We could go on forever about this little girl. The first week of 2013 the Unwanted team saw a
video from ACC that broke
their hearts. They saw a very sick but incredibly loving girl named Sweetness who appeared to be a "throw away mom"...
Khloe was one of the thousands of Pit Bulls surrendered to ACC.
Her family simply “no longer wanted her” and there she was, discarded like an old shoe. Khloe was on the super urgent list and destined for death's door.
He was not a family member, but a junkyard dog. Rocky was in a small yard that was covered with old car

Bottle babies are very difficult for shelters to place because not many rescue groups have the experience or the time needed to bottle feed. Sadly, 75% of bottle babies that end up at the shelter are put down.
Jack Sparrow's story is the reason we are in rescue. His is a story of strength, the will to live, the power of love and fate. Jack was found in Staten Island under a woman named Carol's car.
