Home Sales for the Love of Rescued Animals

Turtle the night she was found in December 2009.

Three years ago Weston real estate agent Leslie Mann read a story on the Internet that horrified her.

What she read was the story of Turtle, a female pit bull-type dog who had been abandoned in a wooded area of Hyde Park in the middle of winter. She was badly injured and barely clinging to life — showing all the signs of a bait dog, one used to test the fighting instinct of a potential fight dog.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston stepped in to help Turtle — she was found near Turtle Pond Parkway — nursing her back to health through six months of treatment at Tufts Veterinary Hospital in Walpole.

“I was just horrified by [the story] and said, ‘We have to do something for her,'” Mann said. At the time, she held a Spin class fundraiser and sold T-shirts, efforts that brought in about $ 6,000 for Turtle’s treatment.

Today, Turtle is happy, healthy and living blissfully with her adopted family, all facts that make Mann smile. read more

Girl and Rescued Kitten Reunited in South End

Myra, 5, and Paisley the kitten with an ARL supervisor.

Myra, 5, had been walking along the street with her mother in Roxbury when a sound she heard coming from a trash can stopped her in her tracks. 

There, wrapped in not one, but two plastic bags and inside a trash can, was a tiny gray and white kitten. 

Myra and her mother took the kitten home and called the Animal Rescue League, who determined the kitten was only five weeks old and needed special care. 

The kitten is now in foster care until she’s ready for adoption, but in the meantime, Myra got to take a special trip to the South End’s Animal Rescue League to be reuined with the kitten, who she named Paisley. 

Paisley has been in foster care for the past two weeks and has grown and filled out,” the Animal Rescue League wrote in a blog post. “Myra was so excited to see Paisley again and was thrilled to hear that she has already been adopted and will be going to her forever home very soon.” read more
