Calista - Rhode Island's Story...
Located in Rhode Island


Introducing Calista!!! In early February, authorities raided a property in NJ. You can read more about that here: You will see in the article that dogfighting was not mentioned. Authorities did not want attention drawn to the dogs, especially since a few of the suspects fled with one remaining dog -- that dog would later come to be known as Calista. As we said the initial raid was in February. Authorities were not able to rescue Calista on that day, but her day would come couple of months later. When authorities returned for the suspects, they still had Calista with them. Her rescuers watched Calista run free during the apprehension and run up to dogs on an adjoining property. Was she looking for comfort? We don't know, but what they could see was that Calista was social with other dogs! Calista was emaciated and dirty. She was taken to the CCSPCA and wrapped in love. She had volunteers showing her the joys of a baby pool, good food and toys. Calista seemed to have never been on a leash, she zigs and zags and runs under foot. That's ok, she will learn. We are proud to have brought Calista into foster care here at Handsome Dan's Rescue. Calista's foster parents, Mark and Delores will help Calista learn how to live in a home as part of a family. They will pour their love and devotion into her as they have with those who came before. And when she is ready, healthy and whole, they will selflessly let her go to live out her happily ever after. Welcome to Handsome Dan's Rescue, Calista. Welcome to safety, love, to a full belly, to a warm bed. Welcome to the life you should have had from the start.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Calista - Rhode Island, a Fulton Pit Bull Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Fulton, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier puppy from a breeder in Fulton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Fulton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Fulton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Fulton paves the way for another one to be saved.
