Say hello to Chesterfield!

Chesterfield was found outside of a local grocery store, trying to blend in with a feral colony. The difference is that he is not feral in the slightest! He happily strolled right into a carrier and one of our volunteers brought him straight to the veterinarian for evaluation. He was on the thin side and had intestinal parasites, but other than that proved to be in good health! He tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV, was fully vaccinated, dewormed, treated for ear mites, and placed on heartworm/flea/tick preventative. He has since been neutered and microchipped.

Though initially a little shy with the change in environment, Chesterfield has acclimated in foster care very well and mainly just wants human contact and love. He is ready for that forever home he was obviously so desperately looking for!

About Fortitudine Vincimus - The Fort Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The Fort is a Non-Profit, No-Kill Rescue dedicated to alleviating the suffering of all animals, in particular The American Pit Bull Terrier.

Serving animals in an area of North Carolina where well over 30,000 dogs enter into the local shelters every year. Sadly, the vast majority don’t stand a chance at life. Not only are they euthanized, but most suffer a horrific and inhumane death in antiquated, and many times not properly functioning, gas chambers.
“The Fort”-Fortitudine Vincimus Rescue Center, is a no kill, non-discriminatory rescue dedicated to alleviating the suffering of all dogs, in particular the American Pit Bull Terrier. This is an area where most dogs stand little to no chance of surviving once entering shelters, many of which have euthanasia rates of close to 90 percent. Entering the shelter, a Pit Bulls fate is all but sealed. Most local shelters refuse to allow them to be adopted and they are almost immediately euthanized more often than not.
We work with local shelters as well as many of the other foster based rescue groups in the area. We are currently in the process of trying to acquire a location, in order to help on a much larger scale by being the only rescue facility in an area that desperately needs help. We believe that every dog deserves a loving, caring home that will give them the best life possible, the life they deserve. We are avidly working towards improving the lives of all animals through education, promoting spaying and neutering to reduce overpopulation, thereby lowering shelters extremely high kill rates. Our focus is rescuing and adopting animals to loving homes that are looking to welcome a new member to the family. We believe in the humane treatment of all breeds and animals, no matter how large or small.
