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.
Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue pulled Gemma from the Memphis shelter when she was pregnant. She delivered 13 babies! She also came with worms in her heart, which could have so easily been prevented. Now that her babies are weaned, it’s time to take care of Gemma. We sponsored her heartworm treatments, which cost us $300.
Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue took in the sad and neglected Eclipse. She soon surprised them with two babies. She was so thin they couldn’t even tell she was pregnant. Once her puppies were weaned, the rescue asked us to sponsor her spay surgery, vaccines, heartworm test, and microchip for $90 at Young Williams Animal Center. Yes, PLEASE!!!
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.
Gatlin was pulled from a Georgia shelter by Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue. As with so many dogs in the south, Gatlin had heartworms. HPAN paid for the needed treatment.
Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue takes on a lot of shelter dogs. A staggering number of them have heartworms. Oh, what an ounce of prevention would save! But, alas, we exist to help dogs like Sursis (pronounced Sursey) get well when their owners have let them down. We paid $166 toward Sursis’ heartworm treatments.
Breya was pulled from a high-kill shelter by Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue and, like many others, tested positive for heartworms. The rescue paid for her initial pre-treatment antibiotic regimen and asked if we could cover her treatments. Surprisingly, they were under $150. We were happy to help this sweet girl. Thankfully, better days are in store for her.
Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue took in Whisper, and it was determined she had heartworms. We sponsored the treatments needed to save her life. We so wish people would administer monthly heartworm prevention. It’s so much cheaper and easier on the dogs!
Little Ghost was trapped in the recent floods of Louisiana. In trying to escape and survive, he was hit by a car, which resulted in a severely mangled leg that later required amputation. Drivers passed by while he suffered and was unable to move. Thankfully, a Good Samaritan took him to an ER clinic where his chances of survival were bleak. Enter Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue who heard about Ghost. They immediately formulated a plan to help. Enough funds were raised, including our $200 contribution, to help Ghost and bring him into rescue where he will be pampered and loved for the rest of his life.
