Arrival Story:
Please help our little 4 year old angel pit bull named Faith. Faith has an extremely sad story. She came into our shelter on March 8th. Two teenagers found her in the middle of a busy intersection crying in pain with an very badly broken leg. She could not walk any longer. They carried her into the shelter for care. Our Animal Control Officer immediately took Faith to an emergency veterinarian clinic and it was found that Faith actually had an old fracture that was never properly taken care of. She also had cigarette burns on her legs and blood on her nose. Faith needs URGENT surgery on her leg. Obviously, her owners never did come in and claim her. Faith's leg needs plates and pinning. This surgery is going to cost a tremendous amount of money. We feel our little Faith is well worth every dime. Even though she has been severely abused and neglected, she is just a joy to be around and is so affectionate and loving. Faith loves to fall asleep in my lap. Faith also is in desperate need of a CARING and LOVING foster home NOW. It is not optimum to keep her at the shelter where someone is not with her 24/7 especially after her surgery is complete. We are looking for monetary donations to help with Faith's surgery and also we are praying for an urgent foster family to help out with Faith. Please contact Susan at 1- 401-823-8851 if you feel you can be of any assistance in caring for Faith. Gratefully yours, Faith and her care takers! 4/14/05: Faith is still a patient at the animal hospial. She is getting stronger by the day and is in good spirits. She needs a permanant home. Please open your heart and home to Faith. 4/29/05 Faith finally came home from a very long stay at the hospital on 4/29/05.She is doing very well and is ready and waiting to go to her forever home. She had major surgery on her leg and was also spayed. Faith is healing quickly. She does not need physical therapy but can only go for short walks for the next 12-14 wks. She is house broken and crate trained. Faith is extremely sweet and smart. She is a fast learner. She also likes kids! Faith is temporarily living with her new 12 year old foster human friend and her mom. Faith is in urgent need of a permanent no other pet home. You see the foster family owns a cat and a dog and faith really should be in a no other pet household at this time. She is not a feline lover at all!!! Please open your heart and home to our little angel Faith.

Please God help Faith heal and find the love and happiness that she deserves. Be sure to visit Faith's rescue coordinator/obedience instructor's website at

Hi Faith:
It was great to see you the other day at the doggie hospital.
You sure looked wonderful!
Don't worry Faith, you know that I will make sure that you find that perfect dream home.
Here is Some info on being a responsible pet owner:

What is Responsible Dog Ownership?
From Krista Mifflin,

Responsible Dog Ownership means being the best owner/caregiver to your dog that you can be. Much more than "food, water, and shelter", Responsible Dog Ownership is the obligation dog owners have to incorporate their dogs into the community, being a good neighbour, and providing for the needs of their dogs, however varied those needs may be.

Responsible Dog Ownership Means:

• Realizing that a pet is for LIFE, and dedicating yourself to the life of your dog

• Putting the effort into proper care of your puppy (proper veterinary care, vaccinations, de-worming, proper feeding)

• Learning all you can about proper feeding, making healthy choices

• Investing in proper health care throughout your dog's life

• Training your dog through gentle means to be a good canine citizen

• Training your dog not be a nuisance, and helping him achieve that goal

• Teaching your children to respect animals and not abuse them through play (this is also Responsible Parenting)

• Obeying the laws set for your protection and the protection of others, even when your dog "doesn't need a leash". By not obeying the laws, you are only ruining it for everyone else

• Not breeding your dog because he is "so cute"

• Coming to terms with the fact that not everybody likes dogs, and asking yourself, what can you do to ensure that your dog is likable, even to them? Practicing the answer

• Doing your part to help the pet overpopulation problem and keeping your intact dog at home and away from other intact animals, or neutering him or her to prevent future health issues

• Teaching other humans how to interact with your dog

• Providing your dog with a family and a home, not just food and shelter. Dogs are very social, and isolation from the family will result in an unhappy, and ultimately, unhealthy dog

• Holding yourself, as the dog owner, liable for whatever damage your dog does, and taking steps to rectify it

In a world where dogs are increasingly seen as "evil" and "vicious", Responsible Dog Ownership is the only thing that will keep Man's Best Friend where he should be: at our sides.

Dear Faith:
I know you are still in a ton of pain from your surgery. I called the vet last night and he said you were still needing extensive sedation for your pain and swelling.
Please know we are all praying for you. Your new foster parents can't wait to see you!
You are very fortunate to have such kind people caring for you.
Katie your new foster parent has extensive knowledge with pitbulls. You know Faith that you shall always be loved and cared for the way you should have been in the first place.
Here is your story: RD=1718&PAG=461&dept_id=74409&rfi=6
Love Susan
