By Rachel McDanielDozens of tails are wagging today as animals that were slated to be euthanized are enjoying their new forever homes and foster homes. Angels Among Us Pet Rescue Inc. and Southern Crescent Canine Rescue teamed up to save 26 animals from the Barnesville Animal Shelter April 25 during ‘Project Empty Shelter.’Angels Among Us Pet Rescue Inc. visited the local shelter and rescued 17 dogs and 4 cats as an Atlanta news crew documented the rescue. Sandra Bray of Southern Crescent Canine Rescue took five of the dogs and had contacted Angels Among Us about the other animals in danger of being euthanized.’It was a beautiful day,’ she said. ‘They have swept our shelter twice before but have never taken so many dogs at once. The shelter was overwhelmed with owner surrenders and nice spayed and neutered, vetted dogs. The shelter is still getting more dogs and cats every day. There was another mother cat with kittens at the shelter the very next day.’ Bray regularly takes photos of the animals at the shelter and emails them to area rescue groups as well as posting them on social media sites.
