Animal shelter tries to give pit bull a second chance

STRATFORD - The Stratford Animal Rescue is looking for a good home for a pit bull found abandoned and left to die one month ago.

Grace, a 1-year-old pit bull, was found by a volunteer outside and tied to a fence. She was covered in parasites and parts of her intestines were exposed.

"She was in very bad shape," says Stratford Animal Control officer Rachel Solveira. "If she didn't have surgery within a few days she would have died."

Solveira says that Grace has made great strides in her recovery and that she would make a great addition to a family since she does well around other dogs and children.
