The Story

Hi, CBBR supporters. We are once again requesting your help. We responded to an urgent plea from a high kill pound in Tennessee that (by law) must kill all pit bull type dogs who arrive there. They begged us to take in a starving momma dog and her 8 newnorn pups. No one could bring themselves to kill this family even though BSL in the area made any hope of rescue there impossible. We do not typically rescue dogs from outside our own area, but this little famliy had no other hope. 

We are very pleased to report that we had an overwhelming number of offers to transport the dogs to the Chicago area, and they are on their way to our CBBR nursery as we speak (7-14-13).  They have some apparent medical troubles, so we'll be taking them straight to the vet for assessment and care. We are asking for your help to cover their vet costs and the high cost of caring for a large litter like this one. (Yes, we go through about 3 rolls of paper towels a day along with loads and loads of laundry and gallons of fresh goat's milk to help mom keep up.) Your donations--in any amount--are most welcome. As always, if we receive donations in excess of our goal, we will put this money toward the rescue and care of another needy dog. Thank you for your support. You help us make miracles happen for the neediest dogs in the world. 

Your donations are tax deductible.  For more info about CBBR or to contact us to make an in-kind donation, visit us at www.cbbr.org or e-mail [email protected]

Many, many thanks to all of our generous supporters. Ruthie and the kids are doing so well! Ruthie continues to be one of the sweetest dogs we've ever known. She is an attentive mom but takes plenty of "me time" to be with the people and other dogs in the house. She's a doll.

We have also just rescued another momma dog--this time a very pregnant pittie who was hours away from euthanasia at Chicago's public pound. Her name is Kate.  Stay tuned for more updates on our little royal momma. 

Very Best,
Eevie

Hello, everyone! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your generous donations. We are halfway to our goal. Momma Ruthie and her kids are doing beautifully in their foster home. The puppies are fat and happy, and several have already opened their eyes! Ruthie continues to be a stunningly sweet, attentive, and gentle dog. Her foster mom cries every time she talks about what could have become of Ruthie. We all think it was just kind of meant to be. 

More pictures are coming soon. Keep sharing this link and spreading the word about the nursery fund. 

Gratefully,
Eevie

Good morning, everyone! We have some good news.  Ruthie and her gang have arrived safely, thanks to the incredible families who shared the driving all the way from the Mississippi border. Ruthie is one of the gentlest, sweetest dogs we've ever met. She lets everyone love on her puppies and takes excellent care of them. She is being treated for a severe tick infestation, fleas, and some mild dehydration. Her blood test results are still pending, but the vet thought she looked pretty good considering her malnutrition. 

The pups--who are about 7 days old--are in rough shape with urine burns and fleas, but they are well fed and otherwise acting like healthy 7 day olds. They will be seeing the vet this morning. 

We are still very much in need of donations to help support their care. We could also use in-kind donations, including paper towels, laundry detergent, all natural cleaning products, puppy pens, towels, sheets, comforters, and fresh goat's milk or milk replacer. Please e-mail [email protected] form more info about making an in-kind donation.
