JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

There is an organization in the Jackson metropolitan area which looks out for the welfare of animals in cold times, like we are now experiencing. It is known as Cheshire Abbey. It is an animal rescue group.

Cheshire writes bail bonds for a living, but she spends most of her time caring for animals that are in distress. She showed us some dogs chained up outside in Madison County off of McElroy-Smith Road that will get some of her help the next two cold nights.

"We gave them the houses for the mother and the puppy," said Chrissy Cheshire.

She has been doing this since 2009, but created the animal rescue organization "Cheshire Abbey" in 2011.

When she found four dogs in very poor conditions at Mason Boulevard and Lee, in south Jackson, she went to the door at 274 Mason and asked the owner to give the dogs up, so they could be adopted. He refused, but did move the dogs inside at her request.

"He did not (agree to give them up), but at least they will be inside," said Cheshire. "I am really glad that they are in for the night. it's really cold."

If you know of animals in distress these cold nights, you call Chrissie Cheshire at 601-624-2783.
