HOUSE OF HORRORS
Back in February, a woman name Vicky Adkins came across one of the most horrific cases of abuse, neglect, and unimaginable living situations. As she walked into her son-in-law's house to check on his dogs while he was out of town, she discovered a house of horror. She opened the door and found a woman holding a baseball bat over a dog. Adkins said that she not only witnessed this woman abusing one pit bull, but she also saw a group of other dogs fighting and one close to death. It is unclear how the last dog ultimately died, but Adkins said she tried to save it. That's when she called for help.
The Clinton Humane Society requested backup in removing pitbulls from the residence. "The dogs were covered in feces and blood," the police stated in the media release. "The homeowner claimed the dogs were fighting inside the residence and she was unable to control them, so she called for assistance." The police said the residence had no power, heat, or water. Three males and five females were brought in. The majority are younger than 2 years old and many looked to have been bred. A blue pit bull between 5 and 7 years old looked to have been bred most often. The dogs appeared to have injuries on their faces and legs.
Four of these dogs were deemed aggressive and unsafe to adopt out by a professional who visited them at the Clinton Humane Society approximately two weeks ago.
Yesterday, the Clinton Humane Society agreed to sign these dogs over to Unbreakabull Bullies Rescue and Rehab for rehabilitation. Once in their care, UB will carefully place them in qualified and thoroughly screened homes with bully experience. "Their aggressive behaviors stem from abuse and neglect. These dogs need time, patience, a lot of love and people who know what they are doing and have experience working with troubled dogs. They may have never known a normal life and will need to be taught a new way to live," said Tina Petraline, UB Founder & Director. What is done by humans can oftentimes be undone by humans. "We at UB would like to offer the pitbulls the safety and security they have never known, and watch them blossom into friendly, safe and loving dogs. After what they have been through, they deserve understanding and care."
The discounted cost of training is $750.00 for 4 weeks per dog. It is extremely important that each of these pitbulls get the training. Right now they have been deemed unadoptable. If their aggression is not addressed, they will all have to be euthanized. Please consider helping these dogs get the training they so need and deserve. They have endured the unimaginable and truly need help and support right now.
