They are being held in another county and if a foster does not step up by TOMORROW, they will be euthanized as per the 10 day hold policy. Tippah County Animal Rescue is comprised of a network of foster homes and they are at max capacity.

They HAVE to have new fosters volunteer or these dogs will not be able to be saved. If you or someone you know can foster even just one dog for a few weeks, message Tippah County Animal Rescue on Facebook. Fostering saves lives and with your help, four can be saved.
