I’ve been so busy with school lately, I haven’t had any time to blog or read anyone else’s blogs! This one will be short.
I was approached by a friend who sent me a photo of a female Pit Bull who had been sleeping in the snow in Chicago. She was put in Chicago Animal Control because there was no place else to put her. My friend sent me her photo to see who I could contact to find a home for her. There was a very frustrating experience that accompanied several emails that I had sent, but that is another blog and not the important issue here.
What is important is finding this dog a home. If she isn’t picked up by March 11, 2013 she will be put down. I’m trying everything. I’ve posted her photo on Facebook and 7 people have shared that information, I’ve posted her photo on my Tumblr account which I’ve set up for the sole purpose of finding homes for homeless animals (www.tumblr.com/blog/chicagoanimallove if you want to check it out), I’ve posted her photo so many times on Twitter I’ve lost count. I’ve emailed shelters and they can’t do anything without her having a foster.
They even said it is so hard to do with a Pit Bull because everyone believe all of the awful stereotypes about Pits so no one wants to adopt them and would rather let them die. When I told one woman I was trying to find a home for a Pit Bull, she looked at me in disgust and said “Why?!” I told her because they are animals, living creature that deserve just as much love as any other dog. If you raise them to be aggressive, then they will be, but if you love them they will love you back. You can click here to read my blog about Pit Bull Prejudice and click here for the article about Pit Bulls stating they are loving wonderful dogs.
Please, if you can help find a home for this dog, I would be so grateful. I wish I could foster or adopt her myself, however I can’t afford a dog and I’m living with my family and with the health problems of my parents and our combined allergies, we can’t have a dog in the house. If we could, I would have already picker her up.
Please help this dog, please. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can get you foster papers or adoption papers and get you in contact with the American Animal Rescue Society. That is the organization that is trying to find her a home.If you can just foster her for a while, just so they don’t put her down. Post her photo on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, please help us find her a home or a temporary home that will be the stepping stone to her forever family.
Thank you for any help.
