An abused pit bull somehow made her way to the doorstep of a caring, loving woman.
It was perfect because the woman happened to work for an animal hospital!!
She took in the doggy and wrote a beautiful post on Craigslist that read:
"Last Friday night, your dog wondered up onto our porch. Signs of the abuse she had somehow escaped, riddled her body. The fresh bite marks on her muzzle, the scars that covered her body, the exposed pink and purple flesh around her neck, where she was obviously tied up with ropes that cut their way into her skin, over and over again. The obvious signs that she had been bred, relentlessly, time after time. The pressure wounds on her elbows that bled whenever they touched anything, from being tied and forced to lay on cement ground and metal cage mesh.
The first night she was here, I stayed up with her and only slept for 2 hours. Every time I'd move, she'd get up and look at me with worry stricken eyes. She didn't want me to leave her."
The post goes on and on talking about the abuse the dog clearly suffered and the love she was now receiving.
Sadly, they found Mama Jade (as they took to calling her) had breast cancer.
The post then went on to say:
"Tomorrow, Mama will finally feel peace. And when she closes her eyes and takes her last breath, I'll be there. I'll hold her big ol head and I'll tell her how much I love her.
And when her soul has left her battered body and I've dried the tears enough to see, I will document every bruise, every bite, every cut, scrape and gash. I'll photograph her teeth, or rather, where her teeth used to be. I'll turn in all the evidence and post it where EVERYONE will see it. I'll use it to educate kids in heavily crime ridden areas, on the horrors of dog fighting."
Except that didn't happen!!
Due to the post going viral and thousands of email asking to donate money, Mama now has a Facebook page and should hopefully have a donation page up and running soon!!
We'll make sure to post that link as soon as it's up so we can show you where to send all your ca$h!!!
