Pit bulls are some of the most loyal and amazing creatures out there.
However, pit bulls often get a bad reputation despite their loving nature, like with the dad who was afraid a pit bull would hurt his baby girl. Luckily, there are plenty of caring and amazing pet owners who know just how special these beautiful dogs are.
One such pit bull lover is Kara Montalbano. Kara knows just how harmful the negative stereotypes around pit bulls can be. As a result, she spends much of her time volunteering for a nonprofit in Rhode Island called Handsome Dan’s Rescue for Pit Bull Type Dogs.
As a pit bull owner, Kara struggled to find an apartment to rent. She told Huffington Post, “I looked for about two weeks and knew it would be a waste of time, so I decided to buy.”
Now, years later, Kara is looking to rent out her home to someone else, but she has one brilliant stipulation that will melt any pit bull-lover’s heart.
Scroll through to see the incredible Craigslist ad Kara wrote for her home rental. Her devotion just goes to show the importance of loving these wonderful creatures.
When she moved in with her boyfriend, Kara decided to rent out her house, but she made clear that there was one large stipulation: The renters had to own a pit bull.
She told Huffington Post, “If they don’t, I know they won’t have a problem finding another place to live, and I will wish them luck. I prefer renters with pit bulls because I know how hard it is to find a place to live with one, for no reason other than ignorance and labels.” Below is the Craigslist ad she posted.
Her ad reads that she will accept dogs but that “pit bulls [are] preferred.”
Kara has also thought about purchasing more property down the line so that she can rent to even more pit bull owners. She said, “I have something that can sincerely help keep a family together, so why wouldn’t I rent to a family with a pit bull? To me, this should be the norm, and I don’t think I’m doing anything that I wouldn’t expect other dog lovers to do.”
While she awaits the perfect pit bull family, Kara has continued to volunteer for the pit bull nonprofit, making a difference in the lives of many beautiful canines.
Kara’s incredible work with the pit bull nonprofit, and her willingness to help out a pit bull-owning family in need, just go to show the incredible power a single person can have to help these amazing animals.
