ETTA JAMES

ETTA JAMES

TARBORO, NC......Usually, a picture is worth a thousand words.   Not in the case of Etta James.  Not only was the picture not accurate, but her story wasn't either.   The original story from SPCA Alliance of NC was a desperate plea to help a 10-month-old stray mixed breed puppy.   The original text said she needed emergency surgery.  A tumor/growth was found outside her kidney when she was spayed.

Little Boy (Hound)

Little Boy (Hound)

ANDERSON, SC.....We were sent a desperate plea for help with an older Hound Mix.  The Family had contacted Anderson County PAWS when it was determined the Owner had to be placed in a Nursing Home.   Neither Mother nor Grand-daughter had a place to keep Little Boy.   He had lived with his Owner since a baby, and now Little Boy had a medical emergency.

COBY (Lab Mix)

COBY (Lab Mix)

GREENVILLE, SC.....Sweet Coby was picked up by Animal Control after being hit by a car.  This sweet five-year-old Lab Mix with short, stocky legs was struck so hard that his pelvis was crushed. You would think everyone would be jumping to help this beautiful pup with the most soulful eyes, but that was not the case.

HANNAH (Retriever Mix)

DALLAS, NC...The World has turned on its head and does not appear to be righting itself any time soon.   Every day, I am discouraged by Humans and Humbled by Animals.  Dogs play, smile, laugh at us, and are forever our constant Companions that never leave our side.   If we were hurt, they would NEVER abandon us.   If there was ever a time to hold your pups close, well, the last three month has been it.

CASH (Beagle / Lab Mix)

ANDERSON, SC.....It seems the World has turned upside down, and it keeps spinning.  Where we will land when it stops spinning depends on each of us.    We can choose to isolate and close our eyes, or we can open them more fully to see all the suffering around us.   The pain is not new; we have been forced to slow down and see it in slow-motion. Unfortunately, some people are still walking around with blinders on to the World around them.  They choose not to see what is right in front of them unless it benefits them.

I hope this note finds everyone safe and healthy.  With the Coronavirus spreading so rapidly, we are each in dire need of Love and Support during this difficult time.  The Coronavirus is causing a lot of Families to abandon their Family pets for lack of funds and food.  We are doing our best to help any way we can to prevent these pups from being abandoned or abused.

FLOSSIE & FREDDIE

GREENVILLE, SC.......We went contacted about a young two-year-old Lab and Great Pyrenees Mix that had been picked up by Animal Control.  The A/C Officers had been called out on a Field Call to check out a dog that had been severely neglected.  When the officers arrived, they found Flossie with old infected wounds and a broken radius and ulna.   Her leg was swollen three times its normal size.

MARGE (Pittie)

GREENWOOD, SC.......If you want to know what happens to a 4-month-old puppy that is dipped in burnt motor oil, well, these are the good pictures. This poor baby was dropped off at Greenwood Humane Society, covered with motor oil and terribly sick.  Her ears were full of gunk that had been poured in and left. The Owners said she had Demodex, and they had heard burnt motor oil was the cure.  That is an Old Wives Tale that has killed hundreds of puppies.
