Hans, found abandoned with his sister, hasn't found his forever home yet and is currently in boarding at U.S. Canine. His supporters have been great, but our funds have run out! We need your help to give us more time to find a forever home for this sweet boy.

Hans is a one year old American Pit Bull Terrier, and was abandoned with his sister in an parking lot in Atlanta one freezing, rainy night in February 2013. Thanks to our generous supporters, both were thoroughly vetted and spayed/neutered. A foster home was found for Heidi right away and turned into her forever home where she is thriving with her mom, dad and fur-brother Bruiser.

On March 8, Hans went to boarding and began a three week “boot camp” training program at U.S. Canine, a highly respected training facility, where he learned social skills and doggy manners. He recently graduated from the training program and continues to live there, enjoying life and playing with pups of all sizes who attend daycare there. As you can see in the photos, he's a happy little guy who can relax in the pack.

While this is a great environment, it is not free. Hans has a team of supporters who love him and have generously funded his care, food and boarding for the past few months but the funds are now gone. We urgently need your help to fund his care and boarding while we continue to work on finding a foster or adopter. U.S. Canine is working with us and discounting the usual rates to keep him there (and out of a cheaper boarding option of 24 hours in a crate which isn't good for any dog) because they too have fallen in love with him, want to do what they can to keep him out of prolonged crating, and refuse to give up on him.

We really need you to give anything you can. If you can’t give, please share this Fundrazr. If you'd prefer to bypass using Fundrazr, you may also send donations directly through You Lucky Dog Rescue, which will be tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for your 2013 taxes. If you send through Paypal, is crucial that you label your donations as "For boarding fees for Hans at U.S. Canine" since You Lucky Dog Rescue has dozens of dogs in their care. The Paypal address is tabitha@youluckydogrescue.org.

If you have any questions about how to proceed with making a donation, or if you are interested in fostering or adopting (or know of a foster or adopter for Hans), please email me at skellet@emory.edu. Thank you VERY MUCH for any support you may offer!!
