Why support Love-A-Bull?
To help us give more “Happy Tails,” of course!
All funds raised for Love-A-Bull, a 100% volunteer-run, foster-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, go directly toward advocacy, education and rescue on behalf of pit bull-type dogs.
They go back to helping dogs like Orson, who came to our rescue via shelter after he was found as a stray in San Antonio. This puppy’s time was almost up — he had trauma from a previous injury that resulted in a necessary eye removal, plus two cherry eyes in addition to a terrible case of mange.
With the help of funds donated by our wonderful supporters, and having an available foster to care for him, we were able to pull Orson into our Adopt-A-Bulls rescue program and get him the initial surgery that he needed! While Orson was waiting to get a little bit stronger for his cherry-eye procedure, he went and got himself adopted. ❤️
And even though Orson has found his furever home, we are still desperately searching for more fosters and adopters! With the holidays approaching and people’s travel schedules filling up, we expect a slowdown in adoptions — but the pleas for our help across rural communities in Texas never stop coming. These dogs need us. They need YOU.
