Tuscaloosa K9 Camp dog rescue Our Doppleganger
This American flag was all that stood at the former site of the Tuscaloosa K9 Camp dog rescue and training center. It stood for the 20 plus dogs that lost their lives on April 27, 2011. Their owner and caretaker, Heather "Red" Litz, along with two other devoted employees, bunkered down to try and save as many as possible and as most faithful dog owners would've done…almost lost their own lives in the process.
They shared their story, their pain and tears, with us on our TV show and it will premiere this Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012. Never have we felt so drawn to a cause. Before we arrived, we had been told that "Red" was Tia's "doppleganger." Something that Tia shook her head at…until she met Red. Not only a physical resemblance (years apart of course), but spiritual and emotional to a tee. But what was most apparent was the unconditional sacrifices they both have made for their dogs and the willingness to die for them in order to protect them…something words cannot describe.
The Tuscaloosa K9 Camp still has not recovered from the loss of their ENTIRE facility. Rebuilding has been slow. They still need help with donations of money, supplies and mostly MANPOWER. Red is now on her own (everyone left after the tornado). The Tuscaloosa K9 Camp is hosting a volunteer event this weekend in hopes of getting alot of work done but to also round up permanent volunteers. After watching their story on TV…well, just get out your box of Kleenex…
