“She’s Everyone’s Mommy”, Rescued Pitbull Turned Into Rescuer

Imagine a cold, dreary evening at an overcrowded animal shelter, where the buzz of anxious whimpers fills the air. In one corner, a pit bull named Ginger huddles—pregnant, frightened, and merely days away from an untimely fate. This could have been where her story ended, but fate had a different plan. 

Rescued from the brink by Susan Hick, a devoted animal rescuer, Ginger found not just a safe haven, but a purpose. This is Ginger’s story.

Near-Death Experience

Only days from being euthanized, a visibly terrified Ginger was taken in by Susan. The pit bull was not only pregnant but on the brink of a lonely fate. In the warmth of Susan’s home, Ginger gave birth to nine puppies, all of whom found loving homes. As time ticked by, the bond between Susan and Ginger deepened, making it impossible for Susan to let her go.

Ginger’s gentleness wasn’t just a boon for her human companions but extended to other residents of the house—Susan’s foster cats. These feline friends found a maternal figure in Ginger, who seemed to relish their company as much as they did hers. This harmony between species was a testament to Ginger’s soothing nature, a trait that would soon define her role in the household.

Maternal Instincts

Beyond her initial rescue, Ginger evolved into a nurturing figure for the many kittens that Susan fostered. Although she couldn’t nurse them, she allowed the kittens to snuggle against her, providing the warmth and comfort of a maternal presence. Her quiet, calming spirit was particularly potent for the kittens who arrived sick, scared, and motherless.

Ginger’s influence extended beyond just comforting the kittens. She played a crucial role in their socialization, particularly in helping them become accustomed to the presence of dogs. This not only helped in their eventual adoption but ensured they could integrate into diverse households.

Susan notes that Ginger’s mere presence has a healing effect on the kittens. “I don’t recall any single kitten who came here kind of skeptical and frightened, and left the same way,her simple presence is so healing” she reflects.

Changing Perceptions

Ginger’s story is not just about rescue but about challenging stereotypes. Susan actively uses her platform to redefine the narrative surrounding pit bulls, showcasing through Ginger’s example that they are capable of immense love and gentleness, contrary to popular media portrayals.

For Susan, Ginger has been more than a pet; she has been a catalyst for change. Her journey with Ginger inspired Susan to reshape her career to accommodate more fostering and to focus on animals in dire need of medical attention. “There’s something in that Ginger magic that turns them around,” Susan says, her voice tinged with admiration and love.

Through her acts of quiet kindness, Ginger has become more than a mascot for “Today, Tomorrow, Forever Animal Rescue”—she has become a symbol of hope and healing, a testament to the power of second chances. Her story isn’t just about saving lives but about enriching them profoundly, a beautiful reminder of the impact one creature can have on many.
