PUPPY USED AS BAIT DOG VISITS STUDENTS WHO HELPED SAVE HER - “A dog that was rescued after being dumped on a Brooklyn street and left to die is recovering thanks in part to students from an Upper West Side school that helped raise money to pay for her medical bills.”
A Pit Bull puppy named Misty was discovered on a New York street, abandoned and with serious injuries. It appears that she was used as a bait dog in a dog fighting ring and was thrown away. Students at the Stephen Gaynor School were inspired by Misty’s story and raised approximately $800 for her medical bills. Fortunately Misty is recovering and is being cared for by a rescue organization called Second Chance Rescue NYC. She recently visited the school to meet her supporters. Here’s more from CBS News:
The young pit bull puppy named Misty was found with serious injuries and bite wounds all over her face and body. She is believed to have been used as a bait dog for dog fighting.
When Second Chance Rescue took Misty from a city shelter to treat her wounds, students at the Stephen Gaynor School began following the pup’s progress on the “Misty’s Journey” Facebook pageand decided to help.
They set up bake sales and raised more than $800 to help pay for Misty’s care.
On Thursday, Misty visited the school so students could meet her in person.
Spanjol said she hopes the students’ work will help raise awareness about dog fighting.
“There aren’t any bad dogs, there are bad owners,” Spanjol said.
Misty has inspired many people, and now she has a second chance at life thanks to the students and others who helped her. Click here for the full story and here to learn more about Second Chance rescue. (Photos from Gaynor School and Misty’s Journey Facebook pages)
