A few veterinary students from Mississippi State University have started a group called Homeward Bound—they focus on placing older animals, and those with illnesses that often make them less adoptable. They’ve already found homes for several of our harder to place dogs, including a few that the students were treating for heartworm. We are so thankful to Homeward Bound, as they are making all the difference in the world to so many animals!
Doll received several complaints about conditions at the Winona Pound; they’ve had problems for years that she’s been investigating. On this trip, Doll found sick dogs left untreated, animals with no water and overall conditions of filth. Doll is now working with an Animal Control Officer to get the pound up to acceptable standards, and will check back in a couple of weeks for a progress report.
