Meet Susie, A Beautiful Pup Who Inspired a Law
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Wilson was at Toys & Co. today to introduce us to Donna and her dog Susie. Susie was only eight weeks old when she was severely beaten, burned and left for dead by her former owner. After about 10 terrifying days she was found by a passerby and taken to a nearby animal shelter. When her story went public good Samaritans from all over donated money for her care.
When Donna Lawrence met Susie she immediately fell in love. From their love and Susie's horrific story came the inspiration for books, animal education organizations and most important a new law. On June 16, 2010 North Carolina legislators determined that anyone who tortures, starves, or kills an animal could face jail time. And best of all, Susie's abuser was caught.
Susie and her owner Donna Lawrence are at Toys & Co. today from 9am until 11am. You can meet and get autographs from Donna and a "paw-tograph" from Susie.
