Suffering Animals Rescued In Coffee County

animal rescue 4Nearly 100 small to medium dogs and several cats, suffering and dying in cages rusted shut and covered with cobwebs, some matted to the wire and unable to move were rescued in Coffee County from a home in the Fountain Grove community early Sunday morning.
Local authorities found they were living in “extremely neglectful conditions.” The dogs, which were a variety of breeds including Golden Retrievers, Yorkshire Terriers and Border Collies, were found very thin and living in complete darkness.
The remains of 10 other dogs, wrapped in sheets were found on the property.
The Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) assisted the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office in taking the 90 adult dogs and puppies and seven cats, which were surrendered by the property owner. animal rescue 3
The Animal Rescue Corps is calling this rescue, Operation Midnight Run, because after receiving a call late Saturday night from Coffee County authorities, they drove all night, to reach the animals in less than 12 hours. The team worked throughout the day on Sunday to get the animals the medical and other care they needed.
