After being pulled from a shelter where he might not have gotten out, Braun is now safe with Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue. He was found to have heartworms, which come from mosquito bites. Prevention could have kept this from happening, but instead he had to go through treatments to kill the parasites. The treatments are very hard on dogs, especially if the heartworm disease is advanced. The rescue asked us to sponsor Braun’s treatments.
Rhett was surrendered by force, due to animal cruelty, to his shelter and then rescued by Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue. He needed surgery for a cherry eye, as well as vaccines, microchip, and neutering. We paid $300 towards these services.
Wrenn found herself discarded by her owner at an animal shelter. She had not been cared for and tested positive for heartworms. Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue took her into their program immediately. They asked us to sponsor her heartworm treatments, which cost $286. She is recovering in foster care.
Eli and Ronan were pulled from death row in southern shelters where they had been diagnosed with heartworms. Their savior, Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue, asked us to partner with them in making the boys well. We kicked in $300 per dog for the treatment of ridding worms from their sweet hearts.
Binx and Popeye were pulled from rural shelters by Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue. Chances of their exit were slim, considering they both tested positive for heartworms. When the rescue asked us to sponsor their treatment, how could we say no to those sweet faces? Both dogs are recovering in foster care before they will be available for adoption.
Journey was a pregnant stray when she was lucky enough to find Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue. Her vet check revealed heartworms, which is so typical for dogs in the south that are not on prevention. To avoid a sure death, her heartworms had to be treated, but she had her babies first, and they were all adopted. The rescue group reached out to us to sponsor the heartworm treatments, which we were glad to do! Journey’s journey is looking brighter by the day!
Ransom landed in a shelter with little chance of getting out due to his terrible skin condition and the fact he had heartworms. Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue ensured he got out, and we ensured he got the vet care he needed to thrive. Teamwork at its best!
Lucky for “Chucky,” he was pulled from a shelter, where there was little hope for him, by Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue. Chuck had a cherry eye that needed removal, and he needed to be neutered. We sponsored both procedures for the rescue.
Lucky for Monroe, she was spotted along the side of the road by a Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue volunteer. She’d apparently been dumped and left for dead. One of her eyes was damaged from what appeared to be blunt force trauma. The volunteer got her to the vet where it was determined her eye needed to be removed. We covered the enucleation, and Monroe is now recovering in foster care comfort.
Fighting for the Bullys recently pulled Willie Malone from a shelter where his chances of getting out were slim, especially since he has a bad case of heartworms. The rescue asked us to sponsor his treatments, and we were glad to do it. Willie is beginning the long recovery in foster care before he will be adopted into a wonderful home.
