How could anyone shoot these beautiful animals?
What is buckshot?
Buckshot is a form of ammunition that is used for big game like deer. If anyone can tell us why a dog would be riddled with buckshot, we welcome the opportunity to learn why this seems to be an epidemic faced by shelter dogs.
Today, we learned that one of our foster dogs Moby (formerly known as Carson from Bladen County) has been shot at 20 times! In the case of Moby and Mystic, they were fortunate enough to not require surgery for removal. These dogs are the only ones where we knew they had been shot. Unfortunately, it is probably more common than we know.
Please spread the word that it is not okay to shoot a dog. It is sad to know that the scars of being shot will always be able to felt in these dogs. Hayden, Mystic, Brody, and Sawyer all found their forever homes. Moby is still available for adoption!
