Capicola (AKA Gabagool) came to Southern Pines this past October after being found abandoned on someone's front stoop, drenched in some kind of oily substance and dragging herself around using her front paws. It was clear to us that she had either sustained some type of injury or deformity to her hind legs. Cats with challenges like Capicola typically do not do well in a shelter environment where resources are limited, but thanks to a committed staff and a compassionate community who've donated their time, resources, homes, and love,this little cat is getting the opportunity to rewrite her story...
Capicola is currently in a fantastic foster home where she is being showered with love and attention. However, she's still looking for her forever person. If you think that could be you, or if you're interested in donating toward her care, please contact us at 601-544-6632.
A couple days ago, we had the exciting opportunity to see Jackson & Romey, two of our more long-time residents, leave Southern Pines to begin the next phase of their adoption journey as they travel northward to their new homes and families. Both Jackson and Romey are dogs that came to us from less than ideal situations, and both were a bit caught off guard with the sudden rush of care takers waiting to shower them with attention. Unfortunately both tested heartworm positive when they arrived at Southern Pines. Although, their stories were different, both of these somewhat plain looking, fearful dogs found themselves in the same place, in need of a helping hand.
But for Jackson and Romey, this is not where their stories ended. Because of our life-saving partnership with PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’, these dogs, that had the odds stacked against them, were both able to get healthy hearts and a new start.
