In early March 2012 I received a call from a friend regarding a pit bull chained up in someones yard who had been used as a bait dog for fighting. He was severely injured and was without food or water. To make a long story short, we rescued the dog, I wasn’t going to let him die. I had no idea what to do with him. I took him to the vet and paid for his treatment out of my pocket. I called every rescue I could think of and everyone told me that if I couldn’t foster the dog, they wouldn’t help me. I wasn’t sure if I could foster him at the time since I already had 3 dogs, but I was committed to keeping him at least until he had healed. Change Of Heart was the only rescue that stepped up to help me get a chip-in started to pay for the medical bills, they gave me food, a collar, flea meds, etc. Once I saw what they did for this pup, even knowing that we may not be able to foster him , it showed their true character. They care about the dogs. Plain and simple. We did decide to foster the dog after all and Change Of Heart has been there every step of the way for us. Anything we need, they are a phone call away. I can’t say that about any other rescue, and I called a lot! They deserve all the good karma headed their way, and then some!
