Puppy overlooked in meth lab raid and found 3-4 days later barely hanging on

In all the chaos of a raid on a methamphetamine lab in Pickens County, SC last week, a 5-week old blue pit bull puppy was overlooked, and left without food or warmth for 3-4 days, according to a post made today on Facebook by Kelley Blair, director of Upstate Animal Rescue, which has taken responsibility for the puppy.

Fortunately for Baby Blue, the name the rescue has given the puppy, a neighbor heard her crying and went to investigate.

The puppy was rushed to the vet clinic at Banfield, where she has been undergoing treatment, although things are still touch and go for Baby Blue. She has tested negative for parvo, which is definitely a plus in her favor. At this point they suspect that her condition was caused by hypothermia and lack of food and water for days. It is unclear what if any role the methamphetamine in her environment contributed to her illness.

Unfortunately, Baby Blue has taken a turn for the worse. Blair said "During the night she quit taking in water or food, her body temperature is non readable, and blood sugar is very low."

"This is a scary world we live in to have superior humans abandon a helpless animal to die a horrible death," said Blair, clearly shaken by the cruelty inflicted on the puppy.

Upstate Animal Rescue is accepting donations to help cover the vet bills for Baby Blue via Paypal at All donations are tax deductible.
