COVINGTON, Ga. -- A stray dog has a wonderful new home after being rescued by students and teachers at Newton College and Career Academy.
Two teachers -- agriculture instructor Marcus Pollard and fashion design instructor Heather Fuller -- and University of Georgia student teacher Kayleigh Plummer spotted three dogs wandering near the school entrance. The faculty members brought the dogs inside to veterinary science teacher Beth Galloway's classroom, where students washed them.
The dogs were then taken to a vet's office, where professionals determined two of them were too injured or ill to save.
"I told the students that they should be happy that the dogs were shown love and care at the end of their lives, because it was apparent that they had been badly mistreated," Galloway said.
