This week we’re featuring Dolly!
Back in the spring of 2012, a 2-year-old yellow lab was found as a stray, taken into Second Chance, and named Dolly. In screening and processing her adopter’s application, we told them—as we tell all our adopters—that if there ever came a time they couldn’t keep her, they should return her to us. Of course, we didn’t expect her to be returned, but we never want an adopter to dump their pet on the street, abandon them at a shelter, or give them away on Craigslist.
In September of last year, a county shelter contacted us about a dog who had been surrendered, and our name was still on the microchip. Lo and behold, it was our Dolly. We couldn’t believe the condition in which we found her. The family surrendering her wrote on the paperwork that they “could not remember” the last time they had brought her to the vet and reported no health problems. Yet, Dolly was hairless on most of her torso. She had masses and growths that would split open. She had a weepy eye and ear infections. She would need quite a bit of care, including medicated baths several times a week.
Today, our Dolly is a BEAUTIFUL furry love bug! At 10 years old, her eyes and (adorably tiny) ears are clear, and her cysts have been aspirated. She’s a wonderful companion to any human, active or chill; she’s cat-friendly and dog-friendly, too! Learn more about Dolly and apply to adopt at www.SecondChanceNC.org!
