The car was car making funny noises on the way to the store. When the owners realized a two-month-old Chinese Shar-Pei puppy was stuck in the engine, they called Arizona Humane Society’s Emergency Animal Medical Technicians.
But she was not out of the woods. She was covered in oil, wounds and burns to her belly. The EAMTs rushed Scarlet to AHS’ Second Chance Animal Hospital, where she has since undergone extensive treatment and surgery to help her heal from her wounds.
Currently, Scarlet is in AHS’ foster care program, where she will most likely spend another two weeks before being put up for adoption.
Participants in Arizona Humane Society’s new Project 121: Action for Animals will have the opportunity to follow Scarlet’s story until she has her happy ending.
The program honors the 121 animals (on average) that enter AHS doors every day. The six-week campaign launches Saturday, July 16 and culminates in a live, 121-minute telethon on Aug. 27.
You can support the work of AHS by shopping at any AJ’s Fine Foods from July 16 through Aug. 27 and making a donation at checkout to the faces of Project 121.
