Blankets and other items needed for Jack Russells after hoarding bust.

Help Needed for Survivors of Rescue Bust

It is a loving rescue’s worst nightmare: The bust of a rescue-turned-hoarder situation and the abuse, neglect and senseless demise of dozens of dogs who had trusted someone to save them. Unfortunately, it happens a lot … and it just happened again. This time it hits way too close to home.

Orangeburg County Animal Control and Shelter in South Carolina raided a “rescue” over the weekend. They seized 53 dogs … most of whom are Jack Russells. 🙁 Many of their rescue mates were not so lucky to be saved. We will spare you the horrific details.

Donations of Items

Several Russell rescues in the south and across the country are bonding together to help the shelter, asking all of our supporters to do what you can. Orangeburg is a very small shelter and was not prepared for a huge intake like this. They are desperate for items to help house and, of course, care for the survivors, including:

  • Blankets and other items needed for Jack Russells after hoarding bust.Clorox
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Blankets
  • Cedar Shavings for Bedding
