ESCONDIDO, C.A. — Slim, an ex-fighting Pit Bull, was trapped in the shelter system. After being rescued from the fighting ring, he landed in a shelter in Georgia. Although the county prohibited the adoption of Pit Bulls, Jenn Aldridge saw photos of Slim’s poor, emaciated body and decided to fly across America to save the life of this dog. and begin her journey with. Jenn Aldridge, the founder of The Saving Slim Foundation, began working with rescues in California in 2007.
When Aldridge saw Slim’s skinny, sick body she knew she had to get him out of there. She had only three days before Floyd County would put him down, so Aldrige flew to Georgia twice — once to get Slim medical care, as he was suffering from stage-four heartworm disease, and a second time to bring him back to California to start a new life. Aldridge says that Slim hasn’t been the easiest to work with but he has taught her an infinite amount about rescuing Pit Bulls and about the darkness that is dog fighting.
Aldridge hopes The Saving Slim Foundation will focus more on advocacy and resources. Rescuing these dogs is extremely exhausting and these dogs are often with her for more than six months at a time. Aldrige is giving human education classes to inner city elementary school children regarding animal abuse and teaching them about compassion towards others.
The Saving Slim Foundation is looking for donations in order to help more dogs in need, whether it be with neutering or food. If you’d like to help, please visit The Saving Slim Foundation website for more information. You can also see updates and videos of Saving Slim’s dogs on their Facebook page
