Dear animal fans,
We would like to welcome our new subscribers/donors and well wishers to START’s weekly updates.
This has been a very emotional week for a lot of us.
As most of you know there was a news report about a 3 year old Pit Bull named “INDY” who had fire works strapped to his body and set alight.
we was asked to help this poor dog that is currently at the vet hospital undergoing several operations and procedures. Skin specialists have been called in to evaluate his third degree burns and INDY will need to undergo 6-8 week of intensive vet care.
BUT – through his pain and suffering INDY’s spirit has not been broken.
The news channels will continue to update his story and we would also like to mention that several anonymous donors have a combined REWARD of $11,000 for the capture and prosecution of the people who did this to INDY.
Although this was a horrific and callous incident we have tried to look for the positive in this and through the 1000 + emails of support, donations and love for INDY’S recovery we are astonished by the outpouring of kindness and compassion. We “THANK YOU.”
We fight for the underdog and we hope you will find time to read INDY’s Story and update below along with some of our other HAPPY TAILS of dogs/cats we have sent on our transports out of California’s high kill shelters to begin new journeys with our transport partners in the Pacific Northwest.
Thank you ALL for being a hero to INDY and caring about our 4-legged friends.
THE START TEAM
