Toombs County, GA – Support has continued to mount for Alice, or “L’il Mama” as her owners refer to her – late last week, her story hit the national media.
On Friday, Scott Bennett, Director of the rescue organization Southern Comfort Animal Rescue, was interviewed by Jane Velez-Mitchell – correspondent for CNN.
Bennett was able to share Alice’s story and highlight the reasons that this fight is so important. It’s more than “just one dog” that is being fought for.
It is a fight for justice. It is a fight to bring about change for abused dogs in Georgia – for that matter, across the nation. Justice for Alice would be a symbolic win for all dogs that are treated inhumanely.
Bennett has secured a permit from Toombs County to hold a peaceful rally at the Toombs County Courthouse on March 16.
Supporters for Alice are hopeful that many people will show up and voice their support for Alice and for other dogs that have been treated inhumanely by their owners.
The rally is being held between 4-5:30 at the Toombs County Courthouse, 100 Courthouse Square, Lyons, GA on March 16.
Over 25,000 people have signed the “Save Alice, AKA the dog in the box” petition. Signatures meant to show the officials in Toombs County that people do care. People do want to see changes put in place for animal welfare. If you have not yet signed the petition, please take a moment to do so.
Alice would still be in that deplorable 5×8 ft box if she had not been discovered. Her world would still consist of filtered sunlight through meager wooden slats. Years of accumulated feces and urine would still be under her feet and her water and food would still be sitting among the filth.
Years of living in these conditions should not be discounted. Pressure should not let up. There is absolutely no reason to believe that the people that own Alice, or “L’il Mama” will not let her chain link kennel morph into yet another filthy prison as soon as the eyes of the world look away.
When the temperatures rise in this southern state as the summer months approach, what will happen to Alice? How long will she suffer in the intense heat as the sun beats down on the kennel that provides no shelter?
Please continue to show your support for Alice. If you are in the area of Toombs County, please put the peaceful rally date on your calendar.
