I know, I know I have been MIA for some time now…

Well gang this has been a crazy year, I have completed my dog training coarse, and I am now certified. I am finishing odd another coarse now so that’s why I haven’t been as devoted here.

Last week I got word that a fellow rescuer friend of mine has fallen on hard times, she did a wonderful YouTube video a few years back that I would love to re share now:

Pit bulls – you can be a voice for the voiceless

I am sending out an urgent call to arms on Kym’s behalf, she lost her job a while back and has now lost her home, the home she shares with her two rescued pit bulls Max and Sam, who have a Facebook page Max and Sam we are emma shay’s legacy (https://www.facebook.com/weareemmashayslegacy?fref=ts)  if you want to show them some love.

Kym has worked tirelessly over the years for pit bulls, fighting BSL, and working in rescue, she has given of herself so freely and with an open heart, I have set up a fund-raiser for her in hopes she can secure a new home and to  get set up. Any left over money will go to rescue, shelter aid and care, because that’s Kym, she’s always thinking about ways to pay it forward!  Watching her go through this has been very hard, seeing bad things happen to good people really angers me!

The fund-raiser can be found here:

Helping a rescuer keep her pit bull family together

My sincere wish is to help a wonderful lady, a bank account specifically for her fund-raiser will be opened on Monday and I will update that for those who wish to verify where their donations are going.

Please any fellow rescuers, pit bull owners, advocates, please share the links so we can get help for Kym and her crew as we can, and please if you can donate!

Thank you everyone for hanging in there while I completed my training, thanks for sharing my posts and for standing up for pit bulls and abused and neglected dogs everywhere!

PACT for animals, and Beyond The Myth what a great group of people working to save our dogs!

I just wanted to take a moment to introduce some of you to Pact For Animals, this is a wonderful organization focused on ending breed discrimination, for education, and now foster programs for military personnel who would otherwise have to surrender their pets while serving overseas. So please check out there website, share it with friends and if you can help them out with fostering please do so!

I have spoken with Buzz and his team directly and they are all such passionate and dedicated people. Buzz also has helped produce Beyond The Myth for those of you not familiar with it, Beyond The Myth is a film that focuses on breed discrimination, and the pit bull perception, or misconception as is so often the case.

Their websites also offer many valuable resources to Pit Bull/bully owners and advocates. please check them both out today and share their websites with friends.

It’s great to see so many people not just in one country but now, around the globe now willing to not only help these dogs, but also to educate themselves on the various breeds under the “pit bull” umbrella, and see them for what they are.

We are no longer the little engine that could folks, we are making changes that will last a lifetime! As long as we do our part to make sure that our dogs are the best possible ambassadors, and members of the community as well, we will succeed in seeing the end of BSL and bully bias.

I’d personally like to thank Buzz Miller and his wonderful team for creating such a wonderful organization, and doing all they can to help educate the public and tear down the walls of fear the media has built up around our dogs, so thanks Buzz and great work!

As for all the wonderful and dedicated people behind, and in front of the cameras and website at Beyond The Myth Thank you all very much for everything you do! Each person that takes a stand and speaks out against BSL and breed bias is changing the fate of these dogs for the better, and hopefully for a long time to come!
