Web Sites to Show Pictures of Dogs & Cats from Shut-Down Sharp County Kennels

FEBRUARY 2, 2005 - Posted at 4:34 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansans will soon be able to view pictures on the Internet of the scores of animals that were on hand when two Sharp County kennels were recently shut down.

The site is for people with missing pets and for those considering adopting one of the dogs or cats.  The animals were taken into federal custody after the January 21 closure of Martin Creek Kennels and Pat's Pine Tree Farm near Williford.  The complaint was part of a settlement of an animal abuse complaint filed by federal authorities. 

Wannda Turner of Northeast Arkansans for Animals says most of the 89 dogs and 146 cats are still located at the kennels.  "NAFA will take a team of individuals back in on Saturday to document each and every one of the animals, and they will appear on the Internet for anyone to look at and see if it happens to be one of their missing animals, or if a rescue group or individual would like to adopt," said Turner.

The kennels had been one of the largest operations in the country supplying dogs and cats as subjects for laboratory testing, officials said.

Chester "C.C." Baird, his wife, Patsy, and their two daughters had denied accusations that some of the animals at their kennels were pets that had been stolen.

The photographs can be seen on the Northeast Arkansans for Animals Website at www.NAFAcares.org, or at www.petfinder.org
