BLUFFTON, SC.....We received an e-mail to us, and several other rescues in the area asking for help with a one-year-old husky found abandoned in a shopping center in Bluffton, SC. I immediately asked for more information to find out if the dog was hurt. The e-mail was sent to lots of rescues that could help dogs that did not have medical issues. I was sure one of them would respond and take this beautiful husky.
Several days passed, and no one had contacted the person who had found the dog.
CHARLESTON, SC.....Every week I rescue abused dogs. I have been doing this for over twenty years. I am rarely shocked but saddened by all the abuse and neglect inflicted on these innocent Souls. We see the injuries and make a plan to fix them. Next comes the emotional wounds that take much longer to heal. Some dogs never fully recover from the emotional abuse they have endured.
GREENVILLE, SC.....Hurricanes and Kennel Cough are a combination, I would not wish on anyone. Sadly, that is precisely what we had to deal with. We were preparing for the Hurricane when I noticed the final notice from Greenville County for a sweet dog they had been posting for the past two weeks. Chocco was a two-year-old pup picked up as a stray. Her medical records said bilateral hip dysplasia and a cruciate ligament tear on the right stifle.
Demi did well with her surgeries without any complications. She was stable during her anesthesia and came out of it quickly. I feel so bad for this precious little Angel. No dog should have to endure this kind of hardship. Demi is so used to being in pain that she never whimpers or complains. She takes it all in stride, which makes everyone sad. This precious girl has not complained once since we have had her.
GREENVILLE, SC....So many of the pups we rescue are wonderful dogs that need to be given a chance to heal and find the perfect home. Ella was one of those amazing dogs that were abandoned without giving her a second thought. Spartanburg, SC, picked up Ella as a stray and brought her to Greenville County Animal Care Services, where she was evaluated. They were calling her Estall, and we changed her name to Ella.
GREENVILLE, SC....For everyone that fell in love with Minnie, our Mini-Aussie, we have another adorable pup that could be her sister. Greenville County Animal Care Services reached out for help with a scared stray pup hit by a car they called Ferry. At first, I thought it was a picture of Minnie. I soon realized it was a different dog in need.
VIDALIA, GA....Peter is an adorable 4-month-old Chihuahua Mix picked up on the side of the road. Peter could not walk because of breaks in the front and rear legs. Animal Control and a local Rescue were contacted to see if anyone could help this poor, broken Angel. Animal Control contacted Peter's owners, and they refused to take responsibility for his medical needs.
