Four pit bulls are recuperating in Port Jefferson, N.Y. after they were discovered abandoned last week and left alone in outside kennels in Mastic. The dogs survived by eating snow.
Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue is currently caring for the dogs who have all been named in honor of St. Patrick's Day; there's Blarney, Clover, Shamrock and Patty. The dogs had been repeatedly bred, and when their owners left town, the dogs were abandoned in their isolated prisons.
According to Save-A-Pet News, Dori Scofield, president and founder of Save-A-Pet said the dogs were living in filthy conditions.
“Even though they were imprisoned in filthy conditions, starving, and riddled with sores, they greeted us with wagging tails. That’s the amazing thing about this breed and something that most people don’t understand. Aside from being resilient, they respond so positively to love and proper treatment.”
All of the dogs are under three years old. After they have gained weight, recuperated from parasites and body sores, and are spayed or neutered, they will all be available for adoption.
To celebrate the 'Fab Four,' the public is cordially invited to a St.Pitty's Day party on Saturday, March 16 - from 12-5 p.m. For a $10 donation, come and enjoy an Irish buffet and get to meet the playful pit bulls. Click here for more details.
