The builders had started working on their construction site since September, and for the last few months, they've been helping to feed Demo. They even built him a makeshift shelter.Demo was living outside in the torrential rain, sometimes having to stand on top of his kennel because the ground was so thick with mud beneath him.
Desperate for love and attention, he would peer up at the construction workers meekishly wagging his tail.And they knew he had to be saved. So on Friday 15th January, he was.Hendersonville's chief of police, Herbert Blake, accompanied by a city councillor and several animal welfare workers, came to the house on Friday morning.
It turns out that the dog's owner is in prison, and his elderly father has struggled to look after him. Thankfully, Demo, now renamed Noah, is safe in the care of the Blue Ridge Humane Society, a no-kill shelter in Hendersonville.He's now surrounded by people who are giving him food, water, and all the cuddles in the earth. He's even starting to make some new friends!
