Where abuse can damage, compassion can repair

Best Friends Animal Society is featuring a story this week about Dolly, a pit bull rescued from abuse, neglect and starvation. With a new home now, she is soaking in the compassion and giving back the love.

Dolly was rescued through the new Court Case Dog program in Chicago, which involves “assessing, training and finding homes for dogs who have been the victims of cruelty, abuse or neglect and who have been impounded at ACC as evidence in the former persons’ court cases.”

She was featured in a PSA with Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buerhle and his wife Jamie.

So yes – abused dogs can be rehabilitated. And rescued pets know they’ve been rescued. And rescued pets make the greatest pets. Dolly is proof positive of all these things.
