Bickell and his wife, Amanda, run a charity that raises awareness and understanding about pit bulls. The charity is called Chicago Loves Pits.
The Bickells had been trying to save Buddy, a young pit bull who was found recently on a South Side street.
On Thursday morning, not long after an the couple appeared on the WGN Morning News, a rescue shelter called New Leash on Life stepped forward to take in Buddy and try to find him a home.
The Bickell’s charity will pay for Buddy’s neutering and other shelter costs.
