Donations Needed for Pretty Girl and Justice

My friend and fellow rescuer Robin of Measle's Animal Haven Pit Bull Rescue in Dublin, OH is appealing for donations for two very special Pit Bulls in need of surgeries.

Pretty Girl (pictured at left) is a blue and white American Staffordshire Terrier who is about 2 years old. She came to us with a horribly broken jaw that had been crushed and dislocated when she was a puppy and had healed very badly. She cannot even open her mouth and was very emaciated when we took her. She has now gained weight and is so happy in her foster home, but we want to fix her jaw so she can eat normally and live a normal life. She can only open her jaw about 2 millimeters and if she ever vomits she could choke to death because she cannot open her mouth.


Justice (left) is an American Staffordshire puppy who is 6 months old as of 6/23/10. He was rescued by a kind animal control officer from a horrible situation in which he was being slowly starved to death. Also his back legs had been badly broken and allowed to heal badly. He also has a broken foot, pelvis, and his two rear femoral heads are broken. When we took him he weighed 16 pounds and should have weighed 30+. This puppy has been horribly mistreated by people and yet he loves them more than anything. His favorite thing is to curl up on your lap and sleep with his head on your chest while you watch TV.

Measle's Animal Haven is a 501(c)(3) organization and any donations you give are tax-deductible (we will be happy to provide you with a receipt). Please help us fix Pretty Girl's and Justice's broken bones and continue to save the lives of so many pit bulls every year.

We also need donations to continue our PIT FIX program, which has allowed us to spay and neuter hundreds of owned pit bulls, so we can reduce the number of unwanted bulls that are euthanized every year in Central Ohio. The demand for this service is incredible and it allows us to also educate pit bull owners on how to be responsible owners.

PLEASE help us help them, and the countless other pit bulls we save every year.

Sincerely,

Robin Laux, Director

Here I am, once again, asking for donations to help Robin Laux and her rescued Pit Bulls.

She has two very special cases, Pretty Girl and Justice, who need some very expensive surgery to correct broken bones inflicted by their previous owners. It is unbelievable what some of these bully breeds endure at the hands of lousy, low-life humans. THANK GOD for Robin and her organization who, not only rescue these dogs, but also provides much needed education on the breed, has put together a wonderful spay/neuter program for owners, and has been a major voice against banning .. and, basically, wiping out an entire breed of dog. She and her volunteer staff have crusaded endlessly to bring enlightenment to the citizens of central Ohio, as well as our legislature and law enforcement, that dangerous and vicious dogs are not the result of a specific breed but rather the ignorance and stupidity of an irresponsible owner.

So, once again, I am asking for some financial assistance for this wonderful young woman so that she can help two very innocent dogs have the "second" chance at life they deserve ... only this time, with a RESPONSIBLE owner.

Even a "buck" will help ... and please pass this on to your friends and family. All information is listed below.

Thanks and God Bless.
