This Oregon Shelter Built Amazing Cottages For Their Dogs So They Don’t Have To Be Stuck In CagesAshley Maisano
The Luvable Dog Rescue in Oregon is home to many lucky pit bulls, amongst other dogs. The pups have a total of 55 acres of land which includes forest, meadows, hiking trails, and a small country road, all of which they can use to relax and feel at home while their waiting for their forever families to pick them.
But that’s not all. Within the wooded acres, the pit bulls have their own private cottages. Each cottage has indoor and outdoor space that each pup gets to him or herself.
Inside, there is furniture, artwork, and views of the woods.
Seeing the dogs in this setting allows staff to understand what these dogs would be like in a home environment.
Liesl Wilhardt, Executive Director of Luvable Dog Rescue, has loved pit bulls ever since she was a child. She began fostering pit bulls as a hobby and then it turned into her everyday life.
Since these dogs are so special to Wilhardt, she knew she had to do something amazing for them. That is when she began to build this magical place for them, along with the other dogs that are at her rescue.
Wilhardt is constantly thinking of new ideas to make her rescue better. She has recently built a “pit bull palace,” which is a largre building for the bigger pups. She also hopes to build a maternity ward in the near future for pit bull mothers and their puppies.
Luvable Dog Rescue’s motto is “Place, Pack, and Purpose,” and each of these components are important to the shelter. Wilhardt’s goal is to make their stay as inviting and comforting as possible, and hopes that those who have lost their families, or “pack,” or have never had one, can finally feel a sense of belonging there.
Wilhardt believes a dog’s purpose is to provide companionship, and to expect it in return from their humans. Wilhardt will give these dogs all the love in the world while they wait for a family who can provide them with that companionship and give them that purpose.
