PLOVER - Last February, the condition of a pit bull named Darcy helped force a dog kennel seizure by Oneida County Sheriff's deputies, an arrest of their owner, and the stripping of her dog license.

A Rhinelander veterinarian found Darcy was the victim of severe neglect at It Matters to One Animal Rescue in Sugar Camp, and soon after, 38 other dogs were taken from the property.

It took Darcy a year to find a new home while staying at the humane society. But now, Darcy is living happily in Portage County.

"She needs to live a quiet, retired, peaceful life," said Darcy's new owner, Vanessa DeWalt.
