Last of NC Blind Dogs Rescued by AHS



Blind and neglected, Girlie was one of a family of blind dogs plus a litter of pups that were to become thrown off an equally neglected property in North Carolina. The owner was about to be evicted leaving the family of Australian Shepherd type dogs with no future.

Thanks to the internet, it takes only minutes for alerts to circulate regarding needy animals that are about to have their lives ended. We receive numerous alerts daily and we open our doors when possible. We recently received a picture of the blind, downtrodden group of dogs kept in a yard in North Carolina.

We immediately notified Cherie Damron that we would take them. Cherie frequently assists with many animals destined for the gas chambers. In this situation there were 2 blind adult males and a blind adult female nursing 4 pups. Before they were able to send the family to the Society, the four pups found homes …. but unfortunately, Mom had another litter of 3 pups.

All of the animals lived in various pens on the property, none were altered nor had any veterinary care. The dogs needed help, and due to a short deadline, Cherie found homes for the pups and a rescue group for the two males. That left Blind Mom, (also known as “Girlie), needing assistance. She was given an emergency spay as it was discovered she was suffering from pyometra.

The sweet lass was placed with Amy Hudnall, a hard-working rescue person, who volunteered to keep Girlie while she recovered from her operation. Cherie Damron who helped all of the dogs at that location drove her from North Carolina all the way to New Jersey.

Girlie was also found to be heartworm positive and is now in our Medical Department where she has started treatment. The sweet lass waits to start life in a new direction. Won’t you give her a reason to celebrate the coming New Year? File L-15521-SF (Forked River). Please contact us if you would be interested in giving Girlie a wonderful home.

Update: January 2008 - Girlie has been adopted into a loving home!
