Libby

Libby’s Story Sometime in 2013 a lady who lived in Jacksonville had rescued Libby from a bad situation, someone even trimmed her ears without even using any anesthetic. She knew that Cabot prohibited anyone living there to own a pit bull. She took her home anyway. She could not find her a home, so she reluctantly brought her to Chestnut Animal Clinic in Conway to have her euthanized. She did not want to have to go through with it, as Libby was a fantastic dog. The girls at the clinic called me and asked if we could help. Susan found a foster for her right away. It took almost 18 months for her to find a permanent home. We had a few calls but no one adopted her, until Melina called and wanted to meet her. They owned a pit bull who they felt needed a companion. The foster took her to meet them and their pit bull and everyone and their dog bonded right away. Melina has several children and Libby has been a great addition to their family. It is so difficult to place pit bulls, but we were extremely fortunate to find her a good and loving home. The Friends Group paid for all her medical care, food etc. during those 18 months. We so love happy endings. Libby is just where she was meant to be to live a long and happy life with a great family.

Delilah

Delilah was a stray who was not reclaimed by her owner…..this girl was so sweet…found most of the time upside down in her in kennel. She tested very high on her behavior assessment…all A’s…..one little problem….heartworm positive……we felt it would be a shame to let this one slip through the hands of a loving family and the Friends stepped in and covered the entire cost of her heartworm treatment….with help from a great foster family…..she was treated and took the ride of her life on the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin to her forever home.

Koko

Koko was picked up here in Conway after we received a call to check the welfare of the dog. Once the officer got there it was clear she was missing part of her leg. The owner told us she had gotten a wire wrapped around her leg and she was putting antibiotic cream on it…..needless to say……….that was NOT going to work.  The owner was cited and the dog taken to a local vet. Only option we had at this point was euthanasia or amputation….Thanks again to the Friends for the amputation…..she was adopted her locally and still in her forever home.

Chopstick

Chopstick was first reported at large with an injured paw…when we went to pick him up he got away from the officer. About 2 wks later her was reported again with an injured leg…..by this time he had chewed his leg off to almost the shoulder. He didn’t know it because he was the sweetest boy ever….didn’t have a care in the world and so friendly. We thought he was so great we as the Friends to amputate and the board agreed. Since then he has been with us at the shelter and lives in the lobby….I don’t know if he earns his keep but he is a lot of fun with his antics. He can usually be found 2 inches away from your food ON THE BREAK ROOM TABLE while you are eating, lounging in the nature scene acting like he’s one with the other animals or in a basket at the front counter with paperwork piled on top of him.
