Barloc's Story

Many of you remember BARLOC - the male dog who came to us with what we thought was severe lumbar spine injuries from being hit by a car. He was in a lot of pain, and he also had a skin infection. 

After thorough examination and imaging by an orthopedic vet, it was determined that Barloc did not require the surgery we had anticipated, but rather rest and time for his fractures to heal on their own. So, Barloc has been in the loving care of one of our wonderful fosters, Melissa. Thanks to her, and our vet partners at Forsyth Animal Hospital, Barloc is feeling MUCH BETTER now!!!

Here is a video of Barloc's story - We want to say THANK YOU to all our supporters for allowing us to achieve happy endings like this one for Barloc - one that will be complete when we find him his perfect Forever Home. Without your help, we cannot achieve our mission of helping those dogs most in need - like Barloc.
