Run Free Old Gal! We Will Miss You!

Old Gal was rescued right before Hurricane Florence in September of 2018. In coordination with Eleventh Hour Rescue in Morris County, New Jersey, and A Shelter in rural Bladen County, North Carolina, we were able to pull her from the county kill shelter right before the hurricane and was placed into a foster home.

Sadly, Old Gal was later diagnosed with cancer in her abdomen. Because of her age and the advanced nature of her condition, she would not have survived surgery. However, thanks to our rescue partners and especially her foster Mom Melissa, Old Gal was able to experience living in a forever home during the last year of her life.

To honor Old Gal and help us continue to fund saving more like her, please consider making a donation at
