Eli, a 9-month-old Pit Bull, was rescued along with fourteen other dogs from a local shelter and brought to Redemption Road Rescue of Michigan. He was covered in mites and seemed broken hearted.
Eli had a horrible case of mange covering his little body. Immediately, he was treated and started to improve. Fast forward two months and his personality blossomed. The handsome pup thrived in his foster home. He thoroughly enjoyed the warm bed, treats, and belly rubs. His beautiful stone-blue fur coat returned and his broken heart was mended.
The young pup turned into a playful goofball who loves everyone he meets, even cats! He is just a typical dog who loves peanut butter, belly rubs, and playing with his friends. Finally, his special someone showed up and took him home. His new dad will be taking Eli on a lot of fun adventures.
It is National Feed A Rescue Pet Week. Last year we beat our goal of feeding 3 million rescue pets. This year our goal is to provide 5 million meals to rescue pets, but we need your help!
Redemption Road Rescue thanks GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program for providing food, which allowed them to use the money saved on treatment for Eli. “Rescue Bank allows us to help medical cases, dogs that need hundreds or thousands of dollars of medical. By giving us supplies and food, we are able to have more funds available for the medical needs of dogs like Eli and helping them is made easier with Rescue Bank’s help!”
Rescue Bank has donated over 275 million meals to animals in need. It is the world’s largest pet food distribution network. The goal is to donate pet food to shelters, rescues and sanctuaries to help feed the animals until they find forever homes. Pet food is the number one expense for rescues, usually taking their whole budget. This leaves little or nothing for vet care and treatment. Rescue Bank steps up to help by sending donated food to rescues in need. The money a rescue or shelter saves on buying food can then be used for vet care, vaccinations, adoptions and much more.
Help feed animals in need by donating to Rescue Bank. Just $10 ships 400 meals – donate now! For every $1 donated, you save a rescue $17 to help an animal in need.
