Last week I was over the moon when one of our member Patriots and his family adopted a four year-old dog who was abused and neglected by his previous owner. Just two short days later, Davey took off into the woods near Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. We need to help this family bring Davey home safe and sound immediately.
Davey is between 60-70 pounds and was last seen wearing a bright green collar with a six foot red leash. Because of his previous abuse, he does not bark and is averse to strangers, though he is not aggressive and has a gentle nature.
Davey has heartworms and is thin as a result of not being properly cared for in his previous life. The veteran who adopted him has been out day and night, tracking him in the woods and in the miles of brush, roads, neighborhood and forest surrounding their home. A small contingent of volunteers has been searching as well, so far to no avail.
Davey’s collar has an ID tag from the Carteret County Humane Society, where he was adopted. He was very well cared for during his time there, so it’s possible – though a long shot – that he’s trying to find his way back to the shelter. Anyone who sees or finds Davey should call his loving owner, Donald, at 910-376-0248, or the Carteret County Humane Society at 252-247-7744.
Let’s help make this a happy Thanksgiving reunion for this military family! Please share this post liberally.
