GAME DOG GUARDIAN RESCUE's Fundraiser:

Titan's Boarding Costs

GAME DOG GUARDIAN RESCUE's Photo

THE STORY:

Titan's family was given 15 days to get him out of the city limits or he would be seized and impounded - not because he was a nuisance or harassed someone, not because he bit someone or another animal - it was just because he looked too much like a "pit bull." Titan's family lives in Bonner Springs, where "pit bulls" have been prohibited since the early 1980's, but Titan's family had no idea their city prohibited dogs based solely on appearance.

As time narrowed, Titan's family ran out of options. They contacted us and asked if we would consider Titan for our rescue program, so he could find a new home. We had a better idea.

What if we found funding for Titan's boarding, and kept him safe while we helped his family respectfully request the Bonner Springs city council to repeal the breed discriminatory law, and draft a more up to date, effective, and enforceable dangerous animal law that would proactively regulate dangerous animal behavior...?

After a heartfelt and analytical presentation to city council by Titan's family, the council agreed to revisit their animal laws. Today, a task force has been formed and they are getting closer to presenting a new ordinance to council that could be a breed-neutral, behavior-based law for animals in the city.

We're asking for your help to cover a portion of the cost of Titan staying in a boarding facility while the council considers a new law. The boarding facility has given us a huge discount, but we still need to pay for a portion of what has become a 3 months stay.

If all of this isn't heartbreaking enough, Titan's family comes to the boarding facility with their lawn chairs every single weekend and sits with him for hours. They will continue to drive over an hour round trip every weekend so Titan knows they still love him and they're fighting for him.
