About Our Rescue Group:

Orlando Bully Rescue, Inc (OBR) envisions a world where these unjustly criticized dogs share homes with kind, loving, and competent families, while their reputation is being restored and preserved. OBR was organized to educate and advocate on behalf of the pit bull and other bully breeds regardless of their background. OBR staff members, fosters, adopters and volunteers have been working tirelessly against society’s negative stereotypes, misconceptions and myths associated with pit bull type dogs. OBR does not discriminate based on age or health status because we believe every dog should have a chance at a good life. We are passionate advocates for the prevention of animal overpopulation, the direct result of uncontrolled breeding. By preventing unwanted dogs and cats from being born, we can eventually eliminate euthanasia of thousands of animals throughout the country each year. To that end, every animal we rescue is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and provided the required veterinary care before being placed in his or her foster or adoptive home. OBR also provides outreach services within the community. We believe that educating the public — both children and adults — will result in the kind, humane treatment of animals Dogs eligible for OBR foster and adoption program include abandoned dogs found as strays wandering the streets, those suffering abuse or neglect at the hands of humans, or worse, those who will find themselves used as bait dogs then discarded. In some cases, the dogs have never heard a kind word or know what human touch is. Through no fault of their own, dogs found themselves displaced; in homeless and abusive situations. OBR is passionate and dedicated to making a positive difference in each dog’s life from the minute the dogs joins OBR. After determining a dog’s temperament and evaluating other compatibility factors, OBR begins to search for the perfect home. OBR’s goal is to only place dogs in loving and responsible homes. OBR strives to help dogs in every way we can – for example some dogs need to be socialized, desensitized or require physical rehabilitation and OBR is committed, so the dog can eventually start a new life. Each and every dog the adopt-a-bull program learns basic obedience, socialization skills, is spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, and receives the medical treatment necessary. OBR continues to encourage pit bull dog owners to get their dogs involved in obedience (such as Canine Good Citizen), agility, tracking, weight-pulling, and therapy work.

Over the past year, OBR has consistently hosted a monthly Pack Walk at different locations in Central Florida and the event has been embraced wonderfully by the community. During the Pack Walk, the dogs are being stimulated while receiving structured exercise and learning socialization techniques. Onlookers often marvel at the level of cohesion and cooperation that prevails among dogs during Pack Walks.

OBR is a non-profit organization that relies entirely on public support to keep its programs going. OBR is foster home-based network, meaning OBR is only able to help the number of dogs that they have foster homes for.

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.
