BACKGROUND: Suri was a very scared mama, handling life on her own. She was found by the graveyard with her puppy Scout. Animal Control was able to first get Scout. They found 3 other puppies that had passed. One of their attempts to catch Mama ended up catching another pup, Inky. And, FINALLY, Mama and one remaining pup, Gravy, got into a Good Samaritan's car who stopped for them. Because Mama wanted to meet the pup the Good Samaritan had with her, she was able to get them and notify Animal Control. We took them under rescue. Mama and 3 puppies are now safe.
NEEDS: Suri finished nursing her babies and her little ones have found loving homes. Now Suri needs a loving home to show her a safe life that's not on the streets.
HEALTH ISSUES: She is in good health and is ready for stability, security, and love.

ANIMAL RESCUE NC
We are so grateful to our "village" that helps us financially with our medical pups. It seems to be never ending.
We currently have 5 heartworm positive pups. Each pup that is heartworm positive costs an estimated $800—$1,000, depending on the pup's weight, to cure and get back to good health.
Additionally, many of the seniors we have require dental work in order to ease their discomfort. Dental work ranges from $450—$900, depending on the amount of work needed.
We also have a pup, Juliet (not yet posted), who may require an amputation of her front right leg due to, what we've been told by our vet, an old pellet gun injury.
All of the above expenses are solely funded through donations. Without your help, we are unable to continue our mission to help those without a voice. NO amount is too small and we are most grateful to the community that helps us keep doing our work. Should you want to donate, please hit the donate button, below, and we will gratefully accept.
Freedom Bridge Animal Rescue has placed 250+ pups in loving homes over the last 3+ years since we started! There are currently 20 dogs in our foster homes waiting to get healthy, to understand love, and to get socialized and know what it's like to be in a good, forever home.
Our rescue is non-profit and runs solely on donations. We cover all costs before a pup is placed. All dogs get vet checked, microchipped, and spayed or neutered. Almost all come to us with worms. We pay for heartworm injections and all medications, including heartworm and flea & tick prevention. And we provide food to the foster homes. Expenses can be $800 per dog before they are placed in their new home.
Our rescue works with Bladen County Animal Shelter, an hour northwest of Wilmington, where the population is small so there is less chance of pups being adopted. Many of our pups come to us from there when the shelter becomes overcrowded, the dogs are stressed, and they have a limited time left before they must be euthanized. All dogs deserve to find love.
We rely on the generosity of friends and neighbors to donate what you can to allow us to keep rescuing these wonderful dogs in need. We hope you will help us provide to these pups what they are waiting to give to a human: their unconditional love.
