Suzie was found as a stray in early October, and taken to the Gwinnett County Animal Control shelter in Georgia. This approximately seven-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound was in grave danger at this high-kill shelter. If the space was needed, she was a likely candidate to be euthanized. Kathe Dotson of Companion Animal Rescue League (CARL) in Georgia got the word out about Suzie. On October 19th, the Animal Alliance rescue in New Jersey agreed to take Suzie if CARL could take care of the initial vetting costs.
