"Camilla" (WSOC)

LINCOLN COUNTY, N.C. — A K-9 rescue organization in Lincoln County is offering a cash reward to find the person who shot and hog tied a dog and left it to die on the side of the road.

According to WSOC, doctors expect Camilla to make a full recovery.

It’s been a tough two weeks for the terrier mix. Rescuers gave her that name because it means “warrior maiden.”

“We chose to name her that because she’s such a fighter. She fought so hard to live,” said Brittany Mabe with Happy Tails Rescue.

Two days after Christmas, Camilla was found in a ditch on the side of Sorrells Baxter Road in Cherryville.

She had been shot in the head and her back legs were tied together.

Camilla was picked up by Animal Control and brought to Maiden Small Animal Veterinary Hospital.

Veterinarians didn’t think she would make it.

But the swelling on her head went down and now, Camilla is set to have surgery to remove her eye that is still damaged from the gunshot.

Everyone is surprised how well she’s recovering.

After surgery, doctors said she’ll be in recovery for a couple weeks. Camilla will be fostered by Happy Tails Rescue Incorporated until she’s ready to be adopted.

Before she’s adopted Camilla will be heart-wormed tested, spayed, and will have all her shots.

Lincoln County Animal Control is investigating.

    This disgusting evil person should burn for doing gods creation like this. It makes me so sick to my stomach to even hear about things like this but even more disgusted knowing that there are cases that aren’t even caught in time. I believe that if anyone owns a dog they should have to register them ASAP and that there should be a welfare check on all. The animal controls life is not that busy that they can’t make sure the domestic animals are being treated well. half of the world don’t have children their animals are their children. I hope the person that did this has nightmares to the point of lost sleep.

    We must stand up for all vulnerable beings. WRITE YOUR ELECTED REPS AND DEMAND A NATIONAL REGISTRY FOR ANIMAL ABUSERS. ACT NOW BEFORE YOU ARE THE VULNERABLE ONE, WONDERING IF ANYONE WILL HELP YOU.

    These shelters put down perfectly healthy dogs by the hundreds. Animals are never wanted when people get them. Oh, they do when they are puppies. I rent houses, I am almost to the belief humans should have to buy an expensive license to determine their sincerity for owning pets and it would help pay for the care of these obviously unwanted animals. As a landlord, I have see it all. Makes me SAD!!!
