Lexington Animal Control Officer Sam Fritts was responding to an animal welfare check on 4/22/14 were he found 3 puppies and 1 kitten in need of help. All 4 animals were inside of a home with no power, no water (even the toilet water gone) and no one was home. Lexington Police Department Col. Frances Athay and LAC Officer Fritts obtained a seizure warrant and were able to go inside the residence to rescue all 4 animals. They called Ginger’s Fund and brought them immediately into Davidson Animal Hospital to get the medical care they needed.

Samantha:

6 month old Samantha is also underweight and dehydrated. She was curled up with Nigel on her ride to the animal hospital and while they were waiting to be examined. Samantha was very scared of her new surroundings so she was vaccinated, nails clipped, fed, watered, and allowed some relaxing time by herself to get adjusted before further test were done (fecal and blood).
