Alice said this in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: “It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.” For this Alice, a two-and-a-half-year-old Lab mix, things just weren’t making sense–and they seemed to be falling apart. She arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 22nd with her nine very young pups. One by one, each of them passed away, even though shelter volunteers did everything they could to help. Alone and without a place to call home, Alice was depressed in the shelter. To top it all off, Alice was heartworm positive, which would make her chances of being saved that much smaller.
