From the beginning of planning our business, we knew that giving back to the community would be an essential part. We’re passionate about eliminating pit bull fighting, and we also wanted to help a children’s hospital.
We searched online and chose to support the three non-profit 501c3 organizations listed below that positively impact in our community. As a small business, our monthly donations are small, however, they are continuous. We hope to inspire others to do the same; every little bit helps. Our donations are being made in Memory of our son Matthew and in Honor of our son Daniel.
Their websites are listed below for those who would like to donate and lend their support;
Pickens Animal Rescue, Inc. – www.pickensanimalrescue.org
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta – give.choa.org
C.A.R.E.S – www.caresforpickens.com
Short story on how we obtained our fur babies. One day Matthew came home with a puppy. I asked him what breed of dog it was; he informed me it was a pit bull. I told him I had heard bad things about their breed so he should take it back to the owners. He convinced me bad owners were the problem and not the breed. The owners trained the parent dogs (Sampson and Delilah) and took extremely goo care of them; he said they were smart and sweet. Daniel went with Matthew to the owners and picked a puppy for himself. We ended up with two pit bull puppies, which turned out to be an incredible experience for our family. Our dogs were a part of our family, not just pets. Matthew’s dog Alaster had an aneurysm in the backyard and was put to sleep in December 2006. Daniel’s dog Ifirit lived the longest out of the whole litter; she was put to sleep on September 11, 2015. Our dogs have did way more for us than we could have ever done for them! Ifirit was a beautiful pit bull, see her picture below.
In memory of Ifirit Louise Branton.
In 2012 Daniel went to Pet Smart to get fish food; they had animal adoptions at the entrance that day. He asked the adoption lady to walk a dog barking in a cage; she told him the dog was a last chance rescue because no one wanted to adopt her; she was part pit bull. Daniel had experience with pit bulls and asked to walk her. He went home with fish food and Denali Ann; she hit the lottery that day! The truth is we hit the lottery, she is precious and we love her very much! See Denali’s picture below:
