2 Senior Dogs Saved from Domestic Violence in Home



When an urgent internet message stated: TWO SENIOR DOGS, ABUSIVE HUSBAND, OWNER IN SAFE HOUSE; DOGS IN DANGER, Society staffers made a contact to help rescue the dogs.

Society staffers waited like expectant parents on Good Friday evening, under cover of secrecy, to rescue two dogs that had been part of a family in South Carolina. The dogs’ owner was a victim of domestic violence and she endured it for a very long time – he had hurt her and hurt her four dogs. As with most domestic abuse, the situation only worsened. When her spouse was briefly incarcerated, she took the opportunity to leave. The landlord of the safe house would allow only two small dogs – and so Chip and Noel were temporarily fostered with a friend. Since the foster home had 9 dogs, there was an immediate need to help these two that she had rescued from a local shelter several years ago.

When we went on the internet to arrange a transport, there were so many wonderful people who volunteered to help. And now here we sit and wait for 90 lb. Noel (above right) and 60 lb. Chip (above). According to their foster home, they are crate trained, housebroken, good on a leash and get along fine with people, dogs and cats.

In the meantime, the husband continues stalking the woman; the house she once owned has gone into foreclosure; and she has given up hope of ever getting 8 year old Noel and 11 year old Chip back into her life.

We will not separate these two – the family has broken up but at least Noel and Chip will have each other. They will have a semblance of stability as the world they once knew has crumbled.

The two dogs are now safe and together on the Animal Haven Farm where they have been placed on the Share-A-Pet program. Please sponsor Chip and Noel today - they would welcome your support.
