|On the evening of July 4th, Kristine Reiser and Fred Hoblit were traveling back to Santa Clarita, when they encountered an injured dog on Hwy 46 in Lost Hills. Kristine, a devoted animal lover and volunteer for Angel City Pit Bulls rescue (ACPB), rushed to assist. Sadly, Kristine was struck and killed by a car as she tried to help the dog. Another woman was also struck but fortunately received relatively minor injuries. Fred, thankfully, was uninjured, and is now coping with the tragedy.|
Animal welfare was a cause that was near and dear to Kristine's heart. ACPB asks that you join us in honoring her life by paying it forward and helping an animal in need - donating bedding, food, food/water bowls, etc., walking a dog at your local shelter, or opening your home to a foster dog are just some ways that you can help.
Fred Hoblit and Performance Cyclery are placing a donation box at the Valencia store, and he will personally deliver the materials and any financial donations in memory of Kristine to ACPB.
