Oakley's determination and unstoppable attitude has made me want to be a better person. Our mission is to prevent animal cruelty and abuse for others. We spread awareness and try to inspire others to never give up. We've had a great support system through Facebook. We love and appreciate all of our supporters! www.facebook.com/BulletproofOakley
Our next mission is to write a children’s book. I personally didn't think much would come of the name that I called him a few days after taking him in. At the time I thought it sounded good to call this adorable pup Bulletproof Oakley since he survived a bullet to the spine. We believe that his name can be so much more than just what he's been through.
In the book he often day dreams of transitioning from Oakley to Bulletproof Oakley. Bulletproof Oakley being a super hero to protect other animals from cruelty and abuse. He is very confused when this happens. It happens so often that he doesn't know the difference between his dreams and reality anymore. Could a disabled shelter pup be destined to be a super hero to save others?
Why this book should be created:
The book will be a lesson theme to teach children how to have empathy towards animals and treat them as they should be treated. Many pets receive improper care because people are not taught how to care for them. We want our book to instill compassion, respect, empathy, kindness, sympathy and love; as well as a balanced sense of self-worth. As these characteristics hopefully prevent future bullying, and abuse. Response to children’s Interactions with animals is most crucial in the early development stage. Teaching by example and correction, to be responsible, respectful and kind to animals, we are validating a child’s need for attention, respect and status in a healthy, positive manner.
We want to provide this book to children'a organizations, and schools. If we reach goal we will be making plans to travel to deliver some ourselves. Oakley and I really hope to meet and be able to read our book to some awesome kids!
