Operation Animal Hope
Yesterday is a day I will never forget..
A day of reflection, friendship, overwhelming emotions and hope.
I can't say too much, since it's a criminal proceeding, but I can share with you information that is already out there in the media.

Click here to watch a local NBC TV news report on the sting.

Other news stations:
FOX 17

I was one of the many animal rescue organizations asked by the sherrif's department to help with the seizure of puppymill dogs.

I had a chance to work side by side with The Humane Society of the United States and will continue to do so in the future. They are an amazing group of dedicated individuals, as were ALL the people I worked with yesterday. The equipment sent to transport and care for the animals was truly impressive.

Click here to read the HSUS report on the Operation.

To see everyone come together for the animals, there are no words..

I was not allowed to take any photos at the site, since this is a criminal case.
I do have a few that I can share of the day..
My vet Dr. Dixon, is just a great guy. He interuppted plans with family and friends and days off to come to help with the animals. Processing animals all day long with his friend and vet tech Andrea.

This was my outfit for the day.. The Hazmat suit people really need to work on a shorter version for us little people:)

I've got to run, it's going to be a very, VERY busy week, but wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten about the auction.
Life happens and unfortunately around here , it's ALWAYS happening:)
BERNIE.... THANK YOU for helping with the care of God's Creatures! They bring so MUCH JOY to our lives!

Looking forward to the auction. I hope to purchase a couple of pieces maybe for myself or as gifts.

wow girly! you are so brave! thanks for all you do for the animals! Stan says hi!!!
Great news that Tennessee is doing something about the puppy mills. Hopefully legislation will follow. I cannot imagine what it would be like going into a place like this. My heart goes out to you and the other people involved. Hoping for health and loving homes for the dogs. peace
What a mindblowing experience. Cant imagine what it must have been like.
Will be sending you something for the art auction this week.
Oh my. It just breaks my heart to see what some people do to animals. God Bless you for your kindness and all the love you give to these wonderful creatures.
the whole ordeal must have been an adrenaline rush!

by the way... you look pretty snazzy with the get up! :)
Your so sexy in that hot hax-mat suit!
this is so awesome bernie. i'm so proud of you for getting involved (and for looking so cute in a hazmat suit, lol)
Wow, Bernie..watching that video just tore me apart. It must have been very heartwarming to be a part of the team that helped to rescue these poor animals. I hope that this woman is penalized and forever banned from owning ANY pets in the future!
You are an amazing person. I enjoy your blog so much. Now I will go and get another kleenex ...this is so sad here.
I found you through Beth's site. You are my hero. I have been a avid cat lover all my life. When I was young it wasn't mandatory to fix cats and I can remember having 15 at one time. I'm so proud of you and your life, even though I don't know you, I sure know your soul and girl, you rock.

Did I ever tell you your're my hero. You're every thing I wish I could be. - well you know the song. - yup me again. Just listened to the news piece. Wow!
Great job. My name is Tammy Molnar. I own Cumberland Canine Training Centers. I was at Critter Clinic last Sunday and I was so impressed with the organization and kindness of all the people. Our dog training company donated one free private behavior training lesson for each puppy/dog that is adopted. These poor canine's will most likely show many behavior issues as they get adjusted to their new homes and we just want to do our part to help them, during those times. I have contacted all the news channels to try to get them to make this public, so anyone that doesn't recieve this information for some reason will know where to call. Maybe entering it into your blog will help. Thank you again for everything you do for our animals.

Hi Bernie. Tammy here with Cumberland Canine. Someone finally found out that we could help and I started a blog and keep it updated each day as Zoey begins her recovery and is formally being trained. Please stop by and ask all your friends to stop by too. I am new to this so I am not sure how to give you a formal invitation. But I can tell you it is located at Yahoo, under Tammy Molnar. Thanks again for getting all those animals out of that place.
