Woman Gets Warner Robins Dog Ordinance Waived | News
A Warner Robins woman is going to great lengths for a non-profit organization that helps critically injured dogs.
"We pulled this one out of the pound yesterday," says Regenia Brabham.
Brabham and her group Critical Care for Animal Angels has one mission to take in critically injured dogs, treat and foster them until they're ready for adoption.
"This is Leilah. She's the sweetest girl. We pulled her out of the Macon pound with a bullet in her leg. They were fixing to euthanize her," says Brabham.
She explains how fostering helps them get to know the animals so they can find them compatible homes.
But there was a problem the city of Warner Robins only allows a maximum of three dogs in each home.
"We've got dogs that have been shot, run over, used for dog bait. Sometimes, they have to stay somewhere longer, and since we're foster-based, they all need a home to go to," says Brabham.
So she asked council to waive the rule for her.
"She had to go to city hall and fill out a waiver form, which is a $25 fee, and we had to post a sign in her front yard fifteen days before the council meeting," explains officer Greg Langston with the city's animal control.
Now she can hold up to six dogs at one time.
"This allows me to bring in dogs to foster while they're getting better until they can go to another foster or until they get adopted."
She works closely with Southwood Animal Hospital to help treat animals like Snickers.
She hopes once he heals, he'll be adopted.
