UPDATE: I am begging that ANYONE who crossposted the original message (below) also crosspost this update. It ended up on Facebook and oftentimes those postings are NOT updated. Animal Control was inundated with calls and asked me to help as she is both inexperienced with pit bulls AND placing dogs. I put my contact information out there, but her phone has not stopped ringing. Being at work today without access to my contact list, I was limited in what I myself could do. My phone too rang quite a bit.

What has been accomplished is that there is a pit bull rescue in PA who has offered to put this dog into boarding until either a foster or RESCUE can be found. I have arranged with another concerned animal lover, transport to said rescue. He should be picked up tomorrow. I have put all 3 people into contact with one another. I am asking that should a foster for the rescue who stepped up NOT be found, those that have expressed interest follow this story and still HELP if they need it with fostering etc. He is a young and incredibly nice-looking dog and that I’m sure that contributed to the interest in this story.

A LOT of individuals have contacted both AC and myself, but please understand that a rescue backing this dog is what is needed. He is NOT neutered, nor fully temperament tested. We simply cannot release him to anyone who calls “wanting to adopt him.” With the dogs I have here already, I simply cannot provide this lifetime commitment at this time.

I am praying that both a life got saved in this endeavor AND some attention has been brought to Berwick and Columbia County’s issue of dealing with strays. There is NOWHERE for them to go. No one even picks up cats – call the Danville SPCA and tell them you found a cat. They will tell you there is a 14 month waiting list and to take it home, let it loose, and “not to feed it.” Dogs (if one of the 2 runs, in a public place where anyone can approach, with dirt flooring spreading disease from previous inhabitants, is open) they get some time. If not? Then what? There is nowhere for them. I’ve been petitioned for a shelter and told it wasn’t necessary (by Columbia County Commissioners). That is because our previous ACO had a lot of contacts, a FARM, and was able to buy them some more time. We don’t have that now. And it shouldn’t be placed on one person anyway.

Thank you, and please do spread this update far and wide.

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
