Meet Odin the American Pit Bull Terrier – A Pet Pardons Emergency Pet of the Day
Covina, California – The Pet Pardons organization released an urgent bulletin Friday asking the public for their help in finding a home for Odin, a two-year-old male American Pit Bull Terrier who is currently under extreme duress and in unbearable pain from an injury that has left him blind and with a fractured cornea and protruding lens without treatment at the Covina shelter he is currently housed at.
Odin is in a desperate situation not of his own making, and because resources are extremely slim in his shelter his wounds go relatively unattended and his pain goes unmedicated while he sits in a cement cell waiting for the nightmare to end. Odin’s eye is getting worse and he is barely able to open it at this point and the lens in his eye has started to protrude more with each passing day. His silent suffering has been witnessed by thousands on the Pet Pardons application and it’s the goal of that community that his pain stops today.
Members of the Pet Pardons community are given daily Facebook bulletins and updates, allowing them to share the stories of pets in need or even take direct action to adopt or donate money to save the life of the pet. The reasons for how these animals end up in shelters are as numerous as the reasons why there are so many dedicated volunteers working hard every day to save innocent lives.
The Pet Pardons Facebook application has been responsible for the successful adoption of over 10,000 pets since its launch in December of 2010 and has amassed over 360,000 followers on Facebook who are ready to help advocate for an animal in need at a moment’s notice.
Pet Pardons allows its members to help pets by clicking the “Advocate” button on each pet’s profile, which places the pet’s bulletin on the user’s wall, allowing others to see the pet and advocate for it. As the number of shares increases, so do the chances of the pet being viewed by someone who can help or adopt.
Odin is obviously in a state that would make him unadoptable to most pet seekers, but he has his hopes high that someone with the right sized heart and the right shaped soul will come along and lift him out of the terrible circumstances he is in and get him the treatment and recovery that the needs.
In order to do so, a Chip In event has been created for him that will send 100% of the proceeds to the person who adopts him to go towards his medical bills and his recovery. To help Odin, simple follow the link below and make a secure donation:
Pet Pardons educates the public about pet overpopulation, focusing on the importance of adoption and spay/neuter. By shining a light on the reality for shelter pets, people are becoming aware of the problem, and therefore, getting involved in the solution. As each amazing pet is featured, users are able to see their faces, connect with their stories, and advocate to save their lives.
Pet and animal advocacy can sometimes be a very emotional process. Volunteers place animals into the Pet Pardons application in hopes that they will be adopted into loving homes, not so that the shelters will be targeted and harassed. Please help the pets by not engaging in this type of behavior, as it hurts them far more than it helps them.
Odin currently has 1335 advocates on the Pet Pardons application, and could use a lot more, especially those who would be willing to supply transportation to a new forever home if needed.
