As everyone’s busy holiday schedules are starting to normalize, we got a couple wonderful Bullies into the studio for our January Rescue of the Month. You might remember this fabulous rescue from our big art show fundraiser last year. Save A Bull “envisions a world where these unjustly maligned dogs share homes with kind, loving, and competent humans, where their honor can be restored and preserved.” They’re dedicated to educating the public on how to properly raise, care for and love American Pit Bull Terriers and other Bull breeds, and they have some great resources to check out on their site. While you’re there, read up on their extensive list of success stories, buy yourself some swag, and maybe even consider being a foster.
They’re currently holding a food drive with UrbAnimal and Solid Gold Northland. For every bag of Solid Gold you purchase at UrbAnimal, Solid Gold will donate either 4 or 8 pounds of food to Save A Bull. AND…. their Turkey Jerky is on sale for $10 and every penny of that $10 you purchase will be donated as well! The drive goes until Saturday, February 11th, when they’ll celebrate with “Puppy Love,” a free Valentine themed fundraiser at the Uptown UrbAnimal store from 11am-3pm. RSVP on their Facebook event, or just show up that day to enjoy a bake sale, kissing booth, cake walk, $25 microchipping, make your own Valentines, and apparently win a date with Save A Bull founder, Tahlia! It should be a great time, so we hope you can make it! (I may even bake something for the sale!)
Now onto the adoptables! Sweet Jim was found as a stray with very recent chemical burns all along his back. (how anyone can do something like that is beyond me) He was adopted into a loving family, but they sadly lost their home and had to give him up. Save A Bull took him in and he’s more than ready to find his new forever family. Also, I think Jim is a fantastic dog name.
Pretty Leela was found locally as a stray. She obviously had some puppies, but they were never found and no one came to claim her. She’s very happy and smiley, and would do great as an only dog, or with a compatible canine friend.
