Since officials uncovered a massive dog fighting ring and abuse situation in Adams County, an outpouring of help has come from community members.
The initial Go Fund Me page raised over 20,000 and there were piles and piles of dog food being dropped off at the Sheriff’s Department.
Since then he Go Fund Me account for the ACSO Animal Rescue has been deactivated and is no longer taking donations because the responsibility for the dogs has been turned over to the ASPCA. The following statement has been placed on our Go Fund Me page.
“There were several questions as to what happens to these funds now that the ASPCA has taken over. The funds raised up to this point will be used to cover expenses incurred by our initial contact with these animals including veterinarian expenses and expenses to Natchez-Adams Humane Society. Once these are taken care of, we will sit down with the ASPCA and determine how best to apply any monies left over.”
We want to thank everyone who donated via Go Fund Me as well as everyone who brought dog food, bedding, collars, leashes, cash and checks to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office. The outpouring of love and support from people across America and as far away as the UK has been humbling.
