Getting a little help from our friends
Wednesday may have been Independence Day, but as of this week, there is one thing Wayward House is no longer doing independently:
I am thrilled to announce that Charlie Machete has officially been accepted into the Midwest Adopt-a-Bull rescue organization. You can peep his pretty shovelhead on the Adoptable Dogs page of the group’s website.
How does this change things?
Not a lot, actually. Charlie Machete will continue to exist under our care at Wayward House until he is adopted by his forever family. However, now we will get some help from the rescue group with such matters as routine veterinary costs and food.
Most importantly, we now have a larger network of experienced animal rescuers to help us ensure that whoever steps up to adopt this beautiful black dog is the right fit.
I can’t explain for sure why we didn’t enroll Charlie Machete into an official rescue organization sooner. Part of my reluctance stemmed from my knowledge that many rescue groups are overwhelmed and underfunded. In a way, I thought we were helping by not making a rescue group add one more dog to its already overflowing roster.
But sometimes you just need a little help from your animal loving friends in order to get the foster job done.
Midwest Adopt-a-Bull was founded by the dedicated and knowledgeable Mike Kitchens (a.k.a. the man who loves pit bulls), who has advised and inspired me many times over the past months.
Like us, Mike believes that Charlie Machete and so many animals like him deserve the chance to live up to their whole potential in a loving home for all of their days.
