URGENT! WA, Tacoma 2-year-old Deaf Pit Bull
I live in Washington state and help rescue dogs. I have a pit bull in need of a rescue. The family came on to hard times this month. Apollo's family have to give him up and by the end of the month.
Here is Apollo's family story: The husband lost his job and so they had to move into this parents house. The husband is abusive to the wife and their 3 children. He beat his wife up and she called the police and he was arrested. His family that her and the kids are staying with said that if she pressed charges that she would have to move. She feels she has to because abuse is getting worse and she fears for her and children's safety. So she has to move by the end of the month and the reason she can not keep him is because she works, is going to school, and raising 3 children by herself. She has tried to find a place that she can afford and keep Apollo but was unable.
I have a very temporary foster home that can keep him till the middle of Sept. then I do not have a place for him after that. The shelter in our town does not adopt pit bulls let alone a deaf one. I am not a rescue I just help dogs in need and usually go and talk to owners that have chained dogs to give them a better life. If there is anyway you could help Apollo I would be deeply appreciated.. I am willing to pay for transport to where ever he needs to go to say his life.
