Champ - in People magazine
Champ, of Laurens County, is becoming an international celebrity following his rescue from near starvation by Rescue Dogs Rock of NYC. A local woman has been arrested and charged with animal cruelty in this case - it is 1 of 4 animal cruelty cases made against Laurens County people in recent weeks. At 58 pounds, Champ needs to, slowly, double his body weight. People around the world have donated money for his care - but there is much work to be done on behalf of abused animals everywhere. Locally, contact Laurens County Animal Control and the Laurens County Humane Society to find out how you can adopt/help.
