Tara’s Petition Caught the Attention of the New York Times and Resulted in a Happy Ending for Diggy & Dan!
Dan Tillery and Diggy the American Bulldog knew, upon meeting, that they were meant for each other. Diggy had been at the shelter for months waiting for a forever home, and Dan was eager to provide it. Their first selfie as an official family was so adorable that it went viral, but that spelled bad news for Diggy and Dan. Police saw Diggy’s pic and assumed he was a pit bull -- a banned breed in Dan’s township. When Care2 member, Tara Vitale, heard this news, she created a Care2 petition demanding that Diggy be allowed to stay with his new family. More than 110,00 people signed, which attracted major media attention. Now, Diggy is home with Dan and getting all of the love he deserves.
