Very Sad: Rescuer Dies, Dog Escapes - Ohio
« on: May 12, 2008, 12:46:24 pm »
Dear Fellow Rescuers and Animal Lovers,
Monday evening, Christi Novicki, a fellow rescuer was in a tragic car accident, and was killed. At the time of the accident she was with her faithful companion "Shiloh" a Shepherd mix that she had rescued and adopted several years ago. As help arrived on the scene, they were unbuckling Shiloh from her safety harness, and frighten and confused, she escaped.

Christi was a bubbly, compassionate and caring person who helped many different rescue groups by pulling and transporting dogs from the pounds to the safety of a rescue or foster home. She was always ready and willing to help a dog in need. At the young age of only twenty-one she had already helped and saved more animals than many people have in a lifetime. Her own dog Shiloh was rescued from an abusive and neglect situation, and through her devotion and
patience she showed Shiloh what love was all about. Shiloh was a constant companion and shadow with Christi, and only when Christi was at work or school were the two of them ever apart.

Shiloh is still missing, lost in the confusion and probably frightened and looking for her beloved owner and friend. The accident happened on Monday, May 5 at St. Rt. 193 near Cauldwater Sunk Rd. in Trumbull County, Ohio. Shiloh is a shepherd mix about 40 pounds. She is golden tan in color, with a black nose and muzzle. She was just clipped for the summer, so her body is shaved and her head, tail and legs all have long fur, so she is very easy to recognize. She is wearing a purple collar with tags and she is micro-chipped. We do not know if she is injured. She is shy towards men.

*If you see her or can catch her arrangements have been made with All Creatures Animals Hospital for her care:
330- 847- 7205, or you can contact the Trumbull County Dog Kennel at: 330- 675- 2787.

You can also email: GSPRESCUE111@aol.com (at aol.com) with any information. Shiloh has been sighted, and help is needed to help catch her and get her to safety. Christi helped so many dogs, please lets try to help find her Shiloh.

Shiloh has been retreived thanks to a live trap, some dirty laundry, a gruel of all things tastey to dogs, and a foxy team of dog people. She was returned to Christi's mom and was scheduled for a complete check up at the vets today.
