I lost my dog today "Bear". He was the best dog I've ever had and came down with parvo before I was able to have him vaccinated, he was a rescue dog and I gave him a great home. Even if I didn't have the money to feed myself I would make sure he was fed. I gave him a loving home and he was the sweetest most loyal dog I've ever met. I called emergency vet clinics last night when he became sick and no one would see him without full payment up front. Also it was pretty pathetic that they asked the breed and when I said male pit bull they said they can't take him in at this time. My heart is broken and I know that this happens to alot of people and some don't realize our animals ARE family. I think something needs to be done to help people care for their animals when help is needed.
