The Save-a-Bull family is deeply saddened by the loss of volunteer, foster and friend, Michael McDonough.
Many people have asked for an update on Jack who had surgery to remove a damaged eye. Well, we’re happy to say that Jack came through his surgery without incident.
As summer starts to wind down, we know fall is on the horizon and that school will be starting soon. Three very special young ladies will be starting their freshman year of college in the coming month after doing something really special with the end of their senior year of high school.
Puppies, carnival games and ice cream – it’s the recipe for a perfect summer day! Save-a-Bull Rescue took over Urban Tails Pet Supply on July 25 to celebrate summer with a game-filled ice cream social and bake sale. All pups who joined in the fun got to enjoy a yummy (dog safe) ice cream treat, while their people had the opportunity to win fabulous prizes in Plinko, Corn Hole or Duck Pond. Lines were long and the competition was fierce but with so many happy dogs cheering the players on, everyone was a winner. Save-a-Bull alumni and adoptables turned out in full force for the event. Stealing hearts on that gorgeous day were adoptable darlings: Ladybug, Blinker, Regan, Lucy, Lucas and Niles. (Niles, and Lucas have since found their forever homes). Another heartbreaker: Boris, one of Save-a-Bull’s beloved alumni, came along to lend a helping paw at the bake sale. Cookies, cakes, pies, dog biscuits galore tempted everyone who shopped that day. Save-a-Bull volunteers baked up a delectable variety of treats for both dogs and their people. No one was able to pass by those tables of yumminess without their mouths watering. It’s a little known fact that Betty Crocker got her start baking dog cookies for her beloved pit bull, Cookie.* She then mentored class upon class of Save-a-Bull […]
Yesterday we said goodbye to a life way too soon. Little Annie came to us on June 26 with her six siblings at only three days old. At the beginning, Annie was a rock star at bottle feeder and quickly became one of the largest, if not the largest, of the litter. She joined her siblings with their new mama Rozalyn and everything seemed perfect.
It is with a heavy heart that we have to share the passing of Save-a-Bull’s longest resident elder bull, Fitz. He was with us for two and a half years and he was 12 years old. Fitz came to rescue in February of 2013 at the age of ten. He was surrendered by his owner because their child had developed severe allergies to dogs. A fantastic older gentleman, Fitz was great with dogs, people of all ages and almost any situation. He enjoyed going for walks, playing tug, but most of all Fitz enjoyed taking naps. As with any older dog, Fitz had his share of medical issues but overall was a fairly healthy boy. He made his last appearance with us at the Paws @ the Park event on Wednesday, June 24. He was happy to roll in the grass, meet new people and play with other dogs. That weekend, his abdomen suddenly became swollen with fluid and he was in a lot of pain. The vets suspected a ruptured tumor and the condition was life threatening. Along with the doctors, we carefully considered the risk of surgery and the quality of life he’d be left with at his age should he survive. Together we made the heart-breaking decision to let Fitz go and end his suffering. Even though Fitz was […]
