PIEDMONT ANIMAL CONTROL UPDATE

Piedmont Animal Control building has been flooded by rain. 8 dogs drowned and a number of cats. Humane Society is transporting 9 dogs and 13 cats to Macklind facility for Act Now! Rescue to pick up. We need foster homes!

Tax deductible donations can be sent via Paypal- info@actnowrescue.org please put "Piedmont Disaster Fund" in the shipping instructions. Piedmont is not a 501c.

Checks can be mailed to:

Piedmont Animal Control
115 W Green St
Piedmont, MO 63957

The contents of the building are a total loss. They need to replace computer, fax, cordless phone, file cabinets, desk, and chair, and other standard office supplies. A number of monitors have been offered, but the real need is for the desktop computer itself.

Anything you can do to help would be much appreciated. At this time, supplies are being rounded up for transport to Piedmont. Among the supplies in most need are:

Slip leads, latex gloves, bleach, paper towels, work gloves, antibacterial soap, liquid antibiotics for dogs and cats, liquid wormer for dogs and cats, shavings for puppies and kittens, crates, blankets, towels, scrub brushes, dog and cat shampoo, flea and tick prevention, heartworm medication.

If you have any supplies to offer, please contact info@actnowrescue.org and we will arrange pickup.

Petsmart Charities is loading up their truck in Kansas City to send supplies!

Anything you can contribute would be much appreciated! Updates to come...thank you!

RESCUES CAN'T SAVE LIVES WITH PET LIMIT LAWS

Pet Limit Laws Limit Rescue Organizations and other Responsible Pet Owners, Not Irresponsible Pet Owners
An irresponsible pet owner will be irresponsible with one -- or 20 -- pets! Until a city can write an ordinance that forces people to CARE about their animals, a few irresponsible pet owners will continue to indirectly help in the killing of healthy, adoptable animals at kill shelters everywhere.
A rescue organization member is trained in how to handle more than 3 dogs, is responsible enough to say, "I can't handle any more dogs right now," pays to spay/neuter, vaccinate, and put pets on heartworm and flea prevention, and gives much needed additional time for the pet to find its forever home.

We have asked the City of Arnold to allow rescue organizations the opportunity to save more lives by going over the pet limit every now and then to save a life. Our many requests are falling on deaf ears.

If you believe the City of Arnold could -- and should -- tolerate rescue groups enough to make an exception to the dog limit every now and then to save a life, please contact Mary Holden at mholden@arnoldmo.org and Matt Unrein at munrein@arnoldmo.org, and contact your city council representatives and tell them there is such a thing as COOPERATION between government and citizens! We're doing it for the New JCAC Shelter Fund!
