Pup rescued from drainage pipe. HELP!!!

I recently took a battle with our town mayor to Fox17 news. I found a litter of pups at the river that had been surviving by consuming the carcass of their dead mother. 2 years later, we now have a county wide shelter!!! Unfortunately, people are still dumping their puppies on the side of the road. It took me most of a week to catch 2 puppies out of 7. The rest died. I have one left that needs a home. I am totally out of room. My oldest daughter has lost her bedroom to a pup and a kitten. Please help!!!

I have totally ran out of room. Just two days ago, my husband witnessed a man throw 2 young pups out of a truck and take off. They chased the truck down the road for a while and he chased them down to keep them from getting ran over. We rescue pit bulls because they are exploited so badly, it is hard to find them good homes without worrying about them. We are overrun by our dogs and just have no room left. My black lab is elderly and now lives in our laundry room. I have about 15 rescued dogs outside and 4 pits inside. We have a routine that keeps it all working good but we are totally out of space. The shelter is full and they are not accepting any more right now. I went through alot to rescue this little fellow and I just cant stand the thought of him going to a "kill" shelter. He looks like a rottie mix. The mother looked like an australian shephard mix. She would not come to us and kept barking while we chased her pups. Also, have another female lab mix with an injured front leg. It was like that when we found her. I believe it was broken when the "person" threw her out on the side of the road. I am worn out and need to get my house back.

sounds liek you need to go back to the news and get an advertisment to get donations to make the shelter bigger? raise more awareness, go to newspapers, police, make everyone aware of the situation. promote spaying and neutering, something's gotta get done for sure

I don't know, I would help, I would like to so much. Maybe I can, but I have alot of pets. I might, might, might, maybe be able to take one, just one dog. We have a space in the backyard probably 15x15 yards with a doghouse, like a "dog run". I might take one, but I would have to talk it over with my parents, since being 17 I still have some restrictions

I would love to help, but I don't know. We have had a Canadein Golden Retriever before, and I am full of pets now. I would love to help, I might, just might be able to help. I can only help with one dog though, I have a dog-run 15x15 yards w/ a house. Hopefully I can have it, contact me through pri.mess. about it. Where are you located? I am in NY

^^Get the police to make a 50$ or up fine for every pup or dog released. Really consider my post above, I am really thinking about it.
