Fighting for the Bullys Rescue (FFTBR) took in two female pit bulls recently, one pregnant, and one who’d just had babies.
Flower came from a shelter in Mississippi looking like she was about to pop. Shortly after her puppies were born she came down with a terrible fever and became lethargic. After many diagnostics, it was determined that she had a severe case of mastitis. Who wouldn’t after nursing so many pups?! She spent several days at the vet. We contributed $300 to her bill.
Kamari was rescued from Morgan County where someone found her as a stray. She was emaciated and had just delivered puppies when the rescue was notified. They literally drove one hour at midnight to pick up Kamari and her little ones. When it came time for her to be spayed, the vet diagnosed her with a severe case of pyometra, a uterine infection. The only way to clear it was to spay her, but her condition was still poor. She spent several days at the vet. We also contributed $300 to her bill.
Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue (FFTBR) recently rescued Diva from deplorable living conditions in an outside kennel. They also rescued Puff, who had a terrible case of Demodex mange, from a Tennessee shelter. We sponsored spay surgeries, vaccines, heartworm tests, and microchips for these girls to the tune of $170 at the Young Williams Animal Center’s clinic. Both dogs are adoptable through FFTBR.
Neither Macy nor Lion knew what it was to have a good life before being rescued by Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue (FFTBR). Macy had never been vetted and was allowed to have litter upon litter. FFTBR took her and her puppies in. Lion was found wandering the streets emaciated (see before and after photos). The rescue needed to work on his nutrition before anything else could be addressed. Unfortunately, both Macy and Lion tested positive for heartworms. They are both now healthy enough for treatment to the tune of $250-$300 per dog. An ounce of prevention would have been way less expensive, but their lives are worth saving, so we sponsored their treatments and hope they do well and go on to lives the long lives they deserve.
Fighting for the Bullies Rescue (FFTBR) has some pups needing medical care. Sawyer is having skin and ear issues. Pistol has a suspected urinary tract infection. Koji is ready for basic vetting, and Aubrie needs a check-up and heartworm test. All this costs money, so we kicked in $250 of relief directly to their vet account. All these beauties are up for adoption through FFTBR.
