Please Help Hartley!!!

We saved Hartley from severe neglect. Now she needs saving again…Please help her!

Hartley needs a new foster immediately. C’mon, Pit Bull community, we can do this! Please Share, Click & Comment, or better, consider fostering this girl who is all heart:

Hartley is crate trained, house trained, playful, petite, and accustomed to other pets. Hartley’s foster mom has a family emergency with a family member hospitalized and undergoing urgent surgery. We’d like to find her a new foster immediately so Hartley can settle in to one place instead of bouncing around. Could you open your heart and home to this petite beauty?

Hartley has been living with 2 male and 1 female dog, and a dog-friendly female cat. She is slowly being integrated with the pack with controlled interactions and is doing awesome. She is eager to learn and please, she is full of so much love to give. Hartley is a young girl who acts so much like a puppy…so she listens very well with simple and clear guidance.

Please help her.

Freedom Ride For Hartley!

Freedom photos! Mercy for Hartley, rescued from a high-kill shelter, her owner under criminal investigation for severe neglect! Just look at this baby’s poor skin! This is a joint rescue by OCPBR and  The Ark Animal Rescue.

To donate to her foster care, please click on Donate button to the right of this post. Hartley, after giving kisses and love to her rescuers, is going straight to the vet for emergency care.

Despite everything, Hartley is still a happy, active little girl who is approximately 3 years old. She was adopted out from a locall high kill shelter in March with Demodex mange, which is very treatable. Hartley left on a medical waiver, which required the adopter to follow up with the shelter about her healthcare. Well, he never did. Poor Hartley is now in terrible shape and landed in the shelter again as a forced owner surrender due to severe neglect, pending criminal investigation. In such bad shape, she would not have made it out of the shelter without rescue help. Harley deserves her second chance: she is a very sweet, loving little lady.
