Rad1 When Rad came to us, he was quite under the weather. Tests showed he had major heart damage due to heart worms. We decided the right thing to do was to treat Rad. Knowing the   success rate was  50/50 we wanted to give this young pup a fighting chance at a new life-heartworm free.

Unfortunately, his heart was not strong enough for the treatment and due to major complications, Rad passed over  the Rainbow Bridge today surrounded by his loving foster family.  Below is a loving  tribute to Rad from his foster family. If you would like to leave a flower in memory of Rad, you can click HERE to visit his Rainbow Bridge page.

We officially launched our Mercy Memorial Fund at our Rescues on the Runway event. For those who don’t know, Mercy was APRA’s first Pitbull who we rescued from animal control last year. She had a disease called Babesia which is common in neglected Pitbulls. After multiple treatments and blood transfusions, Mercy eventually succumbed to her disease.

But not before touching the lives of APRA staff and volunteers. This dog taught us about living in the moment, being happy in life and the true wonder of a Pitbull.

The Mercy Memorial fund was developed not only to honor Mercy’s life but also to help many future special needs animals. 100% of all money raised for this Read »
