Hi Harmony Family! We know that some of you were contacted previously to the press release when we got the phone call from Animal Control. We knew that if we stepped up that we would have community support for a time and needed to just make the decision to help. We will need experienced volunteers to help with constructing new shelters (and the ongoing fencing project that was put on hold for the past few days) for some of the animals this Saturday (January 10th, 2015). Donations are always greatly appreciated as the need will being ongoing until all the animals are deemed healthy and ready for new homes and placed in new homes. We would like to make sure you also remember that all donations are tax deductible at this time and every time you make a donation and that 100% of all donations GO TO THE ANIMALS. There is no volunteer that is paid for their service to the rescue for the Rescues.
Some of the animals are in fact pregnant and that will incur further costs such as vet care. We ask for your help in this if you feel you want to make a donation straight to the Dallas Vet Clinic in our name. This will go for the care of these animals. Thank you for all of your faith in us just like we have faith in our Harmony Family, without you we cannot do a great service to the animals of our communities in Oregon and Washington and make positive impact with the our efforts, we are a team! (If you are new to Harmony that includes you!)
This is not how we envisioned the beginning of 2015 for the rescue but as you know we do a very good job at answering the call for animals in need.
As far as rehoming here is the message we are sharing with everyone so that nobody is missed in the message.
We wanted to give you the update on the animals rehoming situation. For now all of the animals are considered the State of Oregon’s evidence and for the next 30 days they will not be able to rehomed. The rehoming process is going to be handled how the State will decide. We would like to be part of that process and hope to be of help should they decide to have us facilitate it but we have to wait and see what they want to do at that time. None of the animals are in any shape to be moved at this time and many are stressed and being seen by a great veterinarian. Please keep an eye on updates on the animals so that you can find out when the rehoming will be. Thank you for all the great offers of homes and caring. That is AMAZING! It says so much about everyone’s hearts being in the right place for these animals.
