the Southeast would utilize to save and transport the animals to receiving rescues.

It was a great vacation!
