URGENT CHESTERFIELD, SC - Tonight we received the following message out of Chesterfield and LCAR wants to step up to help support Operation Hope by pulling animals in this album to safety before Wednesday when their lives are at risk if not adopted/rescued. To pull this of we need your support. For any dog we can raise a $200 sponsorship for we will pull them to safety. We hope to save at least 11 but with the funding we would commit to more in this album http://on.fb.me/UVvPqy. A full shelter and 40-60 puppy mills survivor in need before Wednesday are all the ingredients for a tragic outcome. Let us all work together to ensure that none of the animals in this situation lose their lives. The photos below are just some of the shelter residents at risk.

If there is a dog in particular that you would like to sponsor LCAR will rescue that animal if we can raise $200. To indicate your intention for your donation you can note it via paypal in the note to seller, post on this page or email to supporthope@lcarescue.org. Let's get all of these dogs out and safe before Wednesday. http://fnd.us/c/aPun3

Thank you!

Message from Chesterfield County Animal Services------

Good Evening,

It is with a heavy heart, but with HOPE that I bring the following news to you.

We need your help here at Chesterfield County, SC Animal Services!!!

We came across a puppy mill situation here in our county. We thought the individual was going towork with us and sign the animals over to us so we could place them immediately. Unfortunately, this is not going to be the case. As it stands now we have a seizure order in place at theperson's property. This basically means no animals can be removed from the property without the approval of myself or the Magistrate's office. All animals have been photographed, categorized andinventoried on the premises for purpose of evidence. We need all the dogs in our shelter to berescued or adopted to avoid them from being put to sleep to make room for this case which will range between 40 to 60 animals. Animal control and myself will be at the Magistrate's officeMonday morning seeking to modify the seizure order to remove the animals from the premises.

Once this is done all the animals included in the seizure will be removed in a systematic approach, utilizing county vehicles only, we will set a rallying point elsewhere. We are requesting vet techs, groomers, transportation drivers, vehicles and volunteers to assist us once we have the go ahead from the judge. We realize this is a lot to ask from the our volunteers and our rescue partners. We have an operational plan in place for "OPERATION NEW HOPE." The dogs will have to be held here in our facility until the judge releases them from our care. We do not know how long this will take. It could be hours, days or weeks. We are hoping that once the individual see's the fines and possible criminal charges they are facing they will change their mind and sign the animals over immediately.

If you can pull from the shelter we will be extremely appreciative. If you can volunteer, transport, help with paperwork, etc. that would be great. No hands will be put to waste. The work will be hard and dirty but rewarding just the same. I am sorry I can not offer more information at this time but as you all know we do not want to jeopardize this case or the animals at risk. Amy Yow our dispatcher and office manager will co-ordinate the volunteers and rescues. I will have better idea Monday Morning around 10:00am as when we will need your services. Again, I apologize for not giving more information and making everyone hurry up and wait but we have a process we need to go through with the court.

This Operation will be called "OPERATION NEW HOPE" in hopes these fur babies will now have a chance for a new hope in life.

Every dog that has been here at our shelter for more than 5 days is at risk. If they are listed under adoptable pets album or rescue album they are in urgent need!!!! Unfortunately, space willbe needed for this situation. Again, thank you everyone for your help and continued support at the shelter.

Please everyone refer to our Facebook page Chesterfield County, SC Animal Services.
