West Columbia, South Carolina: Emergency Foster is need - he is in bad condition and they are begging for help

Tenderheart... his name says it all... needs your help. Sick and abandoned in a parking lot. Please help us help him. 

*** Update ***
It's 10:15 and still no room for Tenderheart. Several people have talked about fostering but no one has actually come by to select a dog yet. He may have to spend the night in our file room.

Emergency Foster Needed ... We have no room for Tenderheart. This poor dog is in such bad condition that no one will want to foster him, but if someone will step forward to host one of our healthy dogs, we can give Tenderheart their spot. We hate to keep asking, but this dog is so precious and so much in need that we must do all we can to make up for the neglect and ignorance that put him in this condition. Please share this post. With over 90 adult dogs at our facility, we are sure to find at least one that can be fostered to make room.

Meanwhile, Tenderheart is receiving immediate care at our Adoption Center. He is about 7 years old and is suffering from mange, parasites, infections and malnutrition. We will know more after his blood tests and vet exam.

Tenderheart was abandoned this morning in our parking lot. We saw the red 4-door Ford sedan speed off but did not get the license number.

If you are able to foster please call us right away at 803-739-9333 and ask to speak with Kenny or Heather.
