Every year, like clock work, as the trees start to bud and the flowers start to bloom, our inbox fills up and adoptions slow down.
We receive emails from across the nation chalked full of pleas to help Hounds:
Blueticks, Red Bones, Blood Hounds, Tri-colored/Treeing Walkers, English & American Foxhounds, Black Mouth Curs, Catahoulas, and Black and Tans...just to name a few.
Hunting parties come together to chase down anything from turkeys to mountain lions.
They bring their hounds along to help chase down the prey. Sometimes humans involved with certain hunting parties realize that particular dogs won't hunt the prey they are seeking. Or the dog may not be aggressive or agile enough. And sometimes the dogs that don't do their job are shot, tied to trees with no chance at escape, or are just left behind.
The ones left behind will come walking out of wooded areas with numbers spray painted/ or written in shoe polish on their fur (this is to identify which person they belong to).
All too often, by the time they reach a farm house or come across a person, they collapse from exhaustion and can die because malnutrition.
As many of you know, MFDM.org was founded, all those years ago, because of six hounds in need. I have a hard time saying, "no", to these precious souls. They have done nothing to deserve this particular fate.
Spring of 2018 has brought several hounds to our attention. Over the next two weeks we have eight hounds coming to Denver. We are looking for loving, stable foster homes. We need donations to help get them medical care, feed them, and transport them.
You can donate through our Face Book page (in the upper right hand corner) or you can go to our web site at MFDM.org or dogrescuecolorado.org
We are happy to provide you with a tax donation letter upon request.
If you want to mail your donation please email me at Gwin5280@gmail.com and I will send you the physical address.
NOT ALL HUNTERS ARE BAD!!! NOT ALL HUNTERS USE OR MISTREAT DOGS!
NO BASHING OR DEBATES on hunting will be entertained on THIS PAGE.
Please share their story in hopes that we can find the perfect adopters for each of them.
Thank you for all you
