The Moore County Animal Shelter is asking for help locating a dog that scaled the shelter fence to escape — and may be headed home to Seven Lakes West.
On Sunday morning, Alma, a six to seven year old Australian Shepherd Mix, climbed over a fence topped with barbed wire, and then climbed over the gate at entrance to the shelter parking lot. Volunteers and staff ran after her down the driveway to NC Highway 15/501, and then searched for her, to no avail.
Alma was turned over to the shelter when her owner, a resident of Seven Lakes West, died.
The shelter staff report that she was despondent and clearly grieving for the loss of her owner.
Because her home was in Seven Lakes West, Animal Center staff believe she could be headed back in the direction of Seven Lakes.
If you find a dog fitting Alma's description, contact The Animal Center at 910-947-2858. They were hoping to place her with a foster family.
