Please Help Goldie

 Goldie
Goldie

Goldie needs our help to raise money for her heartworm treatment, teeth extractions, and cancerous tumor removal!

This sweet gal was found in an abandoned house that was condemned and due to be demolished. Before knocking the place down they checked and found her and several other dogs inside. Animal control picked her and the others up, and she entered the shelter severely underweight at just 45lbs. Her age is estimated at 5 years old and she tested heartworm positive. Her front teeth were all worn down to nothing with the roots exposed, 2 of her canines were broken with roots showing, most likely from eating trash and tearing open canned food.

Luckily we were able to get her teeth removed and during her spay came across some cancerous tumors that had to be removed! She was covered in fleas with a skin infection but after some time in her loving foster home she is doing so much better! Goldie has come a long way but still has a ways to go.

Now that she has had a constant supply of food for a few weeks, we estimate she weighs about 65 pounds. She is house trained, crate trained, and can't wait to get healthy again so she can go off to her forever home!

Please Help our Sweet Tessa

 Tessa
Tessa

This is our sweet Tessa. She is a foster dog with Paws for Life Animal Rescue here in NC. She found herself stuck at the Franklin County Shelter with two siblings left because the owner did not want to care for them anymore. Her kind eyes drew her foster in and even though she was heartworm positive the foster had to take her into her home and get her well.

The goal is to find her a wonderful forever family to match her amazing spirit. Tessa is roughly age 5. We think she is a Brittany mixed with sheltie. She is 55lbs but could stand to drop 10-15!

She is a lazy gal. She loves to lounge on the couch or floor. She is a people dog and wants to please, kiss, and follow you around! She loves dogs and cats alike. She had lived with 2 male dogs in her previous life. She lives with a male and female dog and 3 cats in her foster home.

Can you help us to get her heartworm free so we can get her into her forever home? HW treatment sucks the rescue funds right down (along with the many other medical surgical cases we face). Paws for Life does not shy away from dogs with medical needs because we know we are their best chance at survival. We rely on your donations to save lives as we are 100% non profit / 100% volunteer and 100% foster system based.

IT IS OUR BIRTHDAY!

15 Years Saving Animals in Franklin County 2002-2017

New Rescue Name, New Look, New Website!

 Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday
Thank You For All You Do To Help The Animals!

There was about 5 of us when FCHS became an idea and our goal was to change how people in Franklin County viewed animal welfare. Animal Control was a concrete building at Franklin County landfill, did not even have an Animal Shelter sign, until 1 volunteer paid for the sign out of their own pocket. Our resources were very scarce, so we had a yard sale to raise money for 501 status and found a retired attorney to look over the paperwork for us. We incorporated to a 501c3 in 2002.

Animal Control was under the Board of Health at the time and we faced many obstacles and not much support from the County. We had not yet established our name, so we piggybacked on other rescue groups in Raleigh and attended their adoption events at the Petsmart. It was an uphill battle to make a name for ourselves and to get the community to take us seriously. We even created a D/B/D Paws For Life, in hopes to generate more of a feel good vibe for the organization. The current members attended countless Commissioner meetings as well as BOH meetings to get our voices heard on serious issue in Franklin County.

With very limited funding and resources, most of the cost incurred from rescuing was funded by our small foster base, whom also served as Board of Directors. We did take many of our fosters to the Vet School and allowed vet students to perform the surgeries in order to save on cost. This was dictated by availability of slots (great deal of rescues took this route), so adoption turnover was very slow.

As you can see, this group has come a long way and grown so much.
