Rescued Pit Bulls to Become Service Dogs for Veterans


CARROLL COUNTY, Ark. (KFTA) — Some of the fifteen abused pit bulls who were rescued in July have been chosen to become service dogs for veterans. 

When authorities found the dogs in the Carroll County home,they believed the pit bulls were used for fighting and only had about 24 hours to live. 

Now three of the dogs were chosen by “dog’s nation,” a service dog organization in Missouri, to be trained and partnered with a new owner. 

Jessica Kelly, owner of Kelley’s Animal Services, said she is proud to give these dogs a brand new life. 

“Every single one of those dogs who were brought out of that home are obedience trained already. They sit. They stay. They shake. They want to give you a kiss. They are so happy they are in a different environment,” Kelly said.

Kelley said all three dogs have already been paired with a veteran.

The dogs will be trained and given to their new owner for free.
