Cash reward offered for information after dog found shot, hog tied
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.
