Last week on Hockey and Hounds, Anthony Rothman and Coach Tortorella shared the great news that people now have a right to rescue a minor child or animal they deem in danger in a locked car.

The Tortorella Family Foundation received a heartbreaking request to rehome a sweet, special needs pittie who lives in Ohio. If anyone can help, we’d be very grateful as would his family. Bane is two-year-old paraplegic dog who is terrific with dogs and cats and adores his two little human sisters who call him “Bean”. Due to financial reasons, his family cannot keep him. It is obvious that they provide him with lots of love and excellent care. They would like Bane to go to a good home or rescue that can provide him with the therapy he needs to strengthen his muscles. He is UTD on all vaccines and has been neutered. Please share Bane’s story far and wide.

I LOVE LUCY!
How could you not adore this sweet-faced, boxer-pit mix? Lucy was found living in deplorable conditions with a fever and multiple wounds from being chained. Thankfully, she was rescued by Scioto Area Humane Society of Ohio and taken to a veterinarian. Lucy has given birth to a few litters and needs to be spayed. She is about 3 years-old and is staying with a foster. Lucy is great with kids of all ages but doesn’t understand how to behave with other dogs, so it would be best if she was the only dog in the house. If you are interested in meeting this love-bug and giving her story a happy ending, please call Linda Kennedy Patrick with the Scioto Humane Society at 740-352-3339.
