Day 4: Vicktory


11/16/10 - That's the number of Pit bulls 'saved, being rehabilitated or adopted' from the 51 dogs retrieved from Bad Newz Kennel. The key here is to focus on the positives and show you how many organizations are out there working to help these beautiful dogs. Because as many of us were all wondered when this news broke "What are they going to do to those dogs?". The video below is your answer.

BAD RAP (Bay Area Doglovers Responsible About Pit bulls) and Best Friends Animal Society were largely responsible in saving these dogs and did an amazing job. There is also, Lang Foundation that is committed to saving homeless & abandoned pets and preparing them to be adopted into a loving home. Lang Foundation is also rated number 1 on the Top 10 Charities Worth Watching by Charity Navigator.

My challenge to you on day 4 of my 13 Days to Thanksgiving is to look at these charities along with ASPCA and all other smaller adopt-a-pet organizations first before you rush to find your new loving companion at a for-profit kennel. Because, not counting respectable kennels, this is the best way to stop those 'Puppy Mills' from their existence.
