Dog Rescued from Trash Can

April Livingston | November 26th, 2018

A typical day of work for an employee of the Georgia Welcome Center became anything but that when she walked by a trash can. Next to the can was a garbage bag and when she went to pick it up and place it in the garbage can, she heard a yelp. Inside the garbage can was a brown Chihuahua staring back at her. The woman grabbed the frightened dog from the bin and brought the dog inside. She was worried her supervisor would arrive and she would be in trouble, so the woman contacted Hart County Animal Rescue for help. The group arrived to take the frightened dog, who they named Carolina since she was found near the South Carolina border.

Carolina the dog was cold, wet, and hungry, but otherwise in good shape. She was not microchipped and there were no security cameras in the area, so no one knew for certain how she ended up in the trash can. The sweet dog was simply thrown away like trash, and while rescuers wanted answers, they knew they would probably never find them. So, Carolina was taken in by a foster home and she is thriving there. She is staying with Judy Partain and her family, and Carolina has stolen their hearts. She loves to run and play and enjoys spending time with Judy’s three other foster dogs, too. Carolina also enjoys naps and burrowing under the covers to sleep.

Carolina is very outgoing and makes friends with humans and dogs everywhere she goes. Her story has spread across the country as well, and she currently has 80 applications to adopt her pending with Hart County Animal Rescue. Carolina needs to be spayed, but once she heals she will be ready to go to her forever home with a loving family. After all she’s been through, she deserves it!
