A call from a resident to the Vance County Animal Shelter in Henderson, N.C. reported a desperate, undernourished dog howling in fear as the chain that cruelly tethered her to a fence made it almost impossible for the dog to move or breathe.
When Animal Control arrived, they found the shepherd mix tangled in a chain that weighed twice as much as her gaunt 31 pounds of body weight.
Now named Leah, this gentle dog is in immediate need of a home. Her rescuers report Leah is truly a gentle soul. When someone strokes and pets Leah, she will close her eyes and breathe deeply; as if Leah is savoring each moment of the kind affection and love.
Can we save Leah and give her the home she so deserves?
Please share Leah's story with your friends, family, and co-workers. This beautiful dog deserves a wonderful future.
Please stop by the organization's Facebook page and consider saving a life and welcoming a new friend and family member into your lives. Please don't shop for your next four-legged companion when you can adopt.
The Vance County Animal Shelter can be reached by calling (252) 492-3136.
