Re: Chatsworth GA: Last Day Today for 11 Month-Old

I just saw this girl on a myspace bulletin (why do I keep looking at those?!?) I'm about an hour and 1/2 from Chattsworth... I'm willing to help with transport, boarding at my vet or whatever I can do to help to get her on her way to a new life.

If you can pay for board, we can take her! We are VERY short on funding right now! Juggling several dogs!

Re: Chatsworth GA: Last Day Today for 11 Month-Old

Dawn, did you speak to anyone at the shelter?

I have left a message for Pauline Davis with the shelter to call me back about this girl asap. I can pick her up and bring her to Knoxville to be boarded at my vet's office. I am not affiliated with any rescue but have done numerous rescues on my own so my vet can certainly vouch for me. I don't mind paying some out of pocket expenses for boarding, etc but please know that I have 10 rescue animals of my own so I wouldn't mind some help if the pulling fees and vet bill become overwhelming.
Also, I will need an estimated timeline regarding how long she will need to be boarded at my vet and details about transport to MA. Feel free to PM me or email me at [email protected]

Re: Chatsworth GA: Last Day Today for 11 Month-Old

I have tried calling the main shelter number at 706-695-8003 as well as the cell numbers for Pauline Davis and Lisa Hester and have yet to speak to anyone.
I need to know if Dawn has faxed a rescue application to the shelter and has gotten a confirmed approval for her to be pulled. This shelter waives the pull fee for rescues but seems pretty strict about requirements for the rescue application.

I have also spoken with my vet and they told me to bring her any time. My vet is located in Knoxville, TN: Companion Animal Hospital, (865)689-2789. Connie is the receptionist.

Re: Chatsworth GA: Last Day Today for 11 Month-Old

I finally spoke with an officer at Murray Co Shelter about this girl. He told me that her rescue has been approved but he did not know any details. I left my name and number for Pauline Davis (shelter director) to call me.
My window of opportunity to pick her up today is quickly closing since the shelter closes in about 2 hours. They are closed on Fridays until 3pm (for euth).
Unless I get a confirmation from them today, I will not be able to pick her up until tomorrow afternoon.

Folks, please do not assume that this girl is safe just yet. I'm a little hesitant to take on the responsibility until I have confirmation from everyone that I will not get stuck with her being boarded indefinitely at my vet's office.

I'm so worried about this girl! Dawn, is it your rescue that contacted the shelter already?

Dawn: Can you PLEASE let Shannon, who has made a wonderful offer and is a proven caregiver, know what the status is?

Dawn - which rescue is lined up to take her?

Re: Chatsworth GA: Last Day Today for 11 Month-Old

It's almost 5pm and I've yet to hear back from anyone at the shelter. I won't be online again until later tonight or tomorrow afternoon. My plans are to be at the shelter tomorrow soon after 3pm to get her and bring her to Knoxville and then we'll see where it goes from there. Several members of this board have my cell# and can reach me this evening if any plans change.
Thanks y'all.

Re: Chatsworth GA: Last Day Today for 11 Month-Old

Darcy,
I was told she's going to an approved foster home in Georgia. Are you interested in her???
She'll still need a rescue organization to step up for her, but at least she'll be out of there and safe...
