1. A Pittie Transformation
This poor girl went through a dramatic transformation – from the initial photo taken of her by animal control on the day she was picked up, to months later in a loving home.
When she was first found, she was ᴀɴᴇᴍɪᴄ from fleas and had patches of fur ᴍɪssing from her body. Now she’s gorgeous and happy as can be!
Ari the boxer was a stray in Texas, and was almost ᴇᴜᴛʜᴀɴɪᴢᴇᴅ before being rescued. He had ᴛᴇʀʀɪʙʟᴇ ᴍᴀɴɢᴇ, ᴘʏᴏᴅᴇʀᴍᴀ, and the tips of his ears were beginning to sʟᴏᴜɢʜ ᴏꜰꜰ. He was treated for 5 months before being taken home by a loving rescue worker.
Penny used to be sad quite often, but not now! Today sweet Penny is happy in her forever home in South Carolina. Penny started off at just 42lbs, but now maintains a healthy 65lbs and feels much better!
Pit mix Ivy went from scared and skinny to sweet and healthy. Owner Jannina notes that after adopting her first pit bull mix, Sookie, she wasn’t in the market for another dog. However, when she met Ivy, she just couldn’t turn her away.
Ivy was sᴇᴠᴇʀᴇly ᴜɴᴅᴇʀᴡᴇɪɢʜᴛ and had a ɴᴀsᴛʏ ᴡᴏᴜɴᴅ on her neck, likely from an ᴇᴍʙᴇᴅᴅᴇᴅ collar. When owner Jannina first met Ivy, the dog laid its head at Jannina’s feet, and Jannina knew she couldn’t leave the shelter without Ivy.
Today Jannina, along with Sookie and Ivy, work to correct misconceptions about pitbulls through adorable antics, photos, and videos, like their popular Jurassic Park reenactment.
Ajax, an eskimo mix, was found weighing just 26 lbs, composed of skin, bone, and ᴍᴀɴɢᴇ. He had kennel ᴄᴏᴜɢʜ and could barely use his hind legs. Today, 8 months later, he is a healthy 42 lbs and happy as can be!

Molly was just one day away from being ᴇᴜᴛʜᴀɴɪᴢᴇᴅ, but her destined-to-be owner stepped in and saved the day. Molly was found roaming in a canyon, believed to have been ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ there. She was found with ᴍᴀɴɢᴇ, two ear i͛n͛f͛e͛c͛t͛ions, worms, and an ᴜᴘᴘᴇʀ ʀᴇsᴘɪʀᴀᴛᴏʀʏ i͛n͛f͛e͛c͛t͛ion. Molly’s owner notes that she is the most loving companion and friend a human could ask for.
Today, Molly helps other pets improve their chances of being adopted by being a foster friend as her owner fosters other animals.
