He came in to K-9 Karma Animal Advocates rescue as a battered bait dog with the name Lucky. That was a year ago come Sunday, Aug. 24. Now he's "Ducky," has his own Facebook page, a home of his own, and he is the mascot for the K-9 Karma Pit Bull rescue division. He's inviting people of all sizes to his party (no dogs please, as sometimes he's not so great with other dogs), 6 pm at Edgemoor Park, 9th and Edgemoor in Wichita.
While it sounds a bit pretentious to have a "division,", when you have volunteers who are willing to help, to foster, to help ask for money, and will do their darndest to rescue Pit Bulls (and other breeds) at risk of being killed, you add a division. Lead by Curt Farrington, K-9 Karma Animal Advocates is an all-breed rescue. Of late, they have been stepping up for several medical needs dogs to tag them out of the Wichita Animal Shelter to keep them from being euthanized. On top of that, the rescue currently has 12 puppies. Of these, eight are only two weeks old and four are 11 months old.
One of the pups recently came down with Parvo, the rescue has been caring for disabled Axle a mastiff mix pup who was unable to use his back legs, Brutus and Skye came in heartworm positive and are being treated, Skye also arrived with mange, three of the rescues need dental work, and, of course, the puppies all need their shots. Caring for all the medical cases has depleted the rescue's funds.
