ROXY NEEDS CATARACT SURGERY ON HER RIGHT EYE. THIS WILL ALLOW HER TO SEE AGAIN AND MAKE HER MORE ADOPTABLE. SHE IS ONLY 3 YEARS OLD
Any breed of dog can be vicious. Unfortunately Pit Bulls get a bad rap because the media sensationalizes the breed. We work with all breeds and have come to know never to generalize a breed. One of our adopters sent us this photo which speaks volumes. Please do not discriminate or put all Pit Bulls in one category. Just like people, some good/some bad.
UPDATE: Lilli is doing great. Her surgery was a complete success and has completely heeled. She is staying with Kelly's mom.
Kelly is home and still healing. Kelly will need continued therapy because of the traumatic brain injury. Her spirits are a little low right now because she is very dependent on her caregivers (Kelly was always the caregiver and it is hard for her not to be in that position). Please keep Kelly in your prayers. Unfortunately she is not able to care for Lilli, which breaks her heart but she knows she is in good hands with her mother.
I would like to thank everyone that contributed to Lilli's Vet Bill. It was truly amazing to see so much support. This is the second time we had a fundraiser for one of our injured animals and we cannot believe how much support we received. We operate solely on adoption fees and it is sometimes difficult to come up with the vetting bills for injured animals. This was so tragic for Kelly and her family. Kelly just loves Lilli and I am so thankful she never found out what happened to her. Lilli is being fostered by Kelly's mom and is in a quiet environment where she can recoup. She is so terrified from her first abuse situation and then to have this happen terrified her even more and she screams when anyone approaches her, so it was so hard for the vets to work on her. They had to sedate her just to give her xrays. She is on the road to recovery and hopefully Kelly will have the same prognosis after such a devastating injury. Thank you so much for your support.
I would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers (Fosters, volunteers at our adoption events, coordinators helping with fundraising, our facebook and email control, to all the wonderful supporters who have contributed monetarily to our special needs animals). We are so grateful for the help and support we receive to help the animals that really need our help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We could not continue to function without your support.

We always recommend that your adopted dog receive obedience training, sometimes they may require a little more. We have a dog named Sabrina who had many issues with trust and was very afraid of people, dogs, etc., in and out of foster homes and needed special training. My dear friend Jan sponsored her training with a fantastic trainer. Sabrina is a changed dog now and is able to function normally in a family because of Scott Harris. Below is his contact information if you are in need of an excellent trainer. Scott's training facility is in Naperville, IL. Please check out his website below
