Episode 2 – October 06, 2023 – with Jill & Cody Rackley of SHADOW’S FUND & The Pit Bull Podcast
There are only small handfuls of people in this world who have invested everything in acquiring land, erecting structures and maintaining a staff, and dedicating all of these resources to the betterment of a large number of pit bull-type dogs. There are even fewer who are DOING IT RIGHT. Jill and Cody Rackley of Shadow’s Fund are amongst those few.
Mina and Rick do a deep dive with Jill and Cody into the challenges of not only keeping a sanctuary running year after year, but doing so at a high standard. From there, they focus on the challenges surrounding our beautiful bully breeds, with a focus on why pit bull-type dogs’ reputations suffer such incredible unfairness, and how we can play our part in giving these deserving creatures a better chance at a fair and fulfilled life.
