Molly came into our lives when her owner contacted us for help with pet food. Molly's owner was homeless and Molly was staying with someone else. Molly's family got her back only to find she was pregnant. Molly's family was struggling already and Molly ended up having 9 puppies. Molly's family also had a cat named Peanut. So now instead of having 2 pets they suddenly had 11 animals to care for. Molly's owner also has two boys living at home that are twins and one of them is special needs. We gladly helped them out with food for the animals. Two weeks after helping them the family was fighting a whole new battle. The police arrived at their home thinking it had been abandoned. The living conditions were very poor and the kids were taken out of the home. They were told Animal Control would be coming for all the animals. They were also told the house was going to be condemned and demolished. Molly's owner was very upset and contacted us because she was so worried about the animals going to a kill-shelter (which their local shelter is a kill shelter). We contacted Kristy Ritter (Rescue Coordinator for Greene County Animal Control) and told her to expect momma and the puppies and we also contacted a local cat rescue to help Peanut. Two days after the kids left the animals were surrendered over to animal control. The puppies left the shelter immediately and left for rescue and Peanut was tagged for Sherri's Kitty Rehab and Critter Cradle. Sherri had met this family and Peanut a few years back and was not going to let anything happen to her cat. Molly however became were distraught and was not tolerating shelter life well at all. She had her whole life flipped upside down and was obviously very confused. We stayed in contact with animal control and Molly's family. Sadly we got a call that Molly was being deemed unadoptable and this meant she was to be euthanized in a couple of days. Molly's owner contacted me the next day and said the police had misinformed her and the house was not going to be demolished. She was going to be able to stay there. So we immediately said call Animal Control and see if Molly can come home. They said YES!!!!! There were several fees that had to be paid and we raised the money to pay those fees in about 30 minutes. Molly's family did not have a car so we were able to drive up there and take her to the shelter to pick up Molly. Molly was so happy and couldn't stop wiggling! We took Molly and her mom back home and left them with household supplies, toiletries, and lots of goodies for Molly. Molly's life was saved by a team effort. It took the shelter working with us, monetary donations made by supporters, and donations of supplies for Molly and her family. Molly's family has a long road to being back on their feet, but Molly is home and loved.Peanut wil stay in rescue until her family can take care of her again, then she too will reunite with them! We never want the animals to end up in animal control, but we will fight for them right along with the family because we want to do all we can to keep families together!
