ALBANY, N.Y. — Will, a six-month-old Pit Bull puppy, was miraculously able to survive being poisoned twice even though his owner decided he wasn’t important enough to save. Thanks to Out Of The Pits rescue, Will is surrounded by a family who makes sure he is number one.
The first time Will found himself in trouble , he had eaten a lot of rat poison and his owner didn’t have enough money to take him to the vet. Luckily for Will, his owner’s friends chipped in and brought him to the emergency animal clinic in Albany.
Even though Will was in rough shape, he pulled through and was able to go home again.
Two weeks later, the same thing happened again.
Will got himself into an entire bottle of medication. This time his owner decided to go to a basketball game and his friends weren’t willing to give Will another chance. They bundled him up and brought him back to the vet to be euthanized.
The clinic knew how serious this situation was and gave Out Of The Pits, a pit bull rescue in upstate New York, a call.
Cydney Cross, president of Out of the Pits, headed straight to the clinic late that night to assess the situation and to see how Will was doing. She knew she had to take Will under her wing and, thankfully, Will’s owner officially surrendered him.
“He needed more plasma and still his chances were slim. The estimate for his treatment was steep,” Cross told The Dodo. “He was a great young dog handling the treatment very well and easy on the staff. They really wanted to save him and gratefully they were willing to work with us.”
Cross explained to The Dodo that she normally doesn’t like putting up GoFundMe sites but decided she had to because felt very strongly about Will. She knew she needed the community to rally together.
With a lot of love, a little care and a new foster family, Will’s regained his health and was ready to be adopted to a new family who would never put him aside.
