The Postman and The Pit Bull

The Postman and The Pit Bull

“She is a blessing and has changed my life for the better. Born on my mother’s birthday; I think it was meant to be”. – Reginald Winston

It’s not every day that you hear of a heartwarming story between a postman and a dog, but this one is sure to bring tears to your eyes, especially if you are fortunate enough to meet this destined pair. Piper, a short but sturdy black and white pit bull type dog came to our New York Avenue Shelter in January of this year after being found by a responsive DC resident. She spent some time in the shelter looking for her new family, overlooked as many black and white pit bulls are in shelters. But that would change, after I quickly fell in love with her charm and she was transferred into our foster care program.

Local Family Starts Tornado Relief Effort: NOVA for BAMA

Local Family Starts Tornado Relief Effort: NOVA for BAMA

 

Catherine Haynes was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. When she received word of the tornados hitting her hometown and surrounding areas, she decided to take action locally.

Soon after hearing about the great losses in her family’s neighborhood, Catherine Haynes was talking to her husband and said, “I feel helpless and I don’t feel like I can help my parents. I feel like we ought to get together and try to help the community as a whole, since I am not there to actually help them get the tree off the house, or get the yard straight."

The couple decided to put the relief effort online and see how many people they could get behind them. The Facebook fan page has grown to over 160 “likes” and is a place where you can find the various drop-off locations, as well as a list of supplies needed. Home goods have become a particular identified need by the aid centers.
