Please help us support this rescued “bait” dog . . .

January 6, 2010

The Boston Globe recently featured a story on an abused dog that was found severely injured, left on the side of the road.

She is believed to have been  a “bait dog”, used to test the  strength of other dogs in  dog fighting.    Fortunately, a passerby found her and helped get her the care she needed. But the dog, now named Turtle, will  have a long road of recovery ahead. She will need to be quarantined for six months due to her bite injuries, and  will need rehabilitation before she can be adopted into a home.

Leslie Mann, a Realtor at Hallmark Sotheby’s International Realty, was so upset by the story that she decided  she had to do something to help raise money for the dogs’ medical care. She is hosting a spinning “party” a  at Spynergy Cycling Studio in Wellesley on Saturday, January 16 from 11am-12pm. Please come join her, enjoy  some great music, get a terrific spin workout and help support this sweet dog. “Turtle has suffered untold  cruelty and we hope that this little event will help her have a happy and healthy life ahead” said Mann.

100%  of the spin event proceeds will be donated directly to the Animal Rescue League for Turtle’s care.  Spynergy Cycling Studio has generously donated use of its spinning studio and its instructor’s time for this event.

In addition, she’s selling “I Heart Turtle Dog” t-shirts for $15.00 to raise additional funds for the shelter. These were generously donated by Merry Perry Design of Quincy. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Animal Rescue League.

To buy a seat in our spin class to support Turtle, please sign up at www.arlboston.org/spynergy or send a $20 check made out to the Animal Rescue League of Boston and mail it to:
