Dottie is safe, an update on the Urgent Animals at Fulton County Animal Care Services posted April 22 on their Facebook page.

Sweet Dottie was profiled in this April 16 Examiner article.

Those following her story have been holding their breath throughout the weekend. Word has just come in that Dottie is now safe, having been rescued by Forgotten Paws Rescue in Atlanta, Georgia.

Her time ran out last week, with Friday morning at 9 a.m. being the set time for Dottie to be euthanized. She was an urgent girl that was fortunate enough to get a stay of execution.

As the weekend began, Dottie was to be given a temperament test. It was at this point everyone was left hanging until Tuesday afternoon, when the post went out that Dottie was safe.

Despite receiving 425 shares on Facebook, no one would step up to save save Dottie's life. Her little face sucked in the good people at Forgotten Paws, where she is now part of their rescue family.

If you'd like to foster or adopt Dottie, an application can be found on their website.

You can follow Dottie on the Forgotten Paws Facebook page, as they'll be posting photos showing her progress as she goes from death row inmate to a forever home.
