One Year Later...

Last year, we shared a rescue story with you where at least 30 dogs were found tied to trees, posts and cars on a property in West End, NC. Many of the dogs were tangled around trees and other obstructions and couldn’t reach their shelters – which consisted of metal and plastic barrels, paint buckets, trailer tops and the occasional dog house. Some of the dogs were forced to seek shelter under cars or trucks. Most of the dogs had no access to food or water and those who did were forced to drink stagnant water from rusted hubcaps, old pots and pans and tops of coolers.


Knowing the situation was dire, we immediately spoke to the owner of the property and were granted permission to feed and water all the dogs and provide pine chips for bedding. We also provided a hot breakfast and blankets to the owner of the property and his sister.


Realizing he had too many dogs – including several that appeared very ill - and was unable to care for them properly, the owner relinquished several dogs to us over the course of the weekend.


Once arriving at the shelter, most of the dogs were found to be suffering from internal and external parasites and other health issues related to malnutrition and poor hygiene. Some of the dogs required more extensive treatment, including Mattie who tested positive for heartworms.


Thanks to the persistence of concerned neighbors and volunteers, we were able to bring these dogs out of their bleak existence and provide them with a brighter future.


Here are a just a few of their happy endings:


Trooper was found chained to a trailer without adequate shelter. After being rescued, Trooper was adopted by a wonderful woman and Pinehurst. Today, Trooper is loving life and enjoying quality time with his new brother and sister.


Dixie was found chained to a rusted truck and was extremely skittish. We immediately placed her into foster care where she thrived. She fit in so well, her foster parents adopted her. Today, Dixie is enjoying her loving family and especially adores her feline brothers and sisters!


Upon being rescued, Mattie was horribly matted and tested positive for heartworms.

Mattie, renamed Lucy (after the popular Beatles song), was adopted by a wonderful couple and is cherishing all the love and attention she receives everyday!


A special thanks to all of our members whose support helped rescue and care for these sweet dogs and ultimately give them a new life, full of love and attention!
