Stop Giving Pit Bulls A Bad Rap

Stop Giving Pit Bulls A Bad Rap!!

 This is Lilly OUR HERO

One late evening in May 2012, a freight train conductor riding in Shirley, Massachusetts saw the silhouette of a person and a dog on the tracks ahead. He radioed for the train to stop, but could tell there wasn’t going to be enough time. Christine Spain had tripped on the tracks while walking her dog, Lilly, and fell unconscious. The conductor saw that the silhouette was moving — Lilly was attempting to pull her immobilized owner off the tracks. As the train passed over the pair, the conductor claims to have felt a thump. When he was able to safely exit the train, he found Spain unscathed; Lilly had covered her owner and took the hit for her. 

While waiting for emergency services, Lilly continued to watch over Spain, though the dog herself was suffering from extreme injuries, including to her front right leg, which had to be amputated in surgery.

 This is Phoebe OUR HERO

A pit bull with a sharp nose was this little cat’s best friend. Around Christmas of 2010, when Phoebe was on her regular morning walk in Troy, New York, she responded to mews she heard from a cardboard ditched among a pile of trash. The box was sealed with tape — there was only a small hole, through which Phoebe stuck her nose, Times Union reports. The pair found a cat trapped inside. 

Once alerted to the box, Phoebe’s owner Melissa called the police. Troy animal control took the small gray cat to the veterinary hospital, where is was treated and officially named “Jack in the Box.” 

This is Stitch OUR HERO

Stitch’s cleft lip and palate has given strength to two children with the same birth defect, reports and KRNV. When the pit was six months old, his foster parent and licensed vet technician Chrissy Boyles put out word to raise money for surgeries to correct the dog’s deformities. Ashlee Rodman, mother to Sam and Lily who were both born with cleft lip and palate, saw the fundraiser and knew the pooch would help her kids through their own surgeries. 

Rodman says the special pit has helped her kids feel special, too. When four-year-old Sam was nervous about his surgeries, he’d look at Stitch’s Facebook page to remember that if Stitch could go through hard stuff, so could he. “I just wanted to show my kids that they are not alone,” Rodman said to KRNV. “It’s not only other humans that have this, cleft lip and palate, but animals have it also.”

These are only the very few examples of our PitBull heroes.  Many thanks to the reporting of Huffington Post and their love of animals that has been on the forefront of bringing animals and their goodness to the public.  Marks Animal Rescue gives great credit to this organization and its love for animals and this article.  For more of our pitbull heroes you can see the rest of this article by clicking on the link below:

How To Become A Animal Rescuer

How to  become a Animal Rescuer

Marks Animal Rescue Inc. a Florida  based 501 c 3 Non-profit Corporation based in Pompano Beach Florida along with its attached programs Marks Animal News Network and Marks Animal Rescue Network which makes available for all age groups an opportunity to become  a real animal rescuer regardless of your location.

We especially want to encourage our youth to become a part of this program.  We feel it will offer our youth many personal benefits as well as saving animals lives.

Having a mission in life shouldn’t be underestimated. Being the voice for millions of animals is a worthy cause, one that you can join today by volunteering to help save our shelter animals who so desperately need our help.

Our youth of today have the technical skills that make them perfect for work in helping rescue animals and at the same time brings stability in their own lives both in terms of physical and mental health.  It aligns our youth with others who together will make great strides in saving animals lives as well as their own.

Our rescue organizations main mission is to work with our county shelters in order to find homes for the animals who have been put there through owner surrender, found as a stray and/or abused.  

Experiences working with our county shelters has enabled us to provide a rescue program that everyone regardless of age with basic computer skills can do from the safety and  comfort of their own home.  Also for those who wish to do more outside the home with their rescue operation would be even better but again not necessary.

The actual rescue program itself as listed in our video ( My declaration of change ) gives you all the steps of doing your own individual rescue without any organization participation..  Marks Animal Rescue makes that available to anyone who wants to use this methodology.

So the question begs If I am able to do that rescue program on my own then  Why would I  volunteer with your organization when I could do the same program as an individual?

Fair question:  My answer as Michael Jordan ( a famous former basketball player ) once quoted: “ Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.”

I would like share with you another quote and this one is by Vince Lombardi ( A famous football coach now deceased) “Individual commitment to a group effort–that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

So yes one can do this rescue program on their own but it is the individual with their unique skills that make up a part of the whole that will win a championship and in this case will enable more animals to be saved from our shelters.

What does Marks Animal Rescue gain from helping others become animal rescuers?

Answer:  More animals will be saved.   The satisfaction  of helping and  working with people who love, respect and care for animals.  

Are you a registered program? 

Yes,  we are registered with the State of Florida as a 501 c 3 program and our charity no. is listed on the front of our website at bottom of page. We also have a 5 star rating.

Ok so If I wanted to consider your program what is it that would be of benefit to me as a member of Marks Animal Rescue Network?
