Applaud Rescue of Shot and Abandoned Dog


Target: Andi Davis

Goal: Commend individual who carried a wounded pit bull down a steep mountain.

While on a mountain hike, an Arizona woman named Andi Davis came across a two-year-old pit bull lying emaciated and barely alive between some rocks. It was obvious that the dog was injured, but it wasn’t until Davis inspected more closely that she realized that the dog had been shot. What Davis did next is amazing: She picked up the injured pit bull and carried the 47-pound dog down the steep mountainside, climbing down for more than an hour to reach her husband and daughter who were waiting at the bottom. The family rushed the dog to the Arizona Humane Society for emergency care, and because of Davis’ remarkable strength and compassion, Elijah the pit bull is now happy, healthy and enjoying his new home with the Davis family.

Davis’ rescue of Elijah shows a real, genuine sense of caring. Despite the considerable challenge of climbing down a steep hillside while carrying Elijah, Davis managed to not only save the pit bull’s life, but also welcome him into her home where he now lives contently with both the human members of the family as well as the Davis’ three other dogs.

Take a moment to applaud Davis’ remarkable act of kindness and her dedication to saving the life of a lost, injured animal by signing the petition below.


Dear Mrs. Davis,

I would like to send my personal thanks and respect for your actions which led to the rescue of Elijah. I imagine that the climb down that mountain must have been grueling and frightening to endure, but despite the challenge, you managed to make it down the mountain and save Elijah’s life.

It is tragic that someone could be so heartless and cruel as to shoot an innocent animal and leave him for dead, but as sad as that may be, the inspiring and heroic nature of your actions leaves a much great impression. Thanks to you, not only has Elijah survived this horrific ordeal, but he found a loving forever home with your family.

We, the undersigned, thank you and your family for demonstrating the power of compassion, and hope Elijah will be a very happy member of your household for the rest of his life.

  1. If more people were like her it would be a wonderful world.

  2. Andi Davis, I do not know who you are. But by reading such amazing efforts, that you had taken to rescue this poor animal from his excruciating pains, and a painful death, obviously you will have a SPECIAL place in the Heaven. I cannot fathom how on earth some people turned out to be so malicious & barbaric towards the helpless, defenseless animals. These dogs are so intelligent, faithful, affectionate and will give you their unconditional LOVE beyond even the humans.I hope & pray that BOTH of you are doing fine and may god’s blessings be with you all.

  3. Thank you Andi Davis for rescuing injured pittie Ellijah. You are a beautifully kind soul!!

    Thank you to whole Davis family for taking him into your home & making him part of your lovely family.
