Fighting for Tundra

Tundra was found in a field, extremely emaciated and having suffered incredible neglect and abuse. His muzzle was duct taped shut and he was left to starve. An RSV picked him up from the shelter and he was rushed to Animal Urgent  Care. He weighed in at a sickening 38 lbs and close to death. He is receiving around the clock care, as his body had basically began to shut down. He is on IV fluids and has gained 3 lbs since being checked in, though he is still having trouble keeping food down. He has a tube inserted through his nose to help relieve the gas in his stomach. We have not ruled out the possibility of a blockage but we are optimistic that he will overcome this. Despite the horrors this sweet boy has experienced at the hands of people, Tundra is still sweet and trusting. We are committed to showing Tundra the true meaning of unconditional love, something he has been sorely lacking. 
Thank you to everyone who has donated to his growing vet bills and to everyone who has shared his story! You can follow along with Tundra's progress on his personal Facebook and you can donate directly to his medical care through PayPal.
(Please note, at this time Tundra is not healthy enough to be available for adoption)

Military Bases Ban on Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mixes

Thank you for visiting our site. Military bases do not allow Pit Bulls or Pit Bull mixes to live on base.  Therefore, It's the Pits (ITP) will consider military families but there will be guidelines that must be met and we will decide on a case by case basis.  Since ITP does rescue mixed breed dogs some of our dogs will be allowed in base housing. We would like to extend an invitation to FOSTER one of our dogs at your home off base, while waiting deployment or transfer. Since our pitties need foster homes, and you want a pittie in your life, Fostering is a win-win combo. You'll have full responsibility of caring for your foster, while all medical costs would be taken care of by the Rescue Group. Our doggies need your love and devotion - there's no greater feeling than helping a pittie by giving them a temporary home, while preparing your foster dog for their next assignment - a permanent home.  If you have any questions about the on base ban, we suggest you speak to your Base Commander. Thank you.
