HugABull Advocacy and Rescue Society is an important partner to shelters across BC, pulling pit bull type dogs and placing them into foster homes until they find their forever homes.
Perhaps one of the most misunderstood and mistreated dogs, it is not uncommon for pit bull type dogs to end up in an already overburdened shelter system at no fault of their own. The shelter is no place for any dog, but pit bull type dogs, in particular, do not fair well at all in shelters, so HugABull receives many requests from shelters to assess and pull dogs so they can increase their likelihood of finding an appropriate home.
In December, HugABull pulled Millie from the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS) . Millie was in poor physical health, but passed her temperament test with flying colours and everyone knew she would thrive in a loving foster home. Much to their surprise, two weeks later, a pre-spay check up showed that Millie was pregnant, with only weeks away from giving birth and on January 14, she gave birth to 12 puppies!
As a responsible rescue, HugABull will not adopt out a dog until they have been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated. And they are now tasked with doing this 12 (13 including Millie) times! It is exactly for situations like this that our Guardian Angle Fund is for and we are so pleased to be in a position to provide a grant that will help out this litter of adorable puppies.
And what a relief. Thanks to the caring folks at LAPS and the dedicated volunteers at HugABull 13 pit pull type dogs get the best chance at a wonderful life.
