Fostering saves lives

Summer is an adorable baby pit bull, who was abandoned at a local shelter with her litter mates. Summer was in very poor condition and not likely to survive without immediate medical attention.

Pit Crew stepped up and pulled her from the shelter and got her immediate medical attention. Summer had parasites and was malnourished. She had to be hospitalized for a few days, but was released to a foster home. In just three weeks Summer has put on weight and is just like a normal healthy, happy puppy. She is also almost potty trained.

We cannot help dogs like Summer without dedicated foster families. We get requests daily to help at risk and medically complicated bully breeds and we would love to help them all, but we only can help as many dogs as we have foster homes available. We also have to thank all of our wonderful supporters who rallied to help cover Summer's medical expenses (admission to the hospital in emergencies like Summer's can easily cost $300 or more for 24 hours).

If you've ever considered fostering, please send in an application. Fostering is free. We provide medical care, food, and monthly preventatives. All you have to provide is space, love, and work on skills dogs will need in their forever home (like house training, basic training, and manners). If you cannot foster, then we always can use help sharing our dogs either from our website, from Petfinder, or on our Facebook page. Shares help our dogs get seen by potential families.
