Justice for Animals in Avery County, NC

PLEASE READ!!!! I NEED YOUR HELP!!!!! I have recently been in and around Avery County, North Carolina and have noticed the horrendous conditions that some of the animals in the town are living in. I saw dogs dead on the side of the road. Dogs without water or food. Dogs without shelter. Dogs limping and obviously hurt. Dogs and puppies who were shivering because of the below freezing temperatures. I even saw dogs locked in those metal hunting boxes and were left in there for hours in the freezing cold without food or water!!!!! It was clearly animal abuse and neglect which is illegal in NC so why is nothing being done?? The picture attached to this campaign is a picture of one of the injured dogs and the dog locked in the metal hunting box.  

The cops in this county have known about this situation for years and have not done anything. Avery County is the only county in NC without animal control and this must change! I have created a petition: http://chng.it/thQWwhZ7 with more details. 

I am raising money to help with any costs or expenses that may show up including attorney expenses, dog care expenses, or donations to rescues or nonprofits that help. Any amount helps. Thank you for caring about the safety and well-being of these dogs. The fight continues.
