Video removed from YouTube. As I am sure you've heard, animals were seized from this Sanctuary by animal welfare agents. I bet the folks running this sanctuary had the best of intentions, but may have let things slip out of control. Being a no-kill rescue is great, but you have to be able to handle the animals you do have before you can take on more animals. That's the catch-22 of animal rescue. If you don't euthanize, you can't accept animals you don't have the room for.
Having volunteered at a no-kill shelter in Little Rock, I can attest that it is difficult having to hear the receptionist denying people who are attempting to bring in animals. While some may have been negligent with intact aniamls, many others had animals dumped on them or on their property.

Try Mississippi Animal Rescue for the video shot at the temporary shelter.
