Hi there my friends… how is everyone doing? How is life treating you all? What is it like in your part of the country? Here we are getting tighter restrictions once again as things are getting a bit more crazy and too many new cases coming up. We were pretty strict but now… a lot more. We basically as strict as you can get. Just hope and pray that everyone is doing ok. We have a brand new Rescue we are featuring today. Dawn and Wolfgang run Knick Knack Pitty Pack – Give A Dog A Home (how cute is that). There quest is to make life better for many many Pitbulls. Rescue them from situations… shelters and more. Give them love… training… get them healthy… happy and the most important thing is they find them a loving furever home! A WONDERFUL Rescue and I am very excited introducing you to them. Please visit their website and check out the wishlist and success stories! Spread the word about them! We also helped Ramapo Bergen and Rescue Dog Rocks this week which I will not go into… just trust me when I say they needed a helping paw. Hope you enjoy the links this week… I now know where I want to go on vacation if that ever happens again… tell me what you think when you check it out. Sending tons of hugs and much love to you all!!!!
Dawn has put together a story for us so you truly understand the heart of this wonderful rescue and tons of pictures… so enjoy my friends. You will then find the regular scheduled Rabbit Hole below 🙂 Meet Dawn and Wolfgang…
Knick Knack Pittie Pack was started in August of 2012 hoping to save as many of the bully breed type dogs as possible… since then, we have opened our doors, as well as our hearts, to many dogs of breeds other than bully breeds… a dog in need is a dog in need, no matter the breed. If we have the space & ability to save a dog, we do. We still try to focus on the bully breeds as so many other rescues and many shelters do not accept them.
We also started out saving dogs from the South as that is where many of our early ties were but have since minimized our focus on local dogs… the dogs in our very own “back yard” are in need of our help & our love and we cannot justify bringing dogs in from states away while turning away dogs in our area.
We have many wonderful & beautiful success stories, as many other rescues do, and these dogs & their stories are the reason we keep going… the reason we do not give up…
Becky is a beautiful girl who was in a Southern shelter several years back who was Heartworm positive and needed rescue… there was something in her eyes that grabbed my heart and we committed to her… she went through her Heartworm treatment through the shelter and was transported too early… she arrived in PA on Saturday and was in the ER on Sunday evening… she fought her way through that and was diagnosed with Babesia, which is a tough tick-borne disease, and beat those odds as well… she was then adopted by a loving local company who own a farm and is the apple of her Daddy’s eye… less than two years later, her pawrents adopted another of our pups in need and Case is his Mommy’s boy… these two are loved beyond measure <3
Tadita is a local pup who appeared in early July of 2016, running around our area… we tracked her, leaving food stations & trail cams, for almost two months… finally, on September 2nd of that year, she went into our humane trap, thanks to a fast food burger, and her running days were over! She & I bonded with all of the late night trap & camera checks and I became her rock… our family officially adopted her and she is my girl <3
Ali was another local pup who was pregnant and needed medical care that her owner could not afford so she contacted us… she signed Ali over to us on a Saturday and Ali gave birth to five beautiful puppies on Monday morning! She was adopted by an amazing family when she was ready and her five pups all found wonderful homes, two of them going together <3
We have over a dozen dogs at this time that will never be adopted out… they are our sanctuary pups. They will spend their remaining years here with us at the rescue… sometimes for behavior reasons but mostly for medical issues… we take in senior dogs, blind dogs, deaf dogs, dogs with heart disease… my dream for Knick Knack is to someday be a sanctuary, taking in the ones that others pass by.
So many beautiful & happy stories and they help to shade over the sadness… the pain… the heartache that we see every day… I used to wish each of them could talk and tell us what they had lived through, what they had endured… and then I realized that we don’t need to know… because where they have been doesn’t matter… what matters is where they are going… their past is behind them and it’s time to look & move forward, knowing that they are, and will continue living, their best lives <3
Now… here are some of the STARS of the show!!!! They are all so wonderful… loved and happy and will make your heart melt!!! We all want to thank Dawn and Wolfgang for the amazing work they do… they are truly Angels on Earth and part of my Hero Crew!!! Now… I know that these pics are going to make you SMILE!!!

Charity of the Week: Knick Knack Pittie Pack
To work towards a brighter future for Pit Bulls by rescuing them from shelters & dangerous/unhealthy situations & placing them in approved foster homes where they get the socialization, vetting & training needed to ensure successful adoptive home placement.
We will also educate the public in regards to true temperament of the Pit Bull types & the owners’ responsibilities to their furry family members to keep them properly socialized and trained, providing referrals & advice when needed in hopes of changing the perception of our beloved Pit Bulls.
