Woman saves dogs, with community support

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Fifty five rescued dogs now have a new home, and it's all thanks to your donations. We first brought you the story in February. 

Kim Terrell and her husband were housing 55 dogs at their Lee County home, and served as the Terrell County Human Society. 

After losing a rezoning battle with the county, they were forced to move the dogs elsewhere in very little time. 

After finding a generous landowner, and raising close to $15,000, they were able to move the dogs to a piece of land in Dougherty County.

Terrell said she couldn't have done it without the support from the community. 

"We have just been very very blessed by the people," said Terrell. "Their prayers, their donations, and anything they could do for us. Even uplifting words, has gotten us through this horrible event and is moving us forward."

Unfortunately, the dogs can't stay there forever, but there is more good news. 

Terrell said she is working on purchasing a piece of land in Terrell County to build a permanent location for the dogs. 

She hopes to open a safe haven, no kill shelter for all surrounding counties.
