I chose this story to share with you. Please take the time to read this girl's story, she's a survivor.
They could chain her, starve her. They could breed her, fight her. They could beat her, neglect her. They could not break her. Tillie - #367 Survivor More about this campaign
Please join Handsome Dan's Rescue in celebrating Tillie's one year anniversary of living in a home as part of a family.
Tillie now wears a pink collar and a necklace of big faux pearls. Her legs are bowed and she has trouble walking because her legs broke under the weight of a heavy collar and chain that choked her for years to the buried car axle. She has a broken sternum, a broken tail, and is battling heart worms. But her spirit could not be broken. In August 2013, law enforcement and dog advocacy agents rescued Tillie and 366 other dogs in the second largest dog-fighting raid in U.S. history which spanned across Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Texas. Federal and local agents also seized firearms and drugs and $500,000 in cash from dogfighting gambling that took place over the course of a three-year investigation. And now Tillie is living her new, chain-free life in Rhode Island. Please help support Tillie, her fellow #367 survivors, and Handsome Dan's Rescue.
