"This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine." If there was a theme song for Miss Courtney, this would certainly be it. Some personalities shine in even the darkest times, this is the case with Courtney. We first met this love bug as we do many of our beloved rescues, on her last day at Memphis Animal Services. She was in her 11th hour, a heartworm positive, bully breed, things seemed pretty grim for her. But you know what? She had no idea. She danced and pranced when we talked to her, she was good with kids and paid no attention to other dogs. She exuded happiness and we couldn't let her die that day. So we adopted her, got her all fixed up and now she's ready to find her forever family where she can shine on....
Wilson Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer-run, foster-based rescue group in Memphis, Tennessee. We focus on rescuing dogs who are in danger of being euthanized at the city's run shelter and other midsouth shelters. We strive to place dogs in loving homes not only locally but in cities in the Midwest and New England areas. There simply aren't enough people adopting in the Memphis area to keep up with the amount of adoptable dogs who find themselves homeless.
For Example- In July 2015 Memphis Animal Services(city run animal control facility) took in 753 dogs. 191 were surrendered by their owners and 428 were brought in as strays either by animal control or by citizens. Of those strays 39 were returned to their owners. That was a good month for reclaims, typically only 5% of strays are returned to their owners. Of the 6,212 animals MAS has taken in through July of this year, 315 have been reclaimed. 336 dogs are euthanized in the month of July 2015, bringing the total of euthanized so far this year to 2228.
These numbers are from just ONE animal control facility. These numbers are why it has become our passion to help save these precious lives. To represent the underdog, to prove that rescues are just as loving and deserving as purebred dogs.
