Axel was brought to the Peace Regional SPCA as a stray after spending many weeks on the streets of Peace River. He has spent several months at the shelter, always the one with the loud, strong bark, but loveable and always had slobbery kisses for us staff members.
Axel has always been, "our boy," at the shelter. We always try to find our dogs the best home, but in Axel's case the perfect match never came along. Months passed and we started to notice his pent up energy from too much time spent in his kennel over the cold winter months, only taking him for walks on the warmer winter days. The shelter life becomes very stressful over time on all breeds of dogs and we knew this is not what we want for any dog, especially a breed like Axel.
We reached out to, "Pitbulls For Life," an organization that finds foster homes for Pitbulls until they get adopted. Pitbulls For Life has helped us in the past with a previous dog that was in our shelter for too long. They are a non profit organization that is dedicated to assisting other shelters in rehabilitating and helping to re home pitbulls that are abandoned or ones that are needing extra help in finding their perfect forever home.
The Peace Regional SPCA Staff are all about doing what is best for animals. We know what they need and how best to help them. That is why we were not afraid to ask for help. Some dogs are just not meant to be kennelled for too long. We want Axel to have the life he deserves. We have been his home and his family this far, we love this boy and as much as we are going to miss him, we know that with the help of Pitbulls For Life, he will be in his forever home before we know it!
So we would like to say a HUGE thank you to Pitbulls For Life, for extending a helping hand once again to the Peace Regional SPCA. Such an amazing and caring organization doing what we all do as animal lovers, putting an animals best interests above everything. 💕 #nokillshelter #nongovernmentfunded #peaceregionalspca #spca #shelter #goodbyesarehardtodo #love #ourboyaxel
