Recently while away on work I received a phone call from my wife saying my son had ran away (100 lb blue nose Pitt bulls). I was in New York & resided in Miami. I immediately got in a rental & drove 17 hrs to begin the tedious process of attempting to find my baby. I know first hand (I've ran two separate animal shelters)how missinformed society is towards the breed. I was terrified for him that he was all alone in the middle of hurricane season. I spent thousands between ads,posters,printouts, & social media firms to keep his picture and my phone number circulating. I drove everyday from sun up to sun down checking on leads from individuals calling me to say they found my son, or going to various animal shelters. Me being an animal lover that journey is what put me on my path to help reunite families in the easiest ways possible. What I saw daily in these shelters broke my heart. To see the pain they were clearly living with. The fear,the loneliness & to see first hand most shelters either didn't care enough or weren't qualified enough to ease their burden. I would leave each of them bawling and wishing of something I can do more. In that pursuit I've attempted to make the process more humane & more in tune with the times. Instead of piling all these animals into cells living and eating amidst their own feces, I've purchased land that enables me to allow them to live free with love & care. I've integrated technology into the process of either reuniting families or finding these precious souls a forever home. While they are here they receive any vetinary care necessary. They are loved & gave room to roam. They swim,play with other animals from horses to cows etc. However this is an expensive process. Luckily I run a security firm & normally get paid well. However during this pandemic it's basically eliminated my normal resources. I'm trying this here because I'm feeling a little hopeless but anything I can do to make an effort will be attempted. It's a tough time in the world. But God willing people can embrace their humanity. For me I come from a environment that I felt hopeless quite often. My babies helped pull me through. They provided me light when nothing else would. The least I can do and we as people can attempt is to show them the same love. God bless & be safe in the current climate we live in.
