My story

Intake Date: 15 June 2022 ----- Age at intake: 8-9 yrs ----- Breed: Molly Mule -- ----- Status: Kill Pen save ----- Suitable for: Pasture Pet home. Needs companion animals, does get worked up when alone ----- Medical/Behavioral Needs: Underweight. Lame on rear right leg. Grade 2 Heart Murmur ----- Additional Notes: Welcome Ruth! This girl is a big and BEAUTIFUL kind soul. She has such a gentle spirit. She came to rescue from a kill pen and was saved in the nick of time. She arrived very sore on one back foot and the farrier tended to her right away. She had an abscess in the hoof and the rest of her hooves needed maintenance as well. The vet is unsure if the injury is her hoof or her stifle so time will tell as we tend to her. She will likely be a great companion animal and pasture pet. She has shown us nothing but a gentle spirit even in pain and was a doll for the farrier too. She will likely never be suitable for work or riding, but she's still a best friend! Please follow her journey as we prepare to get her available for adoption.

More about this rescue

For Belle's Sake Rescue & Rehabilitation is founded by Christian and Shelby who are active duty military and volunteer their mornings, evenings, and weekends caring for 60+ dogs and cats rescued from high kill animal shelters who are waiting for their forever homes. "We started rescue in 2005 in SC and have been saving lives ever since. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and love but for us, it is a family affair! Our four young children share the same passion for animals and helping and we are blessed to have them sharing the experience and are excited to continue efforts in North Dakota!" - Shelby, President of For Belle's Sake Rescue & Rehabilitation, Inc Everything we do, we do For Belle's Sake BELLE'S STORY Belle, a dog rescued by Christian and Shelby, sits in the field where she was found in Sumter S.C., April 1, 2012. Belle suffered alone in the field for five days; she was malnourished and had open wounds and fire ants across her body before the family rescued her. She died hours after being rescued. In honor of her, the couple started “For Belle’s Sake Rescue and Rehabilitation,” an animal rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and pet watching service. ​ In honor of a particularly memorable rescue, a dog named Belle, Christian and Shelby started "For Belle's Sake Rescue and Rehabilitation," an animal rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and pet watching service. Belle was a pit bull mix, or pibble. Belle passed away April 1, 2012, hours after being rescued. She died from complications resulting from maltreatment. When the Birds received a call to rescue her, she was in critical condition. They found her on the side of a road, malnourished, with open wounds and fire ants on her body. "We got a phone call in the late afternoon about a dog who had been hit by a car," Shelby explained. "A woman was at a stop sign, looked over into a grassy field and saw a head peering over the grass. So she walked out into the field and found Belle laying there." "Belle couldn't stand and was surrounded by cans of dog food and chicken. She was covered in red ants, which had to have been very painful. We brought her home and set her up in a crate. When we carried her into the house, I flipped her over and her wounds were terrible," she continued. "We immediately called an EMT to come evaluate her since the nearest after hours vet clinic was in Columbia at the time. It was then that I named her Belle." "She had two shattered back legs, a broken back, all of the skin and muscle was missing from her hind legs from road rash, and she was in organ failure," Shelby explained "We knew if we tried to save her, it would be a long and painful process and she more than likely would not survive it. She needed blood transfusions and both hind legs amputated. The EMT said she was in shock and her body was shutting down.""He said her wounds appeared to be at least five days old," Shelby said. "Meaning she suffered that duration alone in excruciating pain." "Someone knew she was there because they were trying to feed her," she continued. "But no one helped.""The entire time he was evaluating her, her tail was wagging," she said. "I knelt before her, held out my hands, and asked a very simple question. 'Belle, what do you want?'"She rested her head in the palm of my hands and closed her eyes," she explained. "Her breathing got slow and she told me she was ready to go."
