Fuzzy Faces of Midwest Adopt-a-Bull
All week, I’ve been begging people to make a donation to Midwest Adopt-a-Bull.
I thought you might want to see some of the dogs your hard-earned money will help.
In its first few months of existence, Midwest Adopt-a-Bull, a tiny bully breed rescue group in Kansas City, has helped save over 17 animals from shelters, the streets and neglectful home situations.
Although the organization, founded earlier this year by pit bull lover Mike Kitchens, is dedicated to bully breeds, the group loves dogs, period. Two Chihuahuas, my own mystery foster mutt Charlie Machete and little hound dog Tobias have all been rolled into Midwest Adopt-a-Bull.
And then there’s Buster, the cat who got his foot caught in an illegal steel trap. He required an amputation and is now being fostered by a Midwest Adopt-a-Bull volunteer. He’s our “honorary bully.” Any donations made specifically for him will be used to help with his care.
Midwest Adopt-a-Bull does not have a shelter. Every animal lives in a foster home. In a way, this helps keeps some costs down while at the same time providing more socialization for the dogs.
However, as anyone with a pet knows, vet costs can add up quickly, especially when you are rescuing animals. And then there’s all that food to buy.
To learn more about Midwest Adopt-a-Bull, check out the website. You can make a donation directly via PayPal.
If you’re in the Kansas City area, you can also help this great group by attending Fashion-a-Bull Fall at Madewell this Sunday, Oct. 28. Just make sure you buy a raffle ticket (or 10) from me! So far, I have $125 toward my $500 goal!
Wherever you are, don’t forget to celebrate Pit Bull Awareness Day tomorrow! I’ll be doing the Coast to Coast Bully Walk with KC Pittie Pack!
Another way to support Midwest Adopt-a-Bull is by entering the Retro Vixen giveaway. To enter, all you have to do is Like Midwest Adopt-a-Bull and a couple other pages on Facebook.
