Sophia Selzo nominated today’s honoree for National Pit Bull Awareness Month – Merry Young of Braveheart Rescue.
I would like to nominate Merry Young of Braveheart Pit Bull Rescue in Lakeville, MA, as an outstanding person who dedicates her life to saving these wonderful dogs and trying to educate the public on them as well.
Merry works full-time as a nurse and yet still manages to work full-time as a rescue. She opened her house to these magnificent animals in order to find forever homes for them. She’s always running an event to promote public awareness as well as trying to show off her pups in the hopes of finding that perfect home. I adopted my Nero from her almost 6 years ago…Merry found him in North Carolina…he had been severly abused, set on fire, shot in the stomach, the list goes on and on. She took him and brought him to her home. When I saw him online, I knew that he belonged with me. He has the best personality and is so happy to have been saved…truly a wonderful dog who loves everyone. He knows he was saved and appreciates every day!
I commend Merry for the work that she does…I wish there were more like her!
I couldn’t agree more, Sophia! Merry is one of the first people I met in pit bull rescue, and she has always been there with advice and support. Though she is far away, I had the good fortune of meeting Merry and her husband Gary, and I’m so thankful that she got the chance to meet my inspiration, Tiffin. She is definitely an awesome lady with a heart of solid gold for pit bulls.
On behalf of Bless the Bullys and the National Pit Bull Awareness Campaign, thank you Merry, for all that you do!
