Wicks estimates the cost for caring for the animals is over 1000 dollars. She also says that the bests way to help is by proving a donation because the care of the animals is different due to the circumstances.

Wicks and the Sheriff’s Department want to be sure to thank the groups that have already contributed to rescuing the animals.
Special thanks goes out to Ezra Marrow (Ezra Marrow Training), Paula Jobes (Precious Cargo), Bonnie Easley, and Michelle DeCamp.  Each of their forms of expertise assisted in bringing the animals into protective custody.
