Animal Rescue groups have been an important part of our society since the founding of the ASPCA in 1866. Unfortunately, humanity with all its technological advances cannot move beyond the savage acts of animal abuse and neglect.
But in addition to the nationwide ASPCA, Humane Society of the United States, and PETA there are countless smaller rescue groups out there saving the lives of many animals that are deemed “disposable” by our society.
American Bulldog Rescue founded in 1999 is a non profit no kill rescue specializing in all types of bulldogs. Carey Johnson, the director of the Southeast Chapter faces new challenges daily rescuing animals in crisis.
“Droopy” was rescued from an animal control shelter where he was listed as a stray. This sweet loveable dog was born with no bones in his feet or toes! Yet his indomitable spirit makes him a well loved member of the rescue. Droopy is still looking for a foster home or forever home to go to. He will definitely give unconditional adoration to whoever will give him a chance!
Unfortunately, rescue work is not always clean. Carey has been witness to many horrific crimes of cruelty to “man’s best friend” by those they trusted the most.
“Vinnie” was pulled from another animal control/kill shelter. He was a stray whom someone slashed with a knife thus permanently disfiguring his sweet face. But worse than that, this poor dog and his severe injuries were ignored by the staff for a week. It was not until American Bulldog Rescue took him under their wing that he received the medical care he was so deserving of.
