There is a saying in animal rescue: one dog at a time. But when law enforcement officers took Lola to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on January 5th they really saved ten dogs. Shortly after arriving at the shelter, Lola delivered nine pups!
Lola is a very friendly and loving two-year-old Pit Bull mix who was seized when her owner was arrested for animal cruelty. Her life as the breeder dog, producing a cash crop for a man who sold her pups into dog fighting rings for fight dogs or bait dogs, was over at last. Her fractured hips have healed, but the memory of the breeding hitch will last forever.
On February 12th Gretchen Kozen, a Duplin County Animal Shelter animal advocate and shelter liaison with RADAR, asked if we would assist with Lola’s vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. We agreed, and the next day Animal Avengers of North Carolina committed to take Lola and her pups when the court case was closed. Lola had her initial vetting on March 31st. Her pups have been adopted, and Lola is waiting for that one special human to look in her eyes lovingly and ask, “Who’s a good dog?” Click here to view more photos of Lola.
RADAR paid $152 for Lola’s initial vetting and x-ray costs.
