Operation Sweethearts

If you follow us on Facebook, you may have seen me posting links to articles about a recent bust in Kentucky, that liberated close to 100 dogs from a life of unimaginable abuse and neglect.  Animal Rescue Corps had been working for months off of tips, gathering enough information to serve a seizure warrant on the property, which had been opearating under the guise of a “rescue organization.” 

On Valentine’s Day of this year, these dogs finally were able to start their new life.  They were taken from the property to an emergency shelter here in Nashville.  They were groomed, vetted, fed, and loved.  Last weekend, the majority of them were placed into foster homes with local rescue organizations – and wouldn’t you just know that our super awesome rescue was one of them?  They jumped up to the plate and volunteered to take not three, not ten, but seventeen of the these sweet babies! 

**WARNING** video contains some graphic content.

So now, without further ado, I’m thrilled to formally introduce you to a handful of the newest members of the Agape family:

Don’t you just wanna smooch and love on all of their little faces??  There are five more dogs that we don’t have pictures of at this time, but all of them will be on the Adoptable Pets page of Agape’s website once they are socialized and healthy enough to begin looking for their furever homes. 

As you can probably imagine, some of these dogs are going to need some very expensive care in the near future, to get them into tip-top adoptable shape.  Many of them needs medications, treatment for broken bones or bite wounds, and some are even going to need surgery. If you can sacrifice one morning latte this week, even $5 would help towards putting a dent in some of the medical bills that Agape has taken on with these Sweethearts.  If you would like to  donate, or sponsor one of these dogs, you can do so here: Agape Animal Rescue Wish List.

So WELCOME to the Agape Family, Sweethearts!  You’re safe now, the worst is behind you – and the best is yet to come.
