• Used As Bait And Breeders, These PitBulls Were Trapped In Hell.Until Someone Decided To Do Something About It

    2 years ago - By iHeart Dogs

    The life of a stray dog is truly tragic. Wandering aimlessly in search of safety and survival, thousands of these dogs are left scared and vulnerable on the streets, left with little hope. Stray dogs come from a variety of circumstances; irresponsible pet owners who got overwhelmed by the level of commitment required to raising an animal, abusive owners or neglectful breeders. And some, like the dogs you're about to meet, end up homeless and terrified as the result of an already horrific experience: dog fighting.

    2 years ago - By Animal Friends

    Hi. I'm Snuggles! My name is a bit of a joke because I am not the "snuggly" kind, but don't form an opinion yet! I am a very well-behaved cat who prefers not to be picked up and cuddled. I am a 4 -year-old female and have lived with a single mom, her teenage kids and another female cat who went to live with a relative.
    My mom believes I would be an excellent cat for an assisted living or long-term care facility because I am a very well-behaved cat! I don't get up on the table or counters, I don't hound you when you are eating, I don't go outside of the litter box, I don't wrap myself...

    2 years ago - By Animal Friends

    Snoopy is a nine year old Rat Terrier who doesn't know he's a dog. But not to worry,
    Rat Terriers can live up to 18 years and even longer. I bought him from a breeder when he was 6 weeks old. He has had regular check-ups at the Vet. Therefore, Snoopy is very healthy and intelligent. He rings a bell when he needs to go out to potty. He is definitely not an outside dog although he does love to go for walks.
    Snoopy is a good dog. We've never had trouble with him chewing on things that were not his. Just every once in a while, he goes into the garbage when we are not home. But, he is a quite...

    Magic, formerly Mulligan, first became a member of the Animal Friend's family in March 2012 after he was confiscated from his previous owner. Although the transition to a shelter environment can be difficult for a lot of our furry friends, Magic never let that get him down. In a short time, his good looks and wonderful personality had helped him find what everyone hoped would be his forever home.
    He lived happily with his new adopter for a few years, before life threw Magic another curve ball. His owner, a citizen of the United Kingdom, faced deportation. She would have to move back to...

    Harley is a 2-year-old male. His bio listed him as a Dane Mastiff mix, but the vet thinks he is Rhodesian ridgeback mix. Either way he is a 70lb fun loving dog.

    He recently (April 17th) went to Misty Pines training boot camp for two weeks. The training went very well but he definitely needs some more work. He is very excitable, but listens well. I have all the paperwork for training and the commands he was taught...
