Busy Week for Polk County Labs

This week has been filled with a lot of hard work and great reward as 231 dogs have been being pulled from Polk County animal services. The labs and lab mixes have been placed in foster homes, pet resorts, and some have even found forever homes. A New Beginning's Director, Debbie Bruno, has been working all day everyday this week to get these dogs out of animal services, vetted, and on their way to a safe living environment. Today the last 63 labs that animal services is allowing us to take, will be out and in A New Beginning's care. Polk County is still holding 26 of the dogs until the pending legal investigation is dealt with.

Polk County Animal Hospital has been AMAZING in helping these dogs. They have opened their doors to us to use the facility to bring the dogs straight from animal services, update all their vaccines, help keep the operation organized, and of course have been more than friendly and helpful to the volunteers and the dogs.

I spent the afternoon out at the Polk County Animal Hospital yesterday and it was just incredible the amount of time, work, and volunteers it takes to make sure these animals are receiving the best care. A New Beginning would like to thank everyone who has given up their time to lend a hand for these great dogs. Your work has not gone unnoticed, just look in the faces of these dogs who are thrilled to be out of animal services and running around and playing.

A New Beginning is in need of copy paper and XL sheet protectors, as well as, monetary donations, crates, cleaning supplies, towels, rugs, dog food, flea and heartworm preventatives, bowls, foster homes, loving forever homes, and much much more!
