    Default Chicago English Bulldog Rescue Rescues 13 EB's this past weekend

    From CEBR's facebook page:

    As part of our ongoing mission to help bulldogs in need CEBR will sometimes take on special missions as part of our Exceptional Rescue Program. These missions focus on puppy mill, commercial breeding, dog auction and large scale surrender situations where dogs are truly suffering, often in hopeless situations.

    We recently found out about two groups of bullies in Arkansas that truly needed our help and this weekend we drove for almost 3 straight days to a desolate region of the south on a very special rescue mission dubbed "Project ARK".

    Project ARK was a two-part mission. We first removed 8 bullies from a commercial breeding operation in the remote parts of the Ozarks. We successful drove away with 3 breeding girls, 1 pregnant breeder mom, and 1 mom with three beautiful 3 week old puppies. These girls were living in outdoor kennels, on the cold earth, with little protection from the rain and elements.

    The next day we completed the second part of our mission. We rescued another 4 bullies from a mill in Oklahoma through a clandestine meeting with one of our mill contacts. This mill is infamous for kicking or dropping its puppies and is the same mill that brought us Sally May, Tallulah, Sookie Sue and Dora. Finally, we were able to take in one last bully that originally came out of the Oklahoma mill, but has been housed by an animal hoarder for the past year.

    So all in all, 12 beautiful females and 1 handsome male!

    A huge welcome to Jessie, Clara, Sugar Mama, Penny, Jade, Cora, Leo, Olivia, Juliette and Gigi along with the three yet to be named babies.

    This is the exciting and happy news. The unhappy part of this announcement is that all of these beautiful bullies came from conditions that any of us would find deplorable. Legal? Yes. Disgusting? Absolutely!

    In preparation for this mission our volunteers rallied to arrange transport and prepare foster homes for the arrival of the Project ARK bullies. The 20 hour round-trip (much of it through blinding rain on the way there, and ice storms on the way back) was worth every second of it once we met these beautiful bullies who already have touched our hearts.

    Jade is a six year old female that has spent her life breeding puppies. She came to us with her 3 pups. She is skinny and her teeth are ground down to mere nubs. She has ulcerated eyes that continually leak puss. And yet she is the most affectionate and caring mother. Throughout the long journey Jade never stopped worrying about and caring for her babies even though she was so tired she could barely keep her eyes open. She would look at us as if to say "Thank your for helping my babies." Jade is now in a place where she will finally get the care she so sorely needs and deserves.

    Sugar Mama is full of life and joy. The whole trip for her and Clara (a silly and very pudgy girl) was met with wonder and awe at the excellent adventure they were now on outside of the breeding kennel. Sugar Mama is pregnant and due later this month. We get to watch her grow over the next several weeks and canít wait to meet her litter. Rest assured these pups will be born in a vet's office instead of in a cold outdoor kennel.

    Over the next days and weeks we will share the stories of each of these miraculous rescues. We are in awe of these special bullies who have already showed us their capacity to forgive and move on from the barren lives of neglect they have known.

    We Need Your Help

    In addition to all of the spays, vaccinations and routine medical care that is needed, because of years of neglect, many of these dogs will require extensive medical care. We have two severe orthopedic issues which will require perhaps multiple surgeries. We have the birth and care of another litter of pups in addition to the medical care for their momma. One of the 3 week old pups is very small and in a very precarious place medically. There are cherry eyes, ticks and skin infections and a myriad of other issues that will need to be addressed before they are ready for adoption.

    We are committed to giving each and every one of them a great new life, but we can't do it without your help. We are very grateful for the generosity of our supporters and we are reaching out to you once again because we know you love bulldogs as much as we do. Please consider contributing to Project ARK to help us complete our mission.

    No donation is too small. Any amount that you can contribute will go a long way to helping them heal. A special medical fund has been set up and your donation will sponsor their care.

    Help make Project Ark an end-to-end success!

    Check back later today to view videos and see the story of the trip itself. We will start to introduce you to each of these hambones over the next few days.

    Please Donít Forget Our Other Bullies!

    While it is easy to get caught up in the excitement of these new arrivals, we also want to let everyone know that Abby, Huxley, Caesar, Princess and Beauty also arrived over the last week or so. And donít forget our bullies that have been waiting to be adopted for some time now like Mable, Taffy and Frida. These bullies are ready for their new homes now and we would like those that are approved to adopt with CEBR to open their homes to our ready and waiting bullies!

    Chicago French Bulldog Rescue (who I'm a part of) went with and rescued 13 French Bulldogs at the same place. Good Job Rescues for getting those dogs out of the deplorable conditions!
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.
