Mariko and Robert are raising money to fund the medical care of a mama Pit Bull/AmStaff and her 4 puppies. Any donation helps! Thank you!

We found a mama Pit Bull/AmStaff and her four puppies running around a dark and wooded road late at night. They were disoriented, did not have any form of identification, and were all observably neglected. To avoid putting them at risk for further harm, we picked them up and took them home. No shelters in our county are able take them in with a "no-kill" guarantee. Our ultimate goal is to find them all adoptive families, but in the meantime, they need IMMEDIATE medical care: neutering, deworming, and vaccination shots. We appreciate your donations, and ANY AMOUNT helps to offset the sudden cost of caring for five dogs in need. Thank you for your support!!

P.S. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting or fostering any of these dogs, here is the information we have so far:

The puppies are all male, and are approximately 9 weeks old. Three of the four puppies are pictured here. They are highly social among themselves and are also very people-oriented.

The mother is approximately 4-5 years old. She is extremely patient and nurturing to her puppies, and very trusting of humans. She has showed no apprehension whatsoever when socializing with people. We have not yet allowed her to interact with other animals other than her puppies.

Unfortunately, we feel it is unlikely the mother will find a forever home, due to her breed and her looks: she has a mostly black coat, she has cropped ears, and she has nursed, which are three characteristics that are often considered unattractive by many potential adopters. We would like to avoid sending her and the puppies to a shelter if at all possible. Thank you for reading!
