Every day, animals in Union County are ignored, unfed, abandoned and abused. When YOU call us in, we RESPOND! As a private nonprofit organization, we receive no public funds for animal cruelty investigation work, despite being the legal authority for the enforcement of public law. We take the animals in that need the most work, and we spend months, and thousands of dollars sometime rehabilitating them, caring for them, and ultimately placing them into new and loving homes. Please help us with our rising costs...and learn a little more about the story behind just three of the dogs we took in this year below...


-Odette was a pit-mix that was abandoned in her house after the owner was evicted. After long-term neglect took its toll on Odette, she developed a serious spinning issue and it was difficult to get her to connect with humans. She was underweight and full of parasites and the only reason she did not starve to death is because a good Samaritan fed her through a crack until deciding to call UCHS. After being seized and spending a few months in our care, our Executive Director personally drove her 1,600 miles to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary for rehabilitation and placement. The owner currently has a warrant out for his arrest for charges of animal cruelty and abandonment and has paid $0 for the costs we have incurred.

Juliette was found starved almost to death on the side of the road in between our county and a neighboring county. Juliette is a redbone coonhound that weighed less than 30 pounds upon intake, and has almost doubled in weight. Juliette has been renamed Jewels, and is currently in a long-term foster care situation and since the abuse happened out of County, we were left with the sole responsibility to care for her. The owner has paid $0 towards expenses for Jewels.

Skinny Minnie was locked up in a yard and was so emaciated that she looked like a greyhound-mix, but was in fact a 20 pound lab. We have cared for Skinny Minnie for a month now, and will continue to care for her until the courts have granted us ownership. Skinny has gained 80% of her bodyweight back and is over 35 pounds. The owner has also been charged with two counts of animal cruelty and awaits his day in court. He has currently paid $0 towards the care of Skinny Minnie.
