After hearing some stories from other locals about the strict assessment tests and euthanasia rates for pit bulls at PHS, he went back to the facility and got the puppy. He was told by PHS if the puppy did not pass their battery of assessment tests, the puppy could be euthanized.
Several articles have been written about Peninsula Humane Society regarding pit bull euthanasia practices. Reunion stepped up for this puppy and we are now trying to raise donations to take care of his vetting and neutering so he can enter our foster program.
The young man agreed to keep him overnight while Reunion Rescue networks for a foster home and makes arrangements for his neuter surgery. Please share this one's story and consider a small donation to help us care for him.
As soon as this one seemed to have a plan in place, we got another late night call. A gentleman in San Francisco telephoned asking for help. He's been left with an abandoned pit bull puppy. He was getting ready to take the puppy thought to be about four months old to San Francisco Animal Care and Control. SFACC has a longstanding career of euthanizing pit bulls.
Reunion Rescue has spent years trying to save pit bulls from this facility after having been banned in 2003. We have been able to save many like Allie, Faris, Buddy, Wylie, Maddie, Slappy, Ollie and tons of others scheduled to die at SFACC, but need help. Every dog we've saved before the ban was taken from SFACC death row and about to be euthanized.
Since Reunion Rescue's 2003 ban, we've had to rely on the help of finders and private citizens to save the lives of San Francisco dogs condemned to die at SFACC. Reunion Rescue depends solely on private donations to save lives. We need your support to continue this work.
Please share these two puppies' stories and consider a donation to help us save them and so many others.
Visit http:www.reunionrescue.com and click the donate button. We need funding to vet and neuter these puppies so they can join us in our San Francisco Strut Your Mutt event Saturday the 21st on Treasure Island.
Please join the puppies and Reunion Rescue in our walk for homeless pets everywhere. You can create a virtual walk for only $10 to help these and other dogs should you and your pet not be able to attend.
