In March 2015, a dog, who’s now named Marshall, was found hog-tied and covered in ticks on the side of a road in Georgia. A family saw him while they were driving down the road and brought him to the Cherokee County Humane Society.
Thankfully, they were able to save his life and successfully rehabilitate him. He had a rough past, but after he was back to health, he went on to do amazing things.
A group of students at Ewing Middle School heard about Marshall’s story and decided to create a project involving him. Named “Project Marshall,” the mission was to teach people how to be a responsible pet owner and to raise awareness about animal abuse. The students made pamphlets, which will be passed out by animal control on calls.
Now other classes are following suit and created brochures on larcenies and burglaries for the sheriff’s office to hand out.
It’s amazing that despite their young age, these kids are inspired by a dog’s story. Marshall is definitely not only an inspiration to these students, but an inspiration to us all! Despite what he’s been through, he’s still a very happy and friendly pup! He is still looking for a home while he remains at Rusty’s Legacy rescue in Marion, North Carolina.
