Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue is a wonderful rescue in Georgia that is Atlanta based. That does not stop Jason Flatt from working just about all of Georgia and even then some. Jason has a great network of fosters and friends that have helped him along the way. It is with these connections that so many dogs have been helped by the hands of Jason Flatt. Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue not only helps injured, sick, and perfectly well pitbulls and other breeds but it also helps educate kids and people on better ways of taking care of their dogs. Jason goes into underprivileged areas of Atlanta that are prone to dog fighting and helps spread the good word to not participate in those activities. He also helps provide spay /neuter and vaccinations for the dogs as well. This helps the community that otherwise would not receive it, thus creating more unwanted dogs and more shelters having to euthanize pit bulls. Jason Flatt has created the “Tails in the Hood” explaining about his adventures with saving pitbulls to show the community as well as others around the U.S. just what he does. He wants people to understand the importance of their actions. Actions speak louder than words so spay and neuter your pets.
Here is the “Tails in the Hood” from 7/24/11 in his own words:
Very busy weekend and a very hot weekend. Please make sure your pets are kept cool and have plenty of fresh water!!!! Do not leave your dogs inside cars without the AC running.
First off, The Online Facebook Auction raised $4580.00. I can’t thank True Spain enough for organizing every little detail. You did an amazing job! Thanks to everyone who contributed an item, placed a bid or who shared the event with friends. We will be having another one in November and hope to double the proceeds.
Saturday was the Terminus City Motorcycle Ride to End Dogfighting. Really a nice event. Thanks to Chris Mattox for putting the event together and a big thank you to all involved. Whether you rode, sat on a committee, fund raised or just came out to show your support, I appreciate you. Thanks to all the rescue groups that participated.
Tails in the Hood will be helping to feed and spay a female pitbull today. Thanks Marcia for the transport and all your support. We appreciate you. Tails in the Hood is a program that we have created to educate people on proper pitbull ownership. We reach out and provide people with vaccines, crates, leashes, collars, food, heartworm and flea preventative and offer free spay and neuter which often includes transportation. This program is vital to the Atlanta area. Our goal is to reduce the number of pitbulls dying in the pounds and on the streets through education. We need your support. All donations are tax deductible. We reach out to people who really need to be reached. We are not your average rescue group. All donations are tax deductible.
Little Stormy the German Shepherd pup, is getting adopted today. True and I found her in the middle of the road during a nasty thunderstorm. It took us two hours to catch her, but she is going to her forever home. Live long and live well Stormy, We love you.
Little Olive went on a foster to adopt home a few weeks back. She’s a keeper as her new family is going to be making it official this week. Thanks Don and Karen for giving her a great foster home and getting her ready for her new forever family.
Big Doris is doing very well in her new forever home. Her new family has given her a new name and a new start. Her name is now Georgia and she is doing fantastic.
Friends to the Forlorn has some great clothing Items available. T-shirts are available for men and women. We have also created our own clothing line called RescueWear. We started with women’s tank tops. It’s a really simple concept. These clothes save lives. Every cent that is made from the sale of our clothes, goes back into our rescue. Check it out and tell a friend. We hope to expand the clothing line soon. Check it out here.
Here is the “Tails in the Hood” from 7/25/11 in his own words:
We had some heavy rains here last night, but we had a Tails in the Hood mission to complete. A few weeks back, we treated Spyder’s puppy Princess for Parvo. She made it, so it was important to get over there and vaccinate her. She is looking pretty good. Spyder’s cousin has been keeping an American Bulldog/Pit mix named Pico at the house.
Spyder’s cousin did not want to fix him. I have been after Spyder for a good two months to get that dog fixed. I went over and had vaccinated both Pico and Princess. Thanks to our friend Krissy, we were also able to bring a few bags of dog food over for Spyder. I was able to convince Spyder to let us neuter Pico and spay Princess. That’s two more!! Check out the video of the Pico getting vaccinated.
Next we went around the corner to check on Glock. Glock is the Cane Corso Shepherd mix that we treated after he got hit by the car. He was neutered a few weeks back. We also fixed his Mom, Dad and little brother. I brought his owner Larry some food as well. Glock needed his booster for his parvo etc., and that’s all taken care of now. There is a junk yard on the end of North Ave. Around 20 dogs roam the yard and the streets that surround the yard. I spoke with Larry about it. He is pretty friendly with the owner. I asked him to see if we could get in there and fix these dogs. He called me this am, and we have permission to get them vaccinated and fixed. We just need to figure out how we are going to do it. It needs to be done. These dogs just keep having litter after litter. Where there is a will, there’s a way. Like always…. we will get it done.
