The Humane Society has a car donation program, One Car One Difference, where you can donate a car (in any condition) and they will auction it off and use the proceeds for their anti-dog fighting efforts. Cool program but REALLY I’m posting this because that pic is just totally adorable! Isn’t it? The dog is all, “OMG YOU’RE SO AWESOME I LOVE YOU TELL ME MORE.”
But wait, there’s more cuteness. They have this adorbs story about a little boy and his pit:
Terrance and Elmo diverted from dogfighting
Elmo was about to be sent into the horrific world of dogfighting. His master, then 11-year old Terrance, had seen it before and didn’t understand that it was wrong. It was just what you did with your dogs.
But Elmo and Terrance are no longer on a path to dogfighting. In fact, they are now prime examples of how The Humane Society of the United States is ending dogfighting, one dog owner at a time.
Star students at dog training school
“When I first got Elmo, I was thinking about dogfighting,” says Terrance, now 13. “Then I ran into a man with a dog and a dog training school.”The man was from HSUS’ End Dogfighting program. He changed Terrance’s attitudes and behavior, and helped prevent Elmo from becoming a tragic victim.
Terrance continues. “I taught Elmo how to sit and stay and be a well behaved dog. Instead of teaching him the wrong thing, going out there and killing another dog, I’m teaching him the right thing, and encouraging him to be a good dog. He doesn’t mistreat me, and I don’t mistreat him.” The young dog trainer and responsible dog owner concludes, “Be great with your dog, and no dogfighting!”
Holy cannoli try not to die of adorable overload.
