Tennessee rescue "Angel Wings" shut down

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Sorry that this news is old, but I just received a message about in in another forum. It is so sad; those poor cats, living in such awful conditions. When I see their faces, and read the stories of their rescues, I feel so badly for them; I wonder why their original owners surrendered them in the first place. If only AngelWings could have done the job right - what a burden on the other Tennesse rescue groups...so sad, all the way around.

Yes we know about this first-hand One of the moderators had sent a rescued cat there. I believe the cat is still "missing"

OH NO!! I was looking at the kitties in the "LOST" section of the article and I am haunted by the whole situation- when I come home from errands today, I plan to light a candle & devote some time praying for answers regarding the missing ones & for open hearts/good homes for the rescued ones. I am still stunned - I just assumed that rescue groups would be more closely monitored, by Animal Control & that the public would see the animals regularly! I feel so ignorant,now. I also hope that this incident will not harm the amount of donations sent to reputable rescues. And there were dogs & ponies needing rescue from AW facilities, too!! I thank God daily that there are wonderful people like you who really do help the animals! Awful stories like this make me TRIPLE-THANKFUL that you & all the other wonderful rescuers/fosters are here on this earth making it a better place for so many precious lives! God Bless You! Susan

How sad!! One wonders how someone who seemingly was at one time well intentioned became so negligent of the cats. I am happy the Board was able to step in but what a sad story!! I was especially moved by the pictures of the ill cats - and that lonely looking Siamese. (I wonder how one would adpopt one of the cats if not in Tn?)

I noticed that the shelter in GA that gets the military pets is willing to ship out of state, if the adopter pays for shipping & container. It's scary for the animals, to be sure. I hope that the shelter gets at least some reliable references; there are some situations worse than being PTS. Maybe the new rescue in TN would be willing to work something out, just to place a cat in a good home.

YUCK! Unfortunately I did volounteer work for a local rescue that referred this rescue and they felt (and still feel) horrible about it.

I read this a wee while ago back on the site.

If I adopted a kitty from a shelter from some distance away, I would go there myself to get the cat. I cannot imagine putting any of those poor kitties thru a cargo trip!!!
