There are so many stories in the metro Atlanta area about adoptable animals who are abandoned by their families for a variety of reasons – the family can no longer afford to care for the pet, they are moving to a residence that does not allow pets, the pet develops a behavioral problem that they cannot manage.
Beautiful Violet is one of those abandoned animals – and she has no idea why she no longer has a home. Karen Hirsch, Communications Director for LifeLine Animal Project, provided the following information about Violet:
“If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then the employees of Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) must all be wearing rose tinted glasses, because the employees see beauty in the animals in their care.
Last week, Kerry Moyers-Horton, the manager of placement services at FCAS, noticed something moving in the drainage ditch outside when she got to work. Upon closer inspection, she saw it was a terrified little lab mix that FCAS employees have named ‘Violet.’ Apparently, someone dumped Violet and her sister into the parking lot in the middle of the night. While Kerry was able to pull the frightened dog from the ditch, employees still haven’t been able to catch Violet’s sister.
Kerry took Violet into her office and says she was “super freaked out” during the first hour. But after a while, Violet relaxed in and became very attached to Kerry and a few others who have given her extra attention. Beautiful Violet lies by Kerry’s feet while she works, and is a calm, sweet and very loving little girl. She has a split in her left ear from an old injury (which Kerry says gives her character), is healthy, about one year old, weighs 45 lbs, is heartworm negative and has been vaccinated.
Kerry is hoping that someone will fall in love with Violet and adopt her quickly. ‘I cannot bear the thought of taking her back to the kennel, but she can’t stay in my office either,’ she says. ‘I will personally pay for her spay if someone will take her. I just want to get her adopted.’
Would you like this lovely dog to become your girl? If so, please contact Kerry at firstname.lastname@example.org or (404) 613-9157.”
