Thousands of loving pit bulls end up in shelters around the country each year.
People are quick to abandon these dogs, and because of breed stereotypes, they often ignore them when they see them on the street. Worse still is that potential adopters walk right past pit bulls in shelters for the same reason.
Dennis was one pit bull that sadly became a statistic. When the good people at Hope For Paws found him, he was sick, neglected, and in desperate need of some love. Although the situation looked dire, these volunteers pulled off an incredible rescue. Watch until the end to learn a painful, powerful lesson about animal cruelty.
Unfortunately, Dennis was too weak to pull through, but I know for a fact that these volunteers would do it all again if they could.
Thousands of animals need our help, which makes the work of rescuers so important. Head over to the organization's website to find out how you can lend a helping hand.
