STORIES OF OUR RESCUES

 

Our years working in animal rescue gives us a personal view on what it's like to truly save a life. Pregnant mothers, abandoned puppies, devastating abuse. Every animal that comes in our door has a story worth sharing.

Bandit

April 2008

In April 2008, animal cruelty investigators from Fayette County Animal Rescue went to investigate a complaint that over a dozen horses were not being cared for properly. We found the remains of several dead horses and 17 horses were seized.

Kojak

June 2013

In June 2013 we received a call from a woman in distress. A dog had shown up on her back porch and was covered in ticks from head to toe, he was severely emaciated, and his back right foot had been severed and was a bloody, oozing mess.

Kele

November 2012

Kele was laying down eating trash near a dead dog that had been stuffed into a plastic bag. Kele was one of the most emaciated dogs we have ever rescued. He only weighed about 22 lbs. and his normal weight should have been around 40 lbs. He could barely walk, and when he was lying down he could hardly hold up his head. 

Melody

April 22, 2013

Melody & Conner were seized in an animal cruelty investigation when we received a call regarding two dogs that did not have food or water. Upon our arrival we found two dogs in life threatening conditions, chained to posts, with no food, no running water on the property and no shade from the 90 degree heat. Melody weighed just 30 lbs., a Body Condition Score of 1 out of 5. She was anemic, wobbled when she stood, heartworm positive, had internal parasites, and a very bad infestation of fleas. 

Scuba (Aspen)

August 2017

Scuba was found on the side of the road when she was only 4 months old with a bad case of mange. She was extremely friendly and energetic and we just knew she would make a wonderful pet. And she has! Read this first hand account from Scuba's adopter and angel!
