THERE is a Pit Bull named Amigo who loves his ball even though it's already been destroyed long time ago.
It is a yellow tennis ball that has seen better days.
Amigo doesn't mind that his old ball is now cracked, frayed and, to be honest, quite disgusting. Throw it and he would run after it, retrieve it with his mouth and deliver it back to you. Be ready to pick up the repulsively dirty ball and throw it in the air a couple of times until Amigo gets tired of playing with it, which is unlikely.
Crusted with dirt and broken beyond repair, the old ball gives Amigo a sense of purpose.
Amigo is one of the Laguna Pit Bulls rescued from a dog fighting syndicate about five years ago. He is now fully rehabilitated and waiting for his forever home. While doing that, he and other Laguna Pit Bulls take turns playing with this one ball at the shelter's designated dog-run area.
Poor Amigo his tennis ball is long overdue for replacement!
Would you be kind enough to get Amigo and his friends a new ball or two, preferably made from indestructible material? It would mean the world to Amigo who's been a sweet boy, so “bigyan ng bola”!! ("Give him a ball"!!)
Kindly donate treats, dog food and a new ball for Amigo and his 79 other friends through CARA Welfare Philippines. We would also be happy to assist, just send us a note in MetroPets Facebook page.
