This pretty girl's wish was just granted. Now named 'Minnow,' she scored a safe haven with rescue group A Rotta Love in Minnesota. She's extry special because she's from the group of 'MO bust dogs' that were rounded up in the state of Oklahoma. Oklahoma was more than happy to work with rescue to save the victims of cruelty from this raid - a big sign of progress made!
Minnow has a compelling story that we'll be able to detail shortly. Thanks to many helpers, in a few days all but two of the dogs from that Okie grouping will be out of the shelter and with adopters, foster homes or in compassion holds. Fabulous! (The remaining two dogs were euthanized at the shelter due to animal intolerance issues.)
The Rotta Love gals could use some love themselves for this rescue and rescues coming up. You see, the agencies that orchestrated the MO dog fighting bust are not providing $$ help for the dogs, so rescuers are eating all costs, including pricey transport and any upcoming vet bills. (And no, we are not getting paid to evaluate or coordinate rescue efforts. Bleh.)
Not one to be deterred by obstacles, VP Lara Peterson made the long 22 hour round trip drive from MN by herself to pick this girl up and bring her home. It's a sacrifice we all make in the name of making sure pit bulls are given a seat on the bus as promised ... Necessary, but not easy. And such a big contrast at a time when millions are being tossed at Vick for his new role as reformed gladiator hero.
If you have a few extra bucks this week, please send them to A Rotta Love to help reimburse the high cost of saving lives. They certainly deserve it after going the distance to help a lowly fight bust dog in Oklahoma.
