Kind-hearted officers from the Kansas City Police Department came to the rescue of a pit bull, Dog Heirs reported August 12. Now the dog, named Mr. Parks because he was found in Swope Park, is being cared for and will be available for adoption very soon.
Everything just fell into place for this rescue. A local rescuer was driving by the park and noticed officer Jason Cote and his partner next to a pit bull who had been abandoned by his owners. With all of the recent dogs shot by police incidents, that rescuer decided to stop and help with the dog.
The rescuer introduced himself and thanked the officers for their caring gesture. Missouri Pit Bull Rescue was contacted and happened to have an opening for a male in the program. Mr. Parks is now in foster care and will be up for adoption as soon as the rescue finds him a forever home.
Mr. Parks now has a webpage, where his adoption fee is listed as $135. If you’re interested in giving this baby a good home, please contact Missouri Pit Bull Rescue.
Great job, officers. It would be nice if every police department decided to help dogs instead of shooting them. Hopefully, you have restored some of the faith lost by the bad officers out there who use family dogs for target practice.
