Pit bull sanctuary rescues abused and abandoned pets

Cody Rackley, co-founder of Shadow’s Fund, holds onto ‘Baby’ one of the many dogs rescued at Shadow’s Fund which is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitating of senior and high-risk dogs.

Honey, a white and tan pit bull, squirmed with joy as Jill Anderson, the co-director of Lompoc’s Shadow’s Fund, entered the room with a new human visitor — also female — for more socialization.

Sitting on the couch, the visitor gently rubbed Honey’s ears and chin, and then her belly, covered in scars. Honey, about 60 pounds and 2 years old, climbed right into her lap, scattering papers.

Honey started life as a “bait dog” being used to entice male pit bulls to attack during staged fights, Anderson said. Honey ended up in a shelter in Ventura, where another rescue group teamed with Shadow’s Fund to bring her to Lompoc and start the rehabilitation process to secure Honey a new home.
