Mayday Pit Bull Rescue & Advocacy started with one little dog in a bad situation.
Now known as “Mayday”, this little pit bull was once scheduled to be euthanized at the local shelter because he had an eye condition which required surgery and virtually eliminated any chance of adoption.
Walk through any shelter and you will notice that the breed that fills the majority of kennels is the pit bull and many are in situations similar to Mayday’s…they have been neglected and require medical care, they have been abused and are shy or unresponsive or bear the scars of their past treatment…they have been bred or made to fight for profit.
For Mayday, rescue came in the form of a kind deed by an Animal Control officer who allowed me to adopt him, get him the surgery he so desperately needed and provide him with a loving home. On that day, April 14, 2008, I decided to dedicate myself to saving pit bulls in similar situations…those whose lives were hanging in the balance between ambivalence and compassion.
Mayday is now a happy and healthy member of my family and the rescue group we established in his name is devoted to creating that same future for other pit bulls in need.
