Like it often does, Lance White’s phone rang several months ago with a plea from a volunteer of the Humane Society of Forsyth County.The volunteer had seen a dog at a Clayton County shelter whose pelvis was broken after being struck by a car.“She said, ‘Can you please, please take this dog?’ They were going to go ahead and do immediate euthanasia,” recalled White, president of the local organization.And like he often does, White couldn’t say no.With some help from volunteers, he brought the dog, Lancealot, to a vet’s office on a gurney.That was in the spring. This week, Lancealot romped around his pen, waiting for his first chance to find a new home at an upcoming adoption event.“What a difference six months makes,” White said. “Can you believe he had a crushed pelvis?”As an adult dog of nearly 2 years, Lancealot’s adoption fee is $200, like those for all others.
