16 Years and Counting

August marks the 16th year since In Defense of Animals' Mid-South Office, better known as Project Hope, came to be. On August 1, 1993 Doll officially opened the Sanctuary.

Technically, Doll had already been in Mississippi for several months investigating and working to shut down several dog-nappers who had been stealing people's dogs off the street and selling them to research labs. Jerry Vance was one of the key players in this pet-theft ring and Doll eventually put him out of business.

Below are three news clips from WABG-TV in Greenville, MS that detail the case.



In the 16 years since Doll arrived in Mississippi, she's helped better the lives of thousands of animals. Of course, she couldn't do it without her network of other animal caretakers, whistle-blowers, sympathetic judges, prosecutors, sheriffs and other law enforcement.

I've worked with Doll on several occasions and I can honestly say that I have never met a harder working, more dedicated, compassionate and kinder person. Thanks, Doll, for all your hard work over the past 16+ years.

Please take a moment to send Doll an e-mail congratulating her on her 16 years of service to the animals of Mississippi.

Doll, you are the most amazingly giving, unselfish, patient,loving woman that exists. i always thought i was too over sensitive, when it came to my extreme heart ache that i feel when i hear of animal being mistreated, that i now know, is what all decent caring human beings should feel, when animal neglect is put in our faces. if the world could be filled of such devoted, compassionate souls, i could say i am proud to live on this earth, as of 2009. but, there are not enough of you, thank you for all the animal hearts you have made feel joy once again.
