Rolling Rescue cuts ribbon today in Newport

Dr. Carol Hood and her co-volunteers and partners at the Newport Animal Shelter cut the ribbon today for the rolling rescue building in Newport, named the Robert Brannon Rolling Rescue after contributor Robert Brannon. Over 6000 dog lives have been saved with the rolling rescue of pups taken to other parts of the nation needing dogs for adoption.
Lots of barking was the backdrop (barkdrop!) for the event just outside the new shelter. A van transports the pups to New York and Wisconsin and other areas of the nation desiring dogs appropriate for adoption. Newport Animal Shelter is the leading center in the southeast for saving lives of animals. All of the veterinarians, including Dr. Carol Hood and Dr. Compton, volunteer their time at no charge for the love of the animals. The next "Big Fix" is scheduled for March 12 and is the spay/neuter program to assist with animal population control. Five veterinarians from the surrounding area will be assisting and the surgery area will be expanded at the Newport Animal Shelter for the day long event.
Any contributions are appreciated as this is a privately owned facility supported by loving contributions without any tax burden to the population of Newport and Cocke County.
