Back when I doing the pretend journalist thing, I made a number of friends in the local animal rescue community. One of them sent me an email today about a gorgeous little Pit Bull that was adopted from our local animal shelter and returned a few days later with some injuries and a broken spirit. She'd fallen in love with the dog who she is now calling "Angel" but she needs $2,500 to pay for surgery to fix her leg. Currently, the dog is on pain medication but she needs help as soon as possible.
I would never ask anyone to donate to something that I didn't think was a worthy or legitimate cause, and if you are at all hesitant, I can assure you that Lisa, the dog's guardian angel is the real deal. She's helped so many animals in our community in so many different ways that receiving this email from her did not surprise me at all.
Also, I don't know how it works throughout the rest of the country, but in our area, Pit Bulls are usually euthanized before any other dog, so she truly saved this beautiful pup's life. And now she's trying to save her leg from amputation so that she can eventually run and jump and play like a normal dog.
As of right now, she's already raised about $1,000, but if you can help by contributing even a few dollars, it will go a long way. If you choose to help Angel, go to this link, click on the orange "ChipIn!" button and it will redirect you to Paypal so that you can make the donation to the right place.
Have a great last football weekend of the season (sigh) and go Giants!!
