LIVES SAVED!  January 2015 - MCR was alerted to some 20 local dogs in danger, left on a property when their owner became unable to care for them.  Non socialized, the dogs were in danger of an uncertain future.  And unfortunately for them, they were Beagles and Hounds, not always everyone's favorite.  But MCR stepped up, tracked down the family and asked for the dogs - all of them!  Writer (The Beagle Lived and So Did I) and Beagle advocate, Teresa Rhyne stepped up when Charlotte reached out to her.  The dogs arrived in 3 truckloads and within hours headed to Priceless Pets Rescue in CA.  MCR kept 3 of the least socialized to rehab them and find them loving homes.  They are sadly cautious of human touch and glances.  None was spayed or neutered. 
Surgeries on the 3 at MCR are as follows: 1 had 8 teeth removed and was spayed on the 14th, 1 currently in heat awaits tumor removal and spay and the 3rd is scheduled for a spay. Donations can be made on their behalf and are greatly appreciated. Only one seems even near adoptability and 2 are in great need of rehabilitation which they will receive with volunteers at the ranch. MCR was able to give $900 to Priceless Pets for taking 16 dogs but that only goes so far. They too will appreciate donations to further cover spays, neuters, shots, microchips etc. Because most were older and special needs dogs, we know how much longer it can take to find the right homes or ask for adoption fees that even come close to covering the vet care.
