Animal Rescue Shelter Forced Out of Town by Local Harassment
Miracle Ranch Animal Rescue Illegally Told by Long County Commissioner to ‘Get Out by December 1st’
By: Animal Aid and Miracle Ranch
Miracle Ranch, an animal rescue shelter, opened in February 2012 with support from Long County, GA and city officials. They have been successful in saving 4000 ‘death row’ animals and completed the biggest animal rescue event in GA history on October 5, 2013. Now the Long County Commissioner tells them they have to close down and ‘get out by December 1st.
“This is not the Wild West. We were approved and welcomed to Long County and have poured over $200,000. into the community by using local businesses. We are saving animals and have always adhered to the laws. This is illegal harassment and now I fear for the safety of our volunteers and the dogs we try so hard to save”, stated Karen Talbot of Animal Aid and Miracle Ranch.
It is unclear why Long County believes they have the right to illegally close Miracle Ranch. Repeated calls have been made to the Long County Commissioner at 912- 545- 2143 with no response.
