Bandits Place - East Hartland Pet Shelter

Bandits Place

In 1982 I went to a dog pound looking for a dog that had been advertised for adoption. I came out instead with a smelly, cross-eyed pooch that I had to bathe three times to see her actual colors. She was so afraid that she wouldn't even walk out of that pound. I had to carry her. This trembling little bundle was only about three or four months old but she had been eating food out of broken glass containers and had been severely abused. But over time, Bandit became an inspiration to all who met her. She taught kids who had been abused that fear and mistrust could be overcome with love and understanding. Bandit had a smile (yep, a smile) and intelligence that has never been matched. From the beginning, until she died in my arms in 1992, I promised Bandit that I would always do what ever I could to help animals be placed in loving, caring homes. I have kept that promise to her. Bandit's Place is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless animals and placing them in loving, forever homes. It matters not where they've come from, but it matters greatly where they go. Needy animals are pulled from pounds across the United States and from individuals needing to surrender their pets. Referral services are also available to owners who can no longer keep their pets. We have added farm animal rescue and Wildlife Rehabilitation to our resume as well!
