Meet Shark Boy and Lava Girl. They are two of the many faces of dog fighting. They were seized along with Junior and hundreds of other dogs in the nation's largest multi-state federal dog fighting raid in history. Shark Boy and Lava Girl are some of the lucky ones who get a second chance. Several organizations, including PBRC, have assisted the Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) in caring for these dogs in a temporary emergency shelter.
Now that some of the dogs have been released by the courts, the time has finally come for them to be placed with rescue groups for further evaluation and adoption. As you know, Pit Bull Rescue Central (PBRC) has established the PBRC St. Louis Second Chance Fund.
This fund will help the approved organizations and individuals with some of the financial costs related to the rehoming of these dogs. Rehoming any dog at any time can be a costly matter. Many of these dogs may require treatment for various medical conditions. PBRC wants to help these dogs get their second chance.
We need your support. Please help us help all the "Shark Boys" and "Lava Girls" get their second chance, too. PBRC has created a special edition PBRC St. Louis Second Chance Fund T-shirt that is now available. Proceeds from this t-shirt will go to the PBRC St. Louis Second Chance Fund.
