It's a barn raising! Okay – there aren't really any Amish involved, but walls are going up and it's going to be awesome. Bad Rap, the Bay Area-based, pit-bull-saving nonprofit is trying to raise $100,000 to build a safe house of sorts for rescued pit bulls. The facility (which would include a converted horse barn and a large exercise area) would temporarily house dogs they pull from abusive or inhumane situations to rest and recover before entering foster care. Sounds pretty FAN-tastic.
The people at Bad Rap are the real deal, and I've admired them from afar for a long time. I can't think of many organizations I'd rather give my dog-saving dollars to.
