Trudy, any way to find out how many no-kill shelters there are in NC and immediate
states?  Seems like a concerted effort to divide the animals equally and absorb them
into other shelters might be an option.  It's all I can think of at the moment.  What a
shame.  Poor babies.

I agree that finding close(r) no-kills might be the way to go here ~ and perhaps dropping the adoption fees (or lowering them). I hate "free" animals because we know the kind of people who sometimes "adopt" them. I hope that there are solutions other than mass killing.

Some rescues from further away will sometimes help in situations like this.  I know they network.  Hoping for a good outcome.

Trudy, I wonder if Christie and Gina at Petconnection.com might have ideas of who to contact.

Contact Best Friends sanctuary asap, send them this info & a plea for help.  They frequently get involved in these kinds of situations:

Taking in 650 animals is really too many animals unless you have a really big facility.    Certainly not in the animals best interest for sure.   There must be some other no-kill shelters closer in  surrounding states where  some could be  placed & maybe some foster homes found.   I also think that they should lower the price a bit but not give the animals away for free as some people do not value things that they get for nothing.   It is really a shame but there are just too many animals & not enough people who want the responsibility or can financially afford to care for them.    I hope that a  satisfactory solution will be found for some if not all of the animals.

Hearts United for Animals may also be able to help. They're in Nebraska. I've just sent them an inquiry, linking to this Itchmo page.

I emailed Best Friends, will let you know if I get an answer back.  If others email, it might have more impact (though 650 animals is a LOT to ignore!!)

HUA mentioned that they had looked into the issue and the dogs appear to be mostly big ones. HUA is maxed out right now and cannot take them.
