This fundraiser was created to honor a beloved pitbull named Sadie. Please read on to find out more and thank you for your time!

In the May of 2009, as we were riding around we found a very scared and lonely pitbull. We did everything we could to find the owners, but no one would claim this gorgeous girl. We decided instead of making her live her life out in a shelter that we were going to take her in. She immediately became my best friend. We took her everywhere. She loved long walks, long rides, she just loved being near you. Over the two years we had her, she changed many minds about the breed and we had many precious memories, more memories than we could ever talk about. With the bad reputation that pitbulls get, we got plenty of stares as well. What everyone didn't see in her, we did. That same "vicious" pitbull they were looking at was the very same pitbull that sat on my lap, slept between me and my fiance, etc. Sadie was diagnosed with lymphoma July 1st, 2011. We wanted to do everything to keep her alive because she was so special and important to us. We did not know financially how we were going to afford it since the treatments cost $5,000.00, but we were going to figure it out. The night before we started her chemotherapy treatments, July 18th, 2011, she left us. As upsetting as this is to us, we know she lives on through us. We wanted to keep her memory alive and that is why we want to gather as much money as we can towards saving pitbulls, or any dog, but especially pitbulls. She made such a difference in our lives and we want to return the favor by making a difference in animals lives. Half of the donations received will benefit the York County SPCA, since most of the dogs there are pitbulls. The other half of the donations will be used at a local veterinary clinic to set up a fund for chemotherapy treatments for another dog who will unfortunately develop cancer. Dogs develop cancer more often than humans. This is a sad statistic, but some cancers are very manageable. Lymphoma happens to be one of the most common cancers in dogs, but one of the easiest to get into remission. Unfortunately, cancer in a pet will likely effect your life at one point or another. Dogs are special companions and we wish we could have had the opportunity to save our precious little girl. We now want to keep her memory alive by saving other animals just like her. Do not forget dogs are man’s best friend, as Sadie was ours. Chemotherapy treatments can add many more memories, precious times, as well as prolong a dog’s life. We know times are tough financially, but we will appreciate any donations. Please help us keep her spirit living on! We miss you so much Sadie and we love you. You still live on through us and you always will!
