Recently I read about something that really touched my heart, Harper the pit bull puppy who was deformed, discarded in a trash bag, and literally LOVED back to health.
His rescuer is Erica Daniel of Dolly’s Foundation.
Mission: The purpose of Dolly’s Foundation is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome homeless, neglected, and abused American Pit Bull Terriers and other bully breed dogs. As well as preserve, promote, and bring positive awareness to the breed and the negative stereotype bestowed upon them.
The organization is named after a very special dog. Dolly’s story will break your heart…and make you cheer. She came to a Florida shelter as a stray and eventually was adopted into her forever home. Months later, however, Dolly was returned to the shelter, dirty, frightened and bloody. She had been used as a bait dog in a fighting ring.
The poor sweet girl was so hurt.
Erica Daniel helped heal her wounds and her heart, gave her love and made her a part of her own family. Now Dolly has her Canine Good Citizen award, has her own facebook page, and is an ambassador to her breed.
Dolly’s Foundation is helping dogs everywhere, changing laws, and making a difference. Check out their dogs for adoption, and spread the word. You can also look for events in your area or find out more about education programs.
