Tillery: "Lifelong Pit Bull Advocate" Zach Randolph Hailed For Work

Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial-Appeal reports that Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph, formerly of the Portland Trail Blazers, is doing big-time community service work within the local pit bull community. ------------------------------ Griz forward Zach Randolph will answer a local cry for help Friday and assist a pit bull rescue and adoption after a pit bull was located trapped in a drainage pipe near Waring and the Green Line path in mid-July. A local woman and her daughter called police when they heard the male dog's cry for help 15 feet down the pipe and a full rescue operation ensued. Animal welfare advocates say the dog had been in the pipe for approximately two days completely surrounded by dirt and debris and would not have survived many more hours of entrapment. Memphis Public Works employees used a backhoe to remove the dirt and broke the pipe and then workers reached in to get the dog, which has been at a local veterinary clinic receiving treatment since. Randolph, a lifelong advocate of the pit bull breed, and a huge fan of the show "Pit Bulls & Parolees" on Animal Planet, decided to combine his two passions to help this troubled dog. So Randolph will finance the entire rescue, rehabilitation and adoption process of this dog. Randolph will also make a significant donation to Villalobos Rescue Center (VRC). ------------------------------ -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
