Trena Crump comforts her dog Pinkie while it nurses its puppies Tuesday at the Carroll County Animal Shelter. Crump was abandoned by her traveling partner on Interstate 20 last week but found her way to Carrollton. Crump has no family and few friends. With poor weather moving in the Carrollton Police Department stepped in to help her and her dogs. The dogs were given shelter at the Carroll County Animal Shelter where Pinkie gave birth to eight healthy puppies Saturday. Tuesday was the first day Crump was able to visit them. She has found temporary shelter in Carrollton but needs help finding an inexpensive one-bedroom place that will take three dogs, She has a bed and pots, pans and plates for the kitchen. The Carroll County Humane Society is helping out with getting the dogs spayed and neutered and the shelter will help in getting the puppies adopted once they reach 8 weeks in age. If you can help Crump in finding a permanent place to live contact Carrollton police officers Ivey Cataldo, Eddie Le Blanc, Brandon Sheffield or Sgt. Kurt Catudal at 770-834-4451.
