Before Amelia had a name, she was just another dog with a number (#2808) at the Gaston County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. And not just any number... her number included a 6/12/12 euthanasia date.

This approximately four-year-old Golden Retriever mix came to the shelter as a stray on June 6th. While any dog that's part Golden Retriever usually has a better chance of getting out of a shelter alive, this girl had some unknown skin problem. That certainly made her a high-risk dog - and the clock was ticking.
