Honey was impounded at Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter after she was found wandering the streets. Due to the appalling state of her skin she was released under “Duty of Care” to the wonderful Amanda at LabraDOG Rescue and Rehoming. Amanda and her rescue team put a lot of effort into treating Honey’s skin and, just as she was responding to treatment, Amanda was advised that Honey’s owners had come forward and asked Hawkesbury Shelter to return Honey to them.
Fortunately LabraDOG Rescue and AWL NSW have a very good relationship and have worked together many times to rehome Labradors in the past. Amanda called our Inspectorate team and our Inspector Ian visited Hawkesbury Shelter to examine Honey to determine whether there may have been breaches of the NSW Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (POCTAA) given the state of her skin. Based on his examination of her extremely poor condition, Inspector Ian did exercise his powers under POCTAA and seized Honey, at which time she was taken to our Kemps Creek Vet Clinic for diagnostic work and treatment. Honey was then returned to Amanda at LabraDOG for her to be fostered on behalf of AWL while discussions took place with Honey’s former owners.
After negotiating Honey’s surrender to AWL by her former owners, Honey is now officially a LabraDOG Rescue resident, where she will receive TLC and treatment from Amanda and her pack until she is ultimately recovered and ready to be rehomed.
From the photos you can see the progress Honey has made under Amanda’s watchful eye and the protective guidance of Amanda’s other rescue Labs.
We wish Honey and her new foster family the very best and all our fingers and paws are crossed for her physical and emotional recovery. For more about LabraDOG rescue click here
