Safe! Update on ‘Mocha’ about to lose her life

Freedom Farm Rescue has found Mocha! She is safe.

“Thank you to all our supporters and all who helped…we are grateful!

Especially Casey Turner who spied her and called us from seeing the flyers we got out first thing this morning. She’s our hero!

A huge thanks to Teresa Tucker who dropped everything and came out to help. She’s amazing!”

And here she is. What a busy morning Mocha has had.


Latest update: Just three hours ago, animal advocate Albina Albiie Chanel updated Mocha’s story. The dog escaped and is currently missing in Charlotte, North Carolina. There is a reward for her return.

Albina Albiie Chanel is feeling heartbroken.

Mocha is missing in Charlotte (NC) . Less than 24 hours after being pulled, she ran away.
Pls keep an eye out. There is a reward for her return.
I’m broken I don’t know what else to say.”

Updated from Monday…

In Salisbury, North Carolina, ‘Mocha’ broke out hearts as she sat in the Rowan County Animal Shelter totally defeated and soon to be euthanized for needed space. It’s not that Mocha was mean, it’s not that the shelter was mean either, however the shelter is overcrowded, and no one came to the dog’s rescue.

On Saturday afternoon, animal advocate and shelter volunteer Albina Albiie Chanel penned an open letter to humans from Mocha:

“Dear humans,

As I sit here on death row totally defeated, I hope my puppies will at least have a better life than I did. I sit here, I am so scared just waiting to be euthanized. You see, I am only a year old. I haven’t had a good life at all. I shake so much in my kennel that people just pass me.”

Mocha’s plight soon went viral and when an animal lover spotted the dog’s photo and it “speaks” to you, there’s hope.

“Such was the case with this broken girl. Jenny saw her picture on Facebook and knew she had to save her by fostering her. She contacted us early this morning and the rest is history…” posted Freedom Farm Rescue on Tuesday morning.

    Does it mean that Mocha will be adopted? I’m following the news on this beautiful girl since a few days. Were you able to find her a family?

      Hopefully when she is ready she can be adopted. For now she’s going to be fostered temporarily until a home can be found.
