Sometimes battles are won but the war is lost. Sadly for Foxy, despite the best efforts of so many, that was the case. Foxy was a ten-year-old Shepherd mix. On June 30th, she was surrendered by her owner without any explanation to the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. For four long months Foxy waited for an adopter or rescue. Her age, combined with being heartworm positive, greatly limited Foxy's prospects of getting out of the shelter alive.
