Faith, Rescued from Cruelty in A Twist of Fate



She had wandered into a trailer park on the bad side of town somewhere in Georgia. She was only looking for a handout and a pat on the head. Instead, she was viciously beaten with a ball-peen hammer and left to die. That was until someone became concerned and took her to the local animal shelter. A veterinarian at the shelter saw something in Faith and decided to try to save her. Through the veterinarian’s efforts, Faith began to show improvement. A foster home was found for her immediately.

In Georgia shelters, dogs are not held for a long period of time, rather, they are euthanized in a gas chamber after only a couple of days. In this foster home, Faith was cared for, waiting for a transport to an animal shelter in the Northeast, where she would adopted. The Associated Humane Societies is a participating shelter, taking in dogs saved from Georgia’s gas chambers. We have been saving numerous dogs over the years through this effort.

Faith was placed on a transport in mid-August. As fate would have it, through a paperwork mix up, she was still on board when the transport arrived at its last stop—Popcorn Park.

The minute our staff saw Faith come off the truck, with her head cocked to one side, we knew she was special. As a result of the brutal attack, Faith has a dent in her skull. The sight in her right eye is compromised. She has permanent brain damage resulting in a balance problem. Just call her name, and she comes running and wants to hug. For all she’s been through, it is amazing that she still has "Faith" in mankind.

Faith needs a very special and understanding home as the result of her experience. If interested, please contact us inquiring about Faith, File# L-15207-F.
