Animal Rescue Group Teams Up With White County Community

MCRAE, Ark. - An animal rescue group is deploying its troops to help a small White County town with its animal shelter. 

Throughout the week Arkansans Assisting Homeless Animals has gotten together to help out the city with its kennel. 

It's hoping to get all the dogs to rescue groups, then off to new homes. 

An army of Arkansans helping the small community of McRae with its shelter. 

Brandy Buie is the director of Arkansans Assisting Homeless Animals. 

The group teamed up with the city to clean up kennels of 9 dogs to give these dogs baths and take pictures. 

All in an effort to find these pups new homes. 

"Our hope is that we will work with the city in a partnership to move these dogs from the City of McRae animal shelter into rescue groups whether it be in Arkansas or throughout the country," Brandy said. 

Rural towns may have limited resources and that's where Brandy and her group come in. 

"We love working with communities. Whether it be small communities or big communities. We just want to go out and assist," Brandy said. 

She says so many families or rescue groups have no idea towns like this have small kennels. 

"I didn't know the City of McRae had an animal shelter until it was brought to my attention," she said. 

Arkansans Assisting Homeless Animals is now looking for other rescue groups to take some of these dogs. 

"We want to get these dogs exposure to make sure people out there see them because there's a home for every dog," Brandy said. 

Helping these pups find forever families. 

"We just want to have a positive outlook for these guys," Brand said. 

Arkansans Assisting Homeless Animals hope to find rescue groups for all the dogs within the next week.
