for phinn. rescue was created in honor of a playful, loyal and gentle pitbull-mix who stole my heart forever. She was found as a stray in Baltimore City, covered in pink dye, with broken bones in both rear legs. She was fostered for her medical needs and subsequently adopted by her foster family. She loved walks in the rain, bully sticks and sleeping on a shared pillow with her best pal, an eight-year-old boy.
Sadly, after several months, it became evident that sweet Phinn’s new family, complete with several other pets, was not a suitable fit for her behavior needs. The very difficult decision to surrender her back to the local shelter was ultimately made, with the hope that she could find a truly perfect forever home. But, upon surrender, despite positive notes from home, Phinn was labeled a “danger to the community” and humanely euthanized. Perfect, not quite; but a danger to the public, she absolutely was not.
Phinn was my canine soul-mate and her memory will never be forgotten. for phinn. is dedicated to saving the lives of animals with special medical and/or behavior considerations because every animal deserves a second chance.
