Hector the Pit Bull was one of the 51 dogs rescued from the Michael Vick dog fighting case back in 2007.  After a couple of really crappy years to start off his life, Hector was able to enjoy 7 years of love and fun adventures!  He became a Certified Therapy Dog, served as a friendly dog for kids to practice proper behavior as part of dog bite prevention programs, and was featured in media across the country. 

The picture to the left was taken right before Hector passed away from cancer, and inspired a thoughtful person to donate $7 in his honor ($1 for each good year), and asked that we encourage others to do the same.  We can’t think of a better way to honor Hector than by starting a fund to help other dogs in need.  Please consider joining us by doing the following.

  1. Give $7 in Hector’s honor by clicking the Donate button!  (If you’d like to check the box to make it a monthly recurring donation, we won’t stop you!) 

  2. Share this page link, and invite others to join you!  Feel free to post a picture of you and/or your dog along with a sign that says Thank You Hector as well!

  3. If you prefer, you can also mail a check to Wallace the Pit Bull Foundation  PO Box 7356  Rochester, MN 55903

The Hector Fund allows Wallace the Pit Bull Foundation to help other dogs get the chance they deserve as well!  Dogs like Patrick and Henry.  Both dogs were confiscated due to their owners’ misdeeds, were being held at Chicago Animal Care and Control, and could only be pulled by an approved rescue group.  In our partnership with the good people of Safe Humane Chicago, we were able to spring these boys free, and they are now living it up with families who adopted them and love them greatly!  We look forward to honoring Hector by saving many others!  We thank all of you for your support, but most of all, thank you Hector the Pit Bull!
