Friends & supporters, we got to once again see the horrors that innocent #animals have to face, even in our community. We hate to share these stories, but the truth is we see things like this way too often and need help to save them and hopefully spread #awareness so we don't have to see it as often.
Meet China. This little, tiny doll was found left for dead after being strangled and hung on a fence with a cable in an alley way here in #Fortsmith. Luckily a family had found her & brought her to us. Very quickly we noticed she had swelling right side of her body & had trouble breathing, so we rushed her to our offsite vet clinic.
As of now, we believe that she was beaten before being left for dead hanging from a fence. We are looking for any information regarding who her owners are or who is responsible for hurting this precious baby. If you have seen or know anything about her or this situation please contact animal control @ 479-709-5100. or contact our director, Joe Sprague via 479-783-4395 or [email protected]
She is currently fighting for her life at our offsite vet clinic & will receive around the clock care. As we all know vet expenses are not cheap and she has a long way to go, so any donations towards her medical care would be greatly appreciated. We need your help to save her life and the countless others that come in with urgent medical needs!
Please share so we can try to find justice for sweet China and raise the funds needed to give her the medical treatment she needs!

From the Good Guy Files: When Ft. Smith (AR) Corporal Travis Watkins met Jamarrion Franklin at Howard Elementary School a few months ago, they quickly became friends. They had a lot in common. Jamarrion aspires to be an officer and Cpl. Watkins happens to be a K-9 Officer. Corporal Watkins regularly visits Howard Elementary and Jamarrion is always quick to seek him out and the two always talk about being in law enforcement and specifically a K-9 officer. Jamarrion has sent several pictures and letters to the FSPD K-9 Unit and gives them to Cpl. Watkins to share with the other handlers. Their relationship and bond has grown so much, Cpl. Watkins now refers to Jamarrion as “Officer Jamarrion” when the two see each other. After Cpl. Watkins shared Jamarrion’s pictures and story with the other handlers of the FSPD K-9 Unit, they were quick to decide they had to meet him. On March 8, 2016, the entire FSPD K-9 Unit and their furry partners made a surprise visit to Howard Elementary to introduce themselves to “Officer Jamarrion”. They took the time to show Jamarrion around their cars, equipment and their partners.
Jamarrion did not expect to be named an “Honorary K-9 Officer”. The Fort Smith Police Department announced via their facebook page:
"Please join us in welcoming 'Honorary' K-9 Officer Jamarrion Franklin to the Fort Smith Police Department’s K-9 Unit! Welcome to the family and we are proud to call you brother!" SC: lawofficer.com #communityservice#policek9#protectandserve#gooddeeds#ftsmith#k9#dogsoffreedom

I drove up to Lake Fort Smith State Park last night after work to watch the sunset and take pictures. I got some good ones with the sun setting over the lake and was planning on posting one today. But when I left the condo for work this morning, I opened the door and the sky was pink. I captured this shot, which only lasted for a minute or two, and decided last night’s pictures will have to wait for for another day to post.
