Our Latest Cruelty Case – 14 Dogs and 1 Cat

August 2, 2022
For those of you that follow us regularly you are probably aware that Saving Grace is often called upon in animal cruelty cases. Our most recent one involved 14 dogs and 1 cat.  
The case began three months ago when a neighbor called Sampson County Animal Control and reported a house because of an overwhelming smell. Upon arrival, Animal Control Officers knew they were looking at a case of severe negligence and sprang into action taking these animals into their care and filing a cruelty case. We are beyond grateful to the officers for saving these animals and making sure the owners are held accountable. 
A few of these animals were adopted locally by people in the Sampson County community and 8 dogs came to Saving Grace. 6 of the 8 dogs tested positive for heartworms and will require treatment. While we have several veterinarians who come onsite to do wellness checks, address concerns and provide HW injections, we currently don’t have the funds to complete these treatments. For the past year we have only been able to treat dogs as they’re adopted, due to rising drug costs. 
We are in desperate need for donors to help us offset these escalating costs so we can give these animals the care they deserve.   
What happened to the cat you say? We couldn’t possibly leave the sweet cat, who was abandoned and lived among the chihuahuas like no one would notice. He needed a neuter, vaccines, microchip, and is ready to learn how to be a cat, not a chihuahua. 
This story, which is common to us at Saving Grace, illustrates how it truly takes a village and a lot of caring people with deep resources to turn a devastating situation into a happy ending. Starting with Law Enforcement then transports, foster homes, vets, volunteers to help dogs and an occasional cat make their way to Saving Grace and on their way to a better life. 
If you want to be part of their journey to health and a forever home, please consider donating to Saving Grace. No amount is too small. On behalf of everyone listed above, thank you for always being in our corner and helping these sweet animals who can’t help themselves.   
Thank you to all who have shared their journey with care, love, support and donations.
