Bruno’s story is one of challenges. His biggest challenge was being an American Pit Bull Terrier. He was an adult stray who ended up at the Morgan County Animal Control shelter in West Virginia. With no one interested in Bruno, the shelter warned in mid-January that his time was soon up.
The volunteers with Friends Fur Life Rescue in Morgan County desperately tried to save him. However, they faced challenges all too common to rescue: a lack of fosters and a lack of funds. Without both, they could not help Bruno. RADAR offered to cover Bruno’s initial vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take Bruno. But there were no takers.
With time rapidly running out, in early February a generous Friends Fur Life Rescue donor came forward to cover temporary boarding fees for Bruno. And with that, and knowing that some pending adoptions for their other dogs would soon free up fosters, the rescue agreed to take Bruno!
On February 12th, Bruno had his initial vetting and neutering done. He tested heartworm negative. Kathi Draper from the rescue told us this: “Bruno is a very sweet boy. He does well with other dogs, and loves kids!” To see more photos of Bruno, click here.
RADAR paid all of the $256 cost for Bruno’s initial vetting and neutering.
