Melanie Wright and her husband Dr. Gary Wright have undertaken a great project called “Pappy’s Animal Rescue.”
The two of them, along with an additional seven member Board of Directors, as well as Dr. Lois Duelburg, the local veterinarian from Austwell, have created a wonderful program to save dogs, cats and any other abandoned and abused animals.
This is great; however, it does require funds to operate and feed these poor animals.
Right now there is only an outdoor shelter with a few pens to accommodate animals given/rescue unto their loving care and generosity.
When cold, bad weather comes to us, they will need a building shelter of some kind.
This will necessitate those of you who care about animals left to their own demise, to donate money to a fund for whatever the rescue mission needs.
I would hope the governing bodies of the towns of Refugio, Woodsboro, Bayside, Austwell and Tivoli, as well as the Refugio County Commissioners Court would assist in some degree.
Abandoned and mistreated animals are a community problem.
If you love and care for your dog or cat, think about those who get nothing.
Help where help is needed. Contact Melanie Wright at 361-827-3732 and donate to this great cause.
