Charles & Bella

Not long ago, Charles had a beautiful chocolate pit bull named Cupcake. He was deeply attached to her and late last year the worst happened. Cupcake went missing and Charles searched everywhere for her. Tragically, he found her dead in an arroyo just before the holidays. Charles thought his broken heart would never mend and he didn’t think he could bear to get another dog. But a month later, he saw some photos of a little chocolate pit bull named Bella on our Facebook page and he knew he had to visit her.

Bella’s mother arrived at the Shelter heavily pregnant and quickly gave birth to a large litter of pups. Our medical team monitored them closely giving them supplemental feeding to ensure they would pull through. Every two weeks, Charles would check in with Bella, offering homemade chicken jerky to her mom. When Bella was old enough to be spayed, he finally got to take her home. Charles says that Bella has helped to fill the hole in his heart, bringing love and joy everywhere she goes. When you support our work, you help make this love possible.

In order to ensure that we can be there for people who are looking for a companion animal, we need your support. The dog star, named Sirius by the ancient Greeks, is the brightest star in the night sky. When you become a monthly giver you shine brightly for homeless animals who need it most.
