CHARLESTON, SC.....It seems like everyone wants a special pup they are willing to pay for, but when they get hurt, they want the puppy euthanized instead of fixing the problem. I hear this all day long in desperate pleads to help a dog that was hit by a car or has a bowel obstruction from eating a toy they should have never had. The ailments go on and on, and the common factor is too many people want a puppy but do not want the responsibility that comes with Ownership.
LEXINGTON, SC.....Beautiful Lonnie was picked up as a stray in Lexington, SC with her buddy, Burt and taken to Animal Control. They are both beautiful black Labs that someone abandoned. Burt was very shy and did not have any medical issues. He went quickly to a Lab Rescue, but poor Lonnie had a large pendulous mass hanging from her front leg, and no one wanted her.
BENNETTSVILLE, SC...We got a desperate plea from Marlboro County Animal Shelter to help an seven-year-old stray Shepherd Mix that was on Death's Door. He had been picked up after being fed for almost six weeks by someone in the area. The person said he started to swell about a month ago and then decided to call Animal Control.
