Candidate #8; Pippa
My name is Pippa and I am a pit bull. Six years ago I was found on the street fighting for my life when a human found me and rushed me to Salt Lake County Animal Services where I was then rushed to the hospital. I had been sliced opened and used for bait for dog fighting. After being stitched up and cared for I was released to go to a new foster home where I met my family.
I eventually started going to work with my human. I became "the store dog" of The Dog's Meow. Every day I greet people and help them shop for the best pet treats and food. Some of them even spoil metreats out with of the treat jars. Because I am a pit bull we sometimes have customers who are afraid of me. But I am always patient with them and have helped some get over their fears.
I love being a part of the pet community here in Salt Lake.
Every dollar raised by Pippa’s campaign will go into the Injured Animal Fund. Help homeless animals heal so they can find a HOME!
