Goliath is a nine-year-old pit bull mix who lives with his human Gricel, a woman with disabilities. Goliath's first owners were dog fighters and Gricel's son David rescued Goliath when he witnessed the dog being beaten because he wouldn't fight. David convinced the dog fighters to sell Goliath and he has been a cherished family member ever since.
Goliath and his family benefit from Kane Krusade's Canine Assistance, Resource and Empowerment (C.A.R.E.) Kits, whic support families facing financial hardship and are delivered monthly right to the pet family's door. Kits include food, treats, toys and equipment like crates and leashes. Additional services include spay/neuter, veterinary and vaccination assistance; dog training and tenant advocacy for pet families seeking dog-friendly housing.
Goliath suffers from severe food and environmental allergies, so he needs a special limited-ingredient diet which Kane's Krusade is able to provide to keep him with his family, thanks to a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization.
