“Luv-A-Bull all Breed Rescue” has been in existence for more than 20 years servicing the South Florida Region.
Their dedication and diligence has been instrumental in rescuing hundreds of dogs from death row and placing them in permanent homes. They do not take in owner surrendered pets, only dogs from high kill shelters. They specialize in taking in the hardship cases, those not seen by the public because they have mange, injuries or no chance of being adopted. These deserving animals are placed into permanent, loving families to provide their forever homes.
2012 was a very successful year for Luv-a-Bull as they were able to adopt out over 60 dogs that came from very unhappy beginnings. Many of them came to the rescue with broken limbs, mange, bites, cuts, heartworms and a death sentence hanging over their heads. So many bruised and battered both physically and emotionally. However, with the right amount of medical attention, food and a lot of love they have learned to trust humans again.
One of the more heart wrenching rescue stories features “Faith” who was physically abused by her owner to the degree that her skin was coming off. She was then left abandoned on the streets lonely and in pain. She was picked up by Animal Control and then taken in by Luv-a-Bull rescue. They named her Faith because everyone had faith that this sweet girl would recover. Faith and the members of Luv-a-Bull rescue kept the “faith” and helped her dreams of finding a forever home come true. She was adopted and even has her own brother!! She got her second chance at life.
Some other miracle stories by Luv-a-Bull rescue include Stevie a stray found in West Hollywood, Florida who was born with a defect known as microphthalmia causing blindness from birth. How this dog managed to survive on his own is a miracle. Stevie was adopted by a volunteer and now lives in the middle of the OcalaNational Forest on a fenced in acre with six other dogs and a cat. He absolutely loves the other dogs and interacts with them as much as possible using his ears and nose to guide him and quickly learned how to navigate.
Jake, a rescued bait dog whose previous life consisted of him being thrown into a ring and attacked by aggressive fighting dogs. When he was finally saved from this nightmarish existence he was starved, skinny and sick. Jake still remained a gentle soul with a sweet disposition despite all of the suffering inflicted on him. Today Jake lives happily with his adopted family in the Florida Keys. He loves kids and other dogs and trips to the dog park.
Luv-A-Bull has done so much good for others and saved so many lives over the span of two decades; now they have a unique opportunity for someone to do something nice for them.
A deceased family member of a Luv-A-Bull friend and volunteer left behind a large piece of property (13 acres) that the surviving family wants to donate to Luv-a-Bull rescue. The family does not have the means to keep the land for themselves and would rather see it go to an animal rescue. It is located in Putnam County, Florida and would be ideal for an animal sanctuary. It would allow for the building of more kennels and fenced in areas to house even more rescued dogs and hold dogs for other rescues. They would also be able to take dogs from overpopulated areas to other parts of the state and country looking for adoptable dogs.
They would have the means to rescue other animals such as goats, horses, etc.and plan to have a caretaker live right on the site.
Nearby Putnam County Animal Control would benefit immensely from this rescue. Currently their rescue sits at the end of a road near a landfill. They have zero visibility to the public thus decreasing their adoption capabilities. If Luv-a-Bull builds their 13 acre sanctuary the dogs from PutnamCounty would have a safe haven to go to until they can be re-homed.
There is only one catch to all of this good news; Luv-a-Bull will have to pay $16,000.00 in back taxes to keep the property. However, this obstacle is not insurmountable. If 1000 people each donated 20.00, they would be able to pay the taxes and start building the new sanctuary.
Please, don’t let Luv-a-Bull all breed rescue lose this golden opportunity to expand their reach and help even more dogs get a second chance at life. The benefits will be long lasting
