Animal Rescue

Tate county does not have a animal control officer, nor a shelter of any kind. Animals are dumped on the side of the road in this county or killed inhumanely because people don't know what to do with the animals they don't want. This includes cats and dogs. There have also been quite a few cases of neglect of horses and cows.

I have met many kind hearted people who take in stray animals, nurse them, feed them, and end up keeping them. They also don't know what to do with them, but at least they can't dump them on the roads. Like me, they are angry at the County for not putting animals welfare higher on their priority list. They end up spending their own money on helping these animals.

There is another group called In Defense of Animals, they do all kinds of animal abuse investigation. Their link is: In Defense of Animals.
