Farewell to Pit Crew’s Ann & Kane

Farewell Daphne

Making History: Childress, Texas

Love-A-Bull is changing the hearts of a community while saving its pit bull type dogs from euthanasia. Prior to Love-A-Bulls involvement, the City of Childress, Texas had an immediate euthanasia policy for all pit bull type dogs that entered their shelter.
