Today I read about a sad, sad story that hopefully will have a happy ending. Turtle, an innocent little pitbull was found fighting for her life on Sunday in a city nearby terribly beat up. They think she was a 'bait' dog that is part of a Dog Fighting Circle.
For me, I haven't thought about Dog Fighting since the Michael Vick hoopla that came up again recently after he went back to playing Football.
This terrible act still exists, and evenly more shockingly, its a lot close than you think.
Turtle has good people taking care of her at the Animal Rescue League of Boston and she will be undergoing treatment and care for the next 6 months as her bite wounds heel.
So many people commented about this terrible event, but one comment hit me hard. They basically said to put your money where your mouth is. Which made me think. These shelters have so many animals coming in, whether its dog fighting, foreclosures, or cases where their owners just can't handle it anymore. While I would love everyone to be able to adopt a rescue dog.. it'd be such a nice gift to donate to people who are helping these animals now.
Even if you don't have the extra funds since I know everyone is stressed out with the last minute Christmas shopping. Even $10 would make a difference. I hope you can share the wealth and donate to these innocent creatures who are the most loving of things when given a chance.

I just donated $30, in honor of Turtle, the lovable pup hurt this weekend in the Dog Fight. Keeping her in my thoughts and wish I could give her a big gigantic hug. Rocco & Lexie were heartbroken when I told them about dog fighting. They don't get it.
Happy Holidays, to my four legged friends.
