Here are the Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull rescue “Tails in the Hood” from 9/24/11 thru 9/28/11 in Jason Flatt’s own words:
9/24/11 – I have taken a few pictures of Esperanza. Sunny has been taking fantastic care of our little girl. She went on a golf cart ride and met the next door neighbors pig. She has a pitbull brother and a great dane to play with. It will be about 3 weeks to a month before we can do her surgery and get her into the necessary wheelie cart. Thanks for all your support.
9/25/11 – I received a call yesterday from my good friend Heather. Heather and my friend Dee run Pet Buddies food Pantry. They are a great group. She had met a young homeless couple with a pair of pups. One a pit/lab mix named Stumps and a sweet little beagle mix named Buffy or Phoebe, which ever you prefer. Heather told me the kids were homeless and didn’t have vaccines for their pups. She said she spoke to them about spay and neuter and the boyfriend was a little apprehensive about getting Stumps fixed. Heather called me to vaccinate and deworm them and try and talk some sense into them. They were great dogs and not bad kids either. They just choose to travel and jump trains as they are young and adventurous. To each his own! I’m not here to judge them, I’m here to educate and help them with their pups. It went really easy. We vaccinated them, dewormed them and signed them up for spay and neuter appointments on Thursday. They will also receive their rabies shots. Great job Heather and Dee and Leesha Martin from the Spay/Neuter Coalition. Two more dogs will be getting fixed this week. Great people working together to help our pups. Thanks guys!!
9/27/11 – Friends to the Forlorn just took in 3 more dogs. Diamond, Hunter and Junior last Thursday the 21st. Little Junior was fixed on Tuesday, while Little Hunter and Diamond were fixed last week. Thanks to all the sponsors.
9/28/11 – We are full as always, but my two right hands, Miriam and True decided to meet Jo from The Coalition to Unchain Dogs at Fulton County Animal Control on Saturday. Welcome Riley, a totally blind two years old that was full of cigarette burns and is heartworm positive. How could I be mad at my girls? I would have taken him too. Welcome to our dysfunctional pitbull family Riley. We love you already! He will be picked up this afternoon and brought to the vet so we can quarantine and evaluate him, another Friend to the Forlorn.
We always have a lot going on at Friends to the Forlorn, we really rescue dogs. When you really rescue dogs, it costs a lot of money and it takes a lot of work, and a lot of time. The work and the time thing don’t bother me. I love working with and spending time with my dogs. What’s work to others is relaxation for me. Nothing better then a house full of pits. It’s the money thing that sometimes is a set back. That’s why I’m starting the Change Jar Challenge. Take a jar and set by your door. When you come in from work, or your daily outings, take the change left over from your purchases, just the coins, and place them in the jar. The day after Thanksgiving, count your change. If you feel inclined to, send it to us. What is just spare change to you can really help our dogs. Every little bit helps. The address and Paypal are below. I appreciate your support.

Jason’s motto: “I always thought someone should do something about that… then I realized I am that someone.”
Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue is a wonderful rescue in Georgia that is Atlanta based. That does not stop Jason Flatt from working just about all of Georgia and even then some. Jason has a great network of fosters and friends that have helped him along the way. It is with these connections that so many dogs have been helped by the hands of Jason Flatt. Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue not only helps injured, sick, and perfectly well pitbulls and other breeds but it also helps educate kids and people on better ways of taking care of their dogs. Jason goes into underprivileged areas of Atlanta that are prone to dog fighting and helps spread the good word to not participate in those activities. He also helps provide spay /neuter and vaccinations for the dogs as well. This helps the community that otherwise would not receive it, thus creating more unwanted dogs and more shelters having to euthanize pit bulls. Jason Flatt has created the “Tails in the Hood” explaining about his adventures with saving pitbulls to show the community as well as others around the U.S. just what he does. He wants people to understand the importance of their actions. Actions speak louder than words so spay and neuter your pets.
