Meet Remy. This poor fella came in today through animal control and is seriously the sweetest most gentle soul. But somewhere down the line, he didn't get the care he needed. His whole body is puffy and swollen, and even though he's extremely uncomfortable he just wants to be held.

Just before Remy came in we had a separate dog named lady bug come in with very similar issues.

These guys deserve so much better!

Please remember your pets DEPEND on you to keep them healthy and safe. They are your responsibility.

Are any of these pups who are being pulled for transport available for adoption? I saw that black and white Collie's picture and would like to meet the pup.

We came in to help and were told that we couldn't foster because we didn't live in Fort Smith. Then we were told the opposite. Then we were told we couldn't even see the animals available for foster. You all have people willing to help and then turn people away.

I can foster again. I fostered five puppies for the Wisconsin transport.

Ninette Sosa Do you know anyone who can help?
