Bruiser_90_thumbSALT LAKE CITY, UT (December 17, 2009) — Launched only today, Arthur Benjamin, president and founder of American Dog Rescue, announced outstanding response to its first national campaign focused on the story of Bruiser, a 100 lb Mastiff/Boxer mix, who was hit by a car and left for dead along a Utah roadside. American Dog’s Rescue-Vet Support Program paid for an operation including the placing of a plate and four screws in Bruiser’s left rear leg. Bruiser was cared for by an associate director of the organization at her home with two boxer companions for five weeks, affording the animal a full recovery.

Bruiser was placed by ADR’s partner shelter, Salt Lake Animal Services, in his forever home last night.

“Bruiser couldn’t have made it in the shelter during recovery,” said Shawnee Larrabee, shelter director. “He needed attention and affection to overcome his poor treatment prior to his arrival. American Dog Rescue then provided the perfect temporary home and provided care until he could return for adoption.”

Coverage of the Bruiser’s story appeared during the noon hour on Salt Lake City’s Channel 2 News. A challenge grant from ADR led to over $40,000 being raised to care for abused animals. Most importantly, Bruiser is now living with a loving family.
