FIND ME A FOSTER FRIDAY!
Ralphie is a Super Hero to us! He wishes he could use his spidey-senses to find him a foster or forever home. Ralphie is a GORGEOUS little blue boy, social and fun-loving. He’s currently in boarding but would much rather be chillin’ with you in your home. If you are interested in fostering and live in San Diego County (Riverside OK) please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can’t foster, please share!

Strut Your Mutt!
Best Friends Animal Society
With a new expansion into Connecticut BFAS decided to get out our walking shoes and participate in Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt in NYC!!! Please consider sponsoring us in this walk with a donation! No donation is too small and 100% is given to us!
Here’s what your generous donation can do!
– $500 pays for in depth medical needs including diagnostic tests

Donations will help dogs like Trooper. Trooper was attacked by a pack of dogs on the streets of San Diego. He received intensive vet care and training to build his confidence again.
Trooper was rescued by It’s The Pits after being attacked by dogs on the street. It’s The Pits nurtured him back to health and worked with him on his confidence and he has since found a great forever home!
Trooper is just one of almost 1,000 dogs It’s The Pits has rescued and adopted out to date. We are Strutting Our Mutt to continue to save dogs and provide vital medical treatment for shelter dogs.

A plea from the founder of It’s The Pits
Meet Chili a 1 year old pup . . . and what a very sweet, fun loving pup she is. She loves life and everything about it. Good with kids, small dogs and big dogs. She needs an FHO (Femoral Head Osteotomy) done now. She is in pain and is non-weight bearing as you can see in the pictures. We pulled her from being euthanized due to her needing the surgery.
We also took in Tonka who has been in the hospital since Christmas day he was rushed in with vomiting, diarrhea and he is fighting for his life. No obstruction, negative Parvo tests but whatever is attacking him acts like Parvo. Obviously, his care is VERY expensive; $100/day not including tests, medication, x-rays, ultrasounds, etc.
We have a 6 week old puppy with pneumonia and a 3 month old puppy with a prolapsed rectum (3 surgeries so far) so we are looking at A LOT of vet bills.
Please, if you can manage it, we would be so very grateful if you can help with a donation. We sure would appreciate any help you are willing to give.
We can send out a receipt for your tax records also. We have a secure credit card donation form available on our home page so that there are no fees. We also use PayPal, our address is email@example.com.
If you prefer snail mail, the address is
P.O. Box 720008

All of us at It’s The Pits thank you and wish you a very Happy New Year.
