Below is an update about the hoarder case (an individual had over 100 animals in a double wide trailer). The animals are now safe with our friends at Angels of Assisi in Roanoke - but it takes a village, so please donate if you can (see link below for their Paypal, remember, if you and your friends donated just $5 each, it would all add up to help cover the medical care for these animals who so deserve the very best now that they have made it safely to Assisi.) Often I can donate $50 or $100, but when I cannot, I go ahead and send $5 or $10, because I know, from having been on the front lines, that it all helps, it adds up. So please do what you can - thanks! Melanie

Thank you to the staff and volunteers for helping yesterday...
Deb and Bobbie, thank you for working a 17 hour day with a smile on your faces. Dr. Shelley and Dr. Emily, thank you for staying at the clinic until 10:30 pm last night, and for the all the hours you will put in this week.
Bo, Tammy, Logan, Brittany, Amber- thank you for staying well into the night cleaning and feeding. Rick and Sarah, we always know you will show up in our time of need, thank you. Dr. Farrell- you came intending to meet some old friends for lunch during your vacation, and ended up working a 10 hour day; we loved having you back in the clinic.
Bo, Zack, Tim, you'll have 10 times the workload for a while, and we know you had a full one already. Thank you.
Norm and Barb Mason are the founders of Angels of Assisi, and they never waiver when are we asked to help with a rescue. They are beyond doubt a voice for those who can't speak.
Soon our 15 minutes of fame will be over, but the incredible workload of caring for 102 animals will continue. Take a look at some of them below, and you'll see why it's all worthwhile.
