Two dogs abandoned in Bakersfield are looking for a new home with the help of the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society, DAWG
SANTA YNEZ VALLEY, California – Two happy dogs are in search of new homes after being rescued from a busy Bakersfield street.
The pit bull mixes, a male and female, were found with no food or water sleeping on a discarded mattress. The man reportedly had a five-foot strap that was tied tightly around his neck. Both dogs were unchanged and the female was found to have given birth to multiple litters in the past.
Members of Bakersfields Rescuing Abandoned Dogs (RAD), an informal group of caring citizens, heard about the dogs and stepped in quickly to get them to safety and arrange for temporary care.
The team soon named the pups Oreo and Graham after their colorful and cute personalities.
However, due to pet overpopulation in the Kern County area, help was sought from the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society and the Dog Adoption and Welfare Group (DAWG).
In just a few days, Oreo and Graham were on their way to Santa Barbara County. Since their arrival, the dogs have not only been showered with love and affection, but have been changed, microchipped and vaccinated free of charge by CARE4Paws.
The CARE4Paws clinic teams also treated Oreo for a double ear infection and repaired an injury to one ear.
However, this may not be the end of Oreo’s and Graham’s journey.
If the two of them cannot find a loving home in Santa Barbara County, they are sent to Montana, where they are promoted and adopted as part of the Montana Pittie Project. This rescue is focused on helping abused and neglected bullying breeds. The pups will make their journey thanks to the generosity of nonprofit pilots N Paws, whose volunteer pilots work with animal rescue groups and shelters across the country to transport pets in need.

Oreo and Graham are a related couple and humane society looks for families with prior experience with their race.
If a loving home is found locally, the Montana Pittie Project will open that up
