2016 Year End Update from BRIT

Dear fellow Brittany lover,

It’s heartbreaking to find Brittanys who no longer have a home, a place where there’s always shelter, food, love, attention, special treats, playtime … where they are treasured members of the family.

We believe all Brittanys deserve a chance to have a loving forever home. In addition to rescuing healthy Brittanys, we’ve pledged to save ALL Brittanys including the elderly, abused, abandoned, pregnant, and those facing euthanasia due to severe injuries. (See examples on back.)

Some believe these severe cases are not worth spending the money to save them.

We disagree.

If you feel the same way and believe these sweet playful companions deserve a chance at a new life, support us with your tax-deductible donation:  http://www.paypal.me/brittanyrescuetexas

Why your donation is so vital:

  • We never know how many “special needs” Brittanys we’ll bring in at any given time
  • Shelters don’t have the funding to vet injured animals so they depend on rescue organizations like BRIT to step up
  • The cost to vet a Brittany with special needs can range from $3,000 to $5,000+ each
  • If it weren’t for BRIT, the odds are high that many Brittanys in shelters would be put down
  • Our adoption fees don’t always cover necessary vetting (some have special needs)
  • The average cost of heartworm treatment is $400+
  • BRIT is run by volunteers; all donations go to saving Brittanys (and we keep our costs low)

Our hearts go out to this special breed and we’ve made it our mission to save as many as humanly possible in Texas. Unfortunately, it takes more dollars than we have to rescue, vet, foster, and rehabilitate all of these loveable Brittanys so they can find forever homes.

We couldn’t do this work without your financial support.

Thank you so much for helping us help them!

Precious after 1 week of 24/7 care at the Emergency Clinic. 

Precious came to BRIT near death. The vet stated she was just a day away from death’s door. With the help of our BRIT Rescue Angels we were able to save her life. She is now in her forever home, living the best life possible: happy, sassy, and chasing squirrels !

When we rescued Dani from a shelter in San Antonio, she was in terrible condition: emaciated, starving, and barely clinging to life. She almost lost her leg due to the severity of her injuries. Now she is living the high life with the vet tech who cared for her in the hospital.

“Pebbles” After

PEBBLES '16 - from Longview  injured leg  7-12-16 

Pebbles was dropped off at a shelter with her right rear leg shattered by a gunshot.  The shelter didn’t have the resources to care for her and she would have been put down if BRIT hadn’t rescued her. She required two surgeries and several months of rehabilitation before she could go to a foster home.
