Several dogs in Dooly County are in need of a new
home. Volunteers have just a few days
before they have to move them from their current location.
16 dogs need a new place to call home. They're currently
living in a building on Georgia Highway 27 in Vienna. Volunteers say they
have until Wednesday to find somewhere for the canines to go.
"It's been on face book and people are really trying to help.
We have rescue groups. We have people that have taken some since all this
started," said Glenda Cannon.
Volunteers say this building was supposed to be a shelter for the
dogs, but it couldn't be opened. Now they want someone to adopt the dogs before
they're taken away by the state.
"We also have possibility that the Flint Humane Society of
Vienna would take them. But again we need transport help," said Glenda Cannon.
Every dog has been vaccinated, spayed or neutered. They just need
someone who'll take care of them.
"All they need is just tender loving care. Food and water on
a regular basis and walked. They don't get walked on a regular basis. So we
just need help," said Glenda Cannon.
Most of the dogs were abandoned and abused. Some came from the pound. Volunteer Glenda
Cannon says it was easy for her to get attached.
"Two that are at my house for extra care, but I've been
trying to adopt ever since I saw this. And I have 4 or 5 that's been
adopted," said Glenda Cannon.
Cannon says there's no cost to take one of these dogs home to give
them a new start.
