The Pittie Brothers
Buddy: Today's post is a happy one for us because we a couple of dogs have weighed heavily on our minds for the past two weeks. Remember the two pit pups that were abandoned by our neighbors? We posted about them - Luke, Pups & Marcus.
Sam: Jan contacted a rescue coordinator before they arrived at the shelter, but because of circumstances beyond everyone's control, it took nearly a week to get a photo for the rescue list. (Jan couldn't do it. We don't have a car now.)
Merci: Although each got $150 in sponsorship, they didn't have a place to go. And we feared the worst when the shelter opened Tuesday morning after a 3-day weekend.
Buddy: Tuesday night Jan received a facebook message that made her cry. The pittie brothers left the shelter with hope of a better life. Eight dogs were pulled by rescues and we are happy for each one, but the pittie brothers were special to us because Jan knew them personally..
Sam: This morning we had more good news. The pittie brothers and the 6 other pits that left our shelter Tuesday went north to a pittie rescue. They will have a chance at a good life now.
Buddy: We can't thank Connie enough. She worked hard to find a legitimate, thoroughly investigated rescue for the pittie brothers since Jan emailed her the 7th of this month, before Connie even had a photo to send out. She does so much to help rescue animals and she's an expert at finding help for so many that would otherwise die in shelters. And thanks to Gayle and Peggy for the photos and answering Jan's frantic "are they still alive" emails and letting us know the pups are safe.
Merci: The neighbors' other dog, Luke, was sold prior to abandoning these two. The nice lady who bought him loves him but can't keep him. She wanted to protect him. He is currently looking for a good home and he is doing well. He came by for the afternoon Monday and we'll be posting some photos of the canine reunion soon.
