Dogs: Too many to count / Rescuer: Linda Blair

By Briana Fugitt

Most people know Linda Blair from her role as the possessed child with the spinning head in The Exorcist. This part led many to stereotype her as “evil,” or “scary”, and she came to know what it was like to be judged and feared simply based on media propaganda. One day, a brindle pit bull dog followed Linda home, and though she initially feared the dog due to all the negativity in the news regarding the breed, there was just something special about the sweet and lonely dog who only wanted attention and affection. It was then that Linda felt a calling to help homeless dogs and started The Worldheart Foundation, a non-profit rescue dedicated to rescuing homeless dogs (including countless pit bulls). Linda’s efforts have saved hundreds of lives, and her dedication to spreading awareness and education on spaying and neutering has surely saved even more lives.
