RIVER (Rottie)

River, River, River ...we have gone around and around with Specialists to figure out what happened to dear River and what we could do about his eye.  Cleaning and medicating his eye was a daily ritual that everyone hated, including River.  He was not very nice about the process and for good reason.

ERNIE (WH Terrier Mix)

ERNIE (WH Terrier Mix)

BEAUFORT, SC......I received a desperate plea with a video yesterday of a six-year-old wire-haired terrier mix abandoned.   Beaufort County Animal Control had been trying to catch this sweet pup for several days and had finally trapped him.  They knew he was in bad shape but was not prepared for how sick he was.  He did not have food or water and lived under a run-down mobile home with kittens that were also caught.

RIVER (Rottie)

RIVER (Rottie)

BEAUFORT, SC......We got a call from Beaufort County about a stray Rottweiller they had picked up.   They had him for a week on stray hold before they contacted us.   He was picked up on River Ave. and was named River.  We were contacted because he looked like someone had bashed in the right side of his head.  His head had a big dent, and his right eye was infected and sunken.

Lola Bean (Pittie)

Lola Bean (Pittie)

BEAUFORT, SC...A Vet contacted us in the Lowcountry of South Carolina that desperately wanted to save a two-month-old puppy.  Lola Bean was brought to the Vet after she had stopped eating and was lethargic.  Most Vets in General Practice cannot save a puppy that needs life support to breathe.  The animal has to be rushed to a Speciality Hospital that has an ER and a Criticalist.

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.
