First K9 fostered from dog fighting case‏
Wednesday, October 26, 2011

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced today that one of the dogs seized in the recent dog fighting case, has been fostered out.

Sheriff Leon Lott stated that the dog’s new name is “Loki” and is living with a family and making new friends. The Sheriff stated that “Loki” is adapting to his new surroundings, family and their pets – even the family cat has bonded with him.

Sheriff Leon Lott states that the 24 dogs seized (plus the 3 new puppies) have received their shots, heartworm tested, micro chipped, and receiving Iverhart max which protects against heartworm, roundworms and hookworms. The Sheriff added that the Sheriff’s Department continues to work with a large number of individuals and organizations in the care for the dogs and fostering them out (examples: Animal Farm Foundation, Pawmetto Lifeline, The Humane Society).

Sheriff Leon Lott notes that this is a tremendous undertaking and those who wish to assist, may do so by sending checks payable to the Richland County Sheriff’s Foundation, P.O. Box 1182, Columbia, South Carolina, 29202. The funds donated will be used to offset the costs in caring of the dogs and to cover medical expenses along with boarding.

Sheriff Leon Lott stated that we will continue to search for caring homes, and volunteers to foster dogs, until they can be adopted. Sheriff Leon Lott adds that if anyone is interested in assisting with fostering one or more of the dogs may contact Pawmetto Lifeline at 803-622-4748.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
