  • Rescue Stories: Meet Bandit

    Meet Bandit Now

    Bandit was rescued by Adopt-A-Bull rescue from a local high-kill shelter in Florida. He needed surgery to fix his many leg problems, but he was too emanciated and weak to undergo anesthesia. He also had a severly swollen jaw from abscessed teeth; a result of either being neglected and starved long enough that the bones in his jaw fused together- or from being traumatically injured. The photos below show him when he was first rescued. Warning, these photos are very graphic, if you do not wish to see bulldogs in peril, do not view the pictures below. He was in rescue for a year.

    He will now tell you his story:
    Hi I'm Bandit! I wuz rescued frum a local high-kill shelter in Miami. I wuz in pretty ruff shape...I needed surgery to fix my leg, but da doc said i wuz waaay to thin and weak to go under "da knife." i also cudn't hardly open my mouth.... my jaw wuz severely swollen frum abscessed teeth...da doc said it wuz a result of either being neglected and starved long enough dat da bones in my jaw fused together! or frum being traumatically injured (either physically abused or hit by a car, etc). But after 6 months of bein hand fed, lubbed on, and cared for, i wuz finally healthy enuff to have my neuter and leg surgeries! "Only" a year after i came to rescue, i finally wuz able to find my furever family. i just lub my lil human puppies and all der friends who lub to pway wif me! life is good now! -lub, Bandit

      This breaks my heart. We need to punish the people who do this! Why do cruel people find it necessary to put any creature thru this kind of torture? Much love to Bandit's furever home, to Adopt-a-Bull rescue for saving him, to his foster parents, and to everyone who has gone without a cup of coffee for one day, instead donating their hard earned money to any rescue AND to EBN who has shared another success story with us.

      So sad that there are people out there that will do that to a poor animal. So glad he was saved and brought back to health.

  • I Rescued A Human Today

    by Janine Allen

    Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

    I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today. Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.

    As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.

    She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.

    A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.

    I would promise to keep her safe.
    I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

    I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

    I rescued a human today.
