FEATHER (Pitbull)

FEATHER (Pitbull)

ANDERSON, SC...We got an e-mail begging for help with a beautiful one-year-old Pitbull Mix.   She was picked up as a stray and brought to Anderson County P.A.W.S.    When she arrived she had labored breathing and a hole in the side of her body in the upper chest area.  It looked like she had been shot.  The Shelter did an x-ray and was shocked by what they saw.  This fantastic little Pitty that is as innocent as you could imagine was shot at close range with an ARROW through her chest.

RIFF RAFF (Beagle Mix)

HICKORY, NC.......There is broken, and then there is Riff Raff.  This sweet puppy got out of his Family's Home where he was kept in an enclosed area in a Barn and was hit by a car.  The neighbor said she saw him on the side of the road near a ditch when a Truck intentionally went off the road to run over him.

NUGGET (Dachshund Mix)

NUGGET (Dachshund Mix)

DEMOPOLIS, ALABAMA......We have helped a lot of pups from this neck of the woods.  The ones we take on have had a terrible start in Life.  This is where Archer and Brennah came from.    We got a call to help a one-year-old white Dachshund Mix.   We believe Nugget is a Dapple Dachshund Mixed with a Jack Russel.   It appeared someone had thrown him from a car and he was found curled up in the bushes next to the road.

BLANCHE (Poodle)

BLANCHE (Poodle)

FAYETTEVILLE, NC.....We got a desperate plea to help an emaciated 10-year-old poodle on Wednesday from Animal Control at Cumberland County. They were notified of a poodle that appeared to have been abandoned in the backyard of a home.   No food or water was left to help this starving older dog. When the authorities were called, it was immediately reported as a criminal abuse case based on the condition of the older poodle we have named Blanche.

COLETTE (Staffy)

HAW RIVER, NC....Beautiful Colette is a 2-year-old Staffy that was hit by a car and taken to Burlington Animal Control.  Sweet Colette could barely stand and was in terrible pain.  A Vet saw her, and it was determined she had bilateral pelvis fractures.   Since this sweet girl was a stray, she had to be held until her owner had time to come and get her.  No one came, and she waited and waited until her Stray Hold was UP.

BRENNAH (Tiny Lab Mix)

BRENNAH (Tiny Lab Mix)

DEMOPOLIS, ALABAMA.....There are three things I will remember about August 2018, the Heat, tiny dogs being Kicked, and most of the dogs we took in had Life-Threatening HERNIAS. I would like to think that Animal Abuse is down in this Country but sadly, it is not. The Neglect and sheer Anger toward man's Best Friend have gotten entirely out of control.

Olli (BLK / WHITE CHIHUAHUA PUPPY)

Olli (BLK / WHITE CHIHUAHUA PUPPY)

ANDERSON, SC.....It appears kicking puppies has become commonplace with tiny pups.  Adorable Olli is a three-month-old Chihuahua that was picked up as a stray with a massive inguinal hernia and fractured rear leg.    A hernia was half the size of this adorable puppy.   When we got the call for help and saw the pictures, I was not sure if this was a tumor or a hernia.   Olli was too young to have a tumor this large, so my hope was this was a hernia.

CHANCE (Locked Jaw)

CHANCE (Locked Jaw)

MONCKS CORNER, SC......Do you ever have days that you sit back and think what is going on all around you is too bizarre for even a Fiction Novel?  That is how I feel lately.  Every Tale or Story I hear from Owners or Shelters are too sad and heart-breaking to be true.
