Happy Tails Dog Club at Robson Ranch Texas

Happy Tails Dog Club at Robson Ranch Texas had the honor of hosting Monica Ailey, president and co-founder of Animal Investigation & Response (AIR), along with volunteer Kim Meloncon recently.

The Importance of AIR

AIR, a 501(c)(3) animal protection organization based in Argyle, Texas, assists law enforcement, animal control agencies, and communities in addressing animal abuse-related issues. Their work spans a wide range, from tackling puppy mills to providing aid in disaster relief efforts. Formed by two certified animal cruelty investigators, AIR serves as a crucial link between agencies and resources, aiding in investigations and providing support beyond the local community’s capacity. Furthermore, their services extend beyond immediate intervention. They educate communities on animal welfare laws, aiding law enforcement in building cases against abusers. Additionally, they run emergency shelters for seized animals and facilitate placement with reputable rescue organizations. Moreover, AIR boasts certified emergency responders capable of operating under national and state protocols during natural disasters. They offer communities resources, manpower, equipment, and veterinary support for emergency sheltering. They also work on reuniting lost animals with their owners.

The Dedication of Volunteers

Members of Happy Tails Dog Club were treated to insights into AIR’s operations through videos showcasing various rescue missions. These included interventions, such as caring for 26 confiscated dogs, assisting in the seizure of over 400 animals from a pet store, and responding to a hoarding situation involving nearly 70 animals. Highlighting the dedication of AIR’s volunteers, Happy Tails emphasized the ongoing need for support and encouraged individuals interested in volunteering to visit AIR’s website, animalinvestigationandresponse.org.
