Rescue volunteers at the Detroit Bully Corps often experience heartache while advocating for dogs in Detroit. But they also experience joy and do what they do so they can witness moments like this! In the footage below, two former fighting dogs meet for the first time. The dogs, Vito and Maggy, were rescued and rehabilitated.
“This video defines the very reason we wake up daily,” writes DBC President William J. Bellottie. “Our mission is to improve the lives of dogs…my personal mission is to end dog fighting. These two dogs have shown the most dignity and they define the very soul of my work, my focus and the American Pit Bull Terrier.”
“At one time they were someone’s cash register, pitted against other canines & bred for money,” he added. “Both came to Detroit Bully Corps in very bad condition. They both truly had the heart of a champion. They both decided to shed the mental scars of an old life and move forward in a world that had given them every reason to throw in the towel.”
Seeing these dogs safe and so happy is the reason why these wonderful people at Detroit Bully Corps wake up daily to do what they do. Keep up the good work, guys!
