If you are a member of an organization that rescues dogs from the South or you have adopted a Southern pup, I would love to hear your story. You can reach me by leaving a comment or emailing me at jackiskole@yahoo.com. Also, send me a photo of your dog with the dog’s name and where he/she is from, and I’ll add it to the Gallery. Looking forward to hearing from you! Jacki Skole

  1. I live in Virginia and just adopted a Border Colie/Lab mix from the Charlottesville SPCA. Around here (and everywhere, I guess) the SPCA’s are locally funded and reflect the income level of the (human) population. The Charlottesville SPCA is like a spa. It has an on site vet and surgery center, the dogs only eat science diet, and there are so many volunteers that the dogs have lots of human interaction. Before adopting “Zoey”, my husband and I checked out the Nelson County SPCA, just 20 miles away from the Charlottesville SPCA… but a world away in terms of conditions. When we entered the building, the stench of cat urine overpowered us. Fortunately, the dog we wanted to see was outside so a staff member took us outside to meet him. We took him for a walk and he had diarrhea. The staff member said that was because all the food was donated so his diet changed constantly. We felt sorry for the guy but he wasn’t the right dog for us.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Carolyn. You are right — shelters often (not always) reflect the socio-economics of their communities. The most amazing shelters, in my opinion, are those in poorer areas that manage to create a humane and clean environment for their dogs and cats. That way the animals are socialized and they stay healthy — the perfect would-be pets.
