The Kitty Chronicles: One Dog’s Journey

Masthead_Kitty

Kitty is a dog from the case that we’ve come to know as the 367. In August of 2013, 367 dogs were seized in the second largest dogfighting bust in U.S. history. For more than a year, Kitty lived at the HSUS temporary shelter where, over time, she grew to trust staff and volunteers. After almost 400 days, her group had their day in court and Kitty was released. Hello Bully stepped up to take her in through the Humane Society of the United States’ Dogfighting Rescue Coalition. Kitty now lives at The Hello Bully Halfway House. Prior to her life in the HSUS temporary shelter, she only knew dirt and a chain. Kitty is a good dog who has a lot to learn. This is the story of her journey, as told by our rehab experts on the Hello Bully Behavior Team.
