BDHPI Loss, Remembering Cara David

It is with great sadness and shock that we write to inform you that one of our fellow Volunteers, Cara Davis, passed away on Thursday morning. Cara was traveling back to Colorado from Louisiana after celebrating the Holidays with her family when she was involved in a head on collision in Texas. Cara lost her life as well as the lives of her 2 beloved dogs. 

As some of you may know, Cara was a foster for BDHPI and has been fostering Paul-O. We have been told that Cara’s parents are very worried about Paul-O and that Cara loved him very much and was proud of the dog he is. Paul-O was not with Cara at the time of the accident and has been staying with Jennifer & Fritz Piatt. The Piatt Family has graciously agreed to become Paul-O’s new foster family until his forever family is found.

A memorial fund has been set up for Cara. BDHPI will be making a donation in her honor and if you are so inclined to do so personally, here is the link:

100% of the proceeds of this fund will be applied in the following ways: the cremation of her dogs, relocation of her cats to her parents home, bringing Cara back to Lousiana and funeral costs.

Cara was a very young 29 year old woman with a full life ahead of her and we ask that you keep her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Lil Bit- Why we do what we do...

BDHPI was contacted by the family of a lovely woman who was sadly battling cancer. Her time on this earth was drawing to an end but she was leaving behind her beloved Mastiffs. BDHPI gladly offered to help and welcomed Buddy & Lil Bit into rescue. Two days after bringing them into rescue, their Mama passed away. We are so thankful she left knowing her babies were being taken care.

Once in rescue, we began to observe that Lil Bit didn't feel as good as she should. Her Foster Mom immediately made an appt at the vet and we were all so sad to learn that Lil Bit too had Cancer. The vet felt she was really struggling,  in a lot of pain and suffering in a way this sweet old lady didn't deserve. With the advice of the Vet, the Officers at BDHPI made the painful (but right) decision  to peacefully end her pain.

Lil Bit left us, but joined her Mama on Tuesday afternoon. We all find peace that they are together again.

Buddy, her brother, is THRIVING in rescue.  He has a lab in his foster home and they are playing together like little wild animals. His Foster Mom says she lives in fear everyday that they are going to take down her Christmas tree :)

We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be a part of both Lil Bit and Buddy's lives.
