Elementary Students Lend Helping Hand to Animal Control

Elementary Students Lend Helping Hand to Animal Control

Alexander II Elementary School students present a $500 check to Central Georgia Critter Advocates Requesting Ethical Standards (CARES) Friday, a Macon Police Department news release says.

The $500 donation will allow 10 families to adopt a pet for $25, rather than the full $75 adoption fee.

Macon Animal Control has to have all dogs and cats out of the shelter before June 7, when the shelter will be fumigated for a severe pest problem.

Students raised money by creating items to sell, to simulate what it's like to have a business.

Macon Animal Control Shelter Shutting Down June 6 - Lives in Danger

Macon Animal Control Shelter Shutting Down June 6 - Lives in Danger

Macon Animal Control shelter has been fighting a losing battle against rats and roaches for years. On June 7, pest control experts will descend on the shelter and eradicate these pests.

There's just one problem: no one can be in the shelter when this happens. Not the staff and not the animals.

The shelter must be emptied by the end of the day June 6. Unfortunately, this means that any dog, puppy, cat or kitten not rescued or adopted by that time will be killed.

AC Pup, the shelter mascot, has issued a plea on his Facebook page: "Please help us! All of my Pound Pals must be out by June 6."

Acting director Van VanDeWalker and the shelter staff are working closely with area rescuers and donors to get the animals out, but more animals come in daily, so it's an ongoing battle. The animals need the public's help now more than ever.

You need a puppy in your life. A sweet, bouncy, mischievous puppy with liquid brown eyes that look at you with love and complete trust. That's exactly what you need, and, lucky you, Macon Animal Control has several to choose from this week.

While the arguing goes on among humans over the conditions at the rundown animal control shelter, the kennels and cat cages filled up, as usual.
