FAMILY TAP | Family and Miracles in Love Years — The American Pit Bull Terrier

Long time going we've been following the work of a group in San Francisco. From the staggering straight to the heart and come all ye faithful story of the Oklahoma Dogs — just keep reading down, you'll find it — to the 500 dogs of the Missouri epicenter dog fight bust . And on to the barn raising. That barn will help bust dogs in the future who'll need shelter and love and sunshine and rest. Before they go to rescue and foster and then — home. We decided we had to do something to help that barn raising. And to spread the word. About myths and fiction and facts. And miracles. Lots of miracles. So BAD RAP has a new sister on the East Coast. Family — because yep, Donna is right. Family is more than blood. Even though MANFRED - and other stuff - stopped our roll out from going full tilt we are here. Catherine Coulter who owns 300 East is letting us use her place. She hosted the Obama crew when they were in Charlotte last fall. Now she's helping the Pit Bulls. There's another lady who's helped us a lot who lives in Pineville. But that's another story. Stay tuned. We'll be at 300 East every Saturday. Stop on by. Sphere: Related Content

Dear Old Man

I’m not that old in my heart, but the two-leggeds called me that when I came here, the first day I was not cold at night and the first day I was not hungry. The veterinarian said I am between 8-9 years old. Like many hounds who can’t hunt anymore I was abandoned, so I wandered a very long time in the woods. All the volunteers went to the lady in charge — it is called a rural high-kill facility — and pleaded for my life. They collected $200 so I could be treated for Heartworms. But I have to find someone who will promise to give me a home when my treatment is finished or — well, they told me not to worry about that. Miracles happen every day. If you want to know more about me please contact Samantha. Sphere: Related Content
