7/14 - Moved to foster. Ginger is still looking for a rescue or forever home. We pulled her from PKAS a few weeks ago due to what was reported to us as an injury. What actually was going on was she had a previous surgery on one of her hind legs and the surgical pins were still inside! She came into the shelter as a stray so we have no idea when the surgery was but radiographs showed that it was not recent. We had to wait to put her under anesthesia because she was emaciated, but yesterday one of the pins was removed. The other will have to stay as the bone callus is very thick and could do more damage to her leg by removing it. She gets around great, loves people, prefers female dogs vs male, gets along with cats.
7/12: One of the two old pins in Ginger's hind leg was surgically removed today, unfortunately the other can not be removed without causing more damage than just leaving it alone. Ginger will go into foster tomorrow! She is good with people, dogs, and cats! Rescue or a forever home needed!
7/11: Ginger 2-3 yr 50 lb
needs pin removed, thin so surgery was delayed
surgery may be this week
good w dogs & cat, nice dog
6/26: Ginger had an old injury and a prior surgery involving pins in her leg. It's past the time for the pins to be removed. Doc is considering trying the surgery.
6/22: Ginger just got to doc's. Sam says she's friendly, holding up one hind legs and is a medium sized dog but you can see her ribs .
6/21: Rescued from a shelter. Was going to be euthed due to injury. Headed to Doc's. Seems like dislocated hip but we'll need x-rays to tell for sure. Sponsors can send donations via PayPal to ARTBAR.email@example.com

Effective 1/4/2017, ARTBAR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. D onations are tax deductible as permitted by law.
We are located in rural southwestern West Virginia and we seek assistance from rescues and adopters in northeastern states and sponsors nationwide. We are one of several rescues in the southern portion of the state and are always interested in collaborating with other rescues in our area to save lives. Volunteers are needed to foster dogs and drive on transports. The area we service is very rural and most of the animals we take in have lived their lives outdoors, though we do sometimes get surrendered indoor pets. We rescue from shelters, local strays, locally injured animals, and owner surrenders and get them the medical care they need. Donations are the lifeline of our rescue work.
