This is Cowboy.
Cowboy was a 15-year old pit bull with cancer dumped at the shelter. Pit bulls have a difficult time making it out of the shelter alive. Old pit bulls with cancer? Have little to no chance.
Enter Angel City Pit Bulls, who made sure an older gentleman like Cowboy got to spend his final days in a warm, soft bed surrounded by family and love and home cooked meals.
That’s why on March 9th, I’m running in the LA Marathon (my first marathon!) as part of Angel City Pit Bulls’ team. I’m running to raise money for Angel City so they can continue to rescue, to adopt, to spay/neuter, and to educate the public about pit bulls.
And so that older dogs will get the same chance as Cowboy for a kind and loving place to call home for those final days.
I know times are tough and there are a lot of people asking you for money. No amount is too small. Five bucks! It’s a cup of fancy coffee, but it can make a difference. You can click the link above to get to my donation page, or if you don’t want to scroll back up, click here.
If you could reblog and get this in front of more people, I know that together we can help a lot of dogs.
Thank you for reading, and thank you for your support. I and the old pit bull that I live with appreciate it.

Daisy is one of my favorite dogs. Nina is one of my favorite people.
