WE DID IT! You all voted for and helped me become Bethpage’s Best of Long Island BEST MASCOT 2019!!!!!!!! Thank you all so much. I will do my best to fulfill my duties as a rescue mascot, sanctuary mascot, Ambassadog Treat mascot, pit bull mascot, well geesh……..could I have any more Mascot responsibilities??????
Hailey is a rescue from Virginia. Odessa Rescue pulled her mother and siblings from the shelter and found a foster home. Mommy n Daddy found her posted on petfinder and took a ride to Virginia to pick her up. They had never had a pittie and could not understand the problems people have with our breed. After adopting Hailey, they knew for sure that people just believe what they hear and have never actually met a pit bull. Thank you Hailey for being you!
In 2013 I married the Love of My Life, Hailey. We had a huge ceremony in our backyard with over 100 guests and raised over $5000 for rescue all whilst enjoying the best day of our lives. We spent the next 4 years together continuing our quest to: help as many animals as we can, raise awareness for shelter, abused & neglected animals, help give Pit Bulls a good reputation, remind people of the importance of spaying and neutering and basically showing everyone that Life is Better with A Dog or 2 or 3 or 4………!!!!!!!
In January 2017 My Beautiful Wife was diagnosed with bone cancer. She had her leg amputated in the hopes that she could live somewhat of a normal life, cancer free but unfortunately it had spread. The next 8 months are a blur as I had to watch my life fall apart around me and my Hails slowly deteriorate from that horrible disease. I got to love her for 7 amazing years and spent her last moments by her side and for that I am forever grateful but life will never be the same……..a huge part of my heart was taken with her when she left. I do believe this is where the phrase “Pit Bull Strong” comes in because as hard as it is without her……..I am still continuing what we started……proving to the world that Pit Bulls are just like any other dog and raising awareness and $ for shelter animals!
We have started a rescue foundation, Peace Love -n- Rescue Angels with our Aunt Marie, Angel Ru, Oliver n Sienna, Aunt Linda, Aunt Dena n Aunt Candise so we can help as many animals as we can! We know what shelter life is like an do not wish for any animal to have to see the inside of one but we want to be here to help them as much as we can. We are Rescue Ambassadogs and will continue to do as much as we can for the homeless furbabies. We also are helping Mommy with her new, fun, stay at home job…….baking healthy treats for us furbabies. We are the official taste testers and will personally guarantee that all of our treats are made with all natural ingredients and love!
Every year we participate, along with several other Pit Bull pages, in the annual Monster Elf Drive run by http://imnotamonster.org/. During the last few months of the year we collect as many items as we can to deliver to a local animal shelter and the sanctuary for the holidays. Last year we were able to gather over $10,000 worth of items to deliver! We could never do it without all of our awesome friends and family. http://imnotamonster.org/work/titus-hailey-islip-terrace-ny/
Since Mommy lost her job of 25 years she has continued baking dog treats and also started working at a local sanctuary, http://www.safeandsoundsanctuary.org/. We have become somewhat of mascots for them raising funds and collecting much needed items to help keep the sanctuary running and the animals healthy and safe! My sisters even get to go to a playgroup every Friday!
We have accomplished so much in the last 7 years and will continue to do so as long as I am here on earth. I have been nominated in Bethpage’s Best of Long Island Contest in the Mascot category. Make sure you click the link at the top of the page and vote for me daily! Fankie yous!
