Why is Wilbur so sad?
He feels bad because not all pitties are loved as much as he is.
Far too many of them are being thrown away like garbage and usually after being starved, beaten, and sometimes even shot.
I read a lot of blogs written by owners of rescued pit bulls and their stories are unbelievable. The amazing thing is though, that these dogs who were treated so cruelly by so called human beings are still full of love and affection. One dog in particular that I read about was found in a dumpster. She was grossly underweight and had open sores all over her but when a policeman opened up the lid and discovered her, she wagged her tail. She's now in foster care and well on her way to getting a forever home with loving owners.
Another pit bull was tossed into a mall parking lot in Texas during last summers heat. She had almost no hair due to mange and was lying there on the scorching pavement in 110 degree temperatures until someone found her and took her to the vet. She was also starving and suffered from heart worms, mange, a destroyed eye, and then they discovered she was pregnant. She has had a long and painful recovery but she gave birth to a litter of beautiful pups who've all been placed in homes. Recently during her heart worm treatment the vets discovered she'd been shot in her rear end. Through all of this she has remained very sweet and loving and we all hope the rest of her time on this earth will be fear and pain free.
Anyway the cost for the treatment for these dogs can be very high as we all know. Some vets are kind enough to offer a discount which helps but it's still expensive.
The latest pit bull who needs help is named Shy. You can read about her here and here.
Shy has been living at a vet clinic for quite some time and they think she may even have a future home but she still needs cataract surgery as she's going blind.
If anyone would like to make a donation I tried to add a chip in button to this post (If I failed, you can find it at Two Pitties blog). Any amount will be very much appreciated and if you have paypal it's a breeze. Just a couple of bucks is all it takes.
Let's put a smile like this back on Wilbur's face!!!
