Dogs are man's best friend, but it is not always the other way around. The Little Red Dog was founded in memory of a little red American Pit Bull Terrier who did not make it. If you are familiar with the Michael Vick dog fighting case chronicled in The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption. The Little Red Dog was brutally beaten to death by Vick and his cronies because she had the audacity to not to want to fight.
50+ other dogs were confiscated from Vick, and most were rehabilitated. Many of the dogs are lovable, friendly creatures desperate for compassion. In The Lost Dogs, "we meet these amazing animals, a number of which are now living in loving homes, while some even work in therapy programs: Johnny Justice participates in Paws for Tales, which lets kids get comfortable with reading aloud by reading to dogs; Leo spends three hours a week with cancer patients and troubled teens." If you have not read the book, we highly recommend it. Some of the best part of the stories are the "rescue workers who transformed the pups from victims of animal cruelty into healing caregivers themselves, unleashing priceless hope." It's time to stop the prejudice against the American Pit Bull Terrier, stop Breed discrimination and most of all, open our hearts and minds to all creatures, if you do, they give you so much in return.
The Little Red Dog fights for all the dogs, red, blue, tan, white, brown, black and all colors in between. We do not discriminate against ANY breed; that's because we are a real rescue, and we will help as many animals as we can. Our primary goal is to get them into loving homes. Our hope that some day all of them make it out, but most of all, we will never forget the Little Red Dog and many others who did not.
