About Our Rescue Group:

Bully Breed Rescue is a small rescue dedicated to rescuing and rehoming dogs that are the pit bull class of dogs, including American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, American Bull Dogs and pit bull mixes. Our goal is to help give these precious misunderstood dogs a second chance at the wonderful life that they deserve by placing them in forever homes. All of our dogs have been temperament tested and we try to provide honest and complete information on each dog. We operate solely on our own funds, in addition to adoption fees, so we have to keep the rescue small. We do not have a shelter - all of our dogs are in foster homes, though we sometimes post dogs that are still in shelters.

:::::::::NEWS:::::::::
We are in desperate need of foster homes and help with transporting dogs. More info on Fostering: If you adopt one dog, you are giving that one dog a permanent home. But if you can foster a dog, preparing it for life in a home, you are allowing that many more dogs to be placed in permanent homes.
While many people can't let go, others are reluctant to foster in the first place, thinking that it is somehow unfair to take in a dog, establish a bond, and then allow the animal to be adopted out into another home. Isn't that a second abandonment?
We will provide supplies, food, instructions and vet care. Foster parents willing to provide supplies and food themselves, will be helping the program out immensely.
Not only does a foster program maximize the number of animals rescued, it allows us to care for animals that would be difficult to care for in a shelter environment - orphaned or pregnant dogs, those recovering from major surgery, dogs needing one-on-one behavior rehabilitation and those that need a break from the shelter environment, foster care provides a comfortable home setting that will keep them happy and healthy.
Taking a stray or frightened animal and showing them that people can be kind, that food is available and that there is a warm place to sleep, creates a marvelous bridge to a new home. Those of us who provide foster space know that there is never a shortage of animals that need this preparation time before finding their own people.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
