Old? What’s that mean? I’m Nemo and I never learned how to be old. I still love to run and play just as much as any little kid. You like goofy? Here I am! You know what I really like? Belly rubs. Yep. Give me a belly rub and you just earned yourself a new best friend. I promise you no one will ever love a belly rub as much as I do.

About Shaw Pit Bull Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We have over 30 years experience with pit bulls, and truly believe they are wonderful, loving animals that deserve the chance to have a good life. Over the years, we have seen many cases of irresponsible pet ownership, resulting in dumped, lost, mistreated or surrendered animals. By educating the public about responsible pet ownership issues, we hope to improve the overall welfare of pets in our society.

Originally intending to rehabilitate one to two dogs at a time, we now have 24 adopt-a-bulls - and all are awaiting their forever homes. One major difference of Shaw PBR over most other rescues, and shelters - is that all dogs that come to us are at our facility until new homes are found. We also do not utilize fosters - all dogs are in our personal care so that we can better monitor their health and answer any questions potential owners may have regarding behavior, etc.

We do not have a staff - we both work full time jobs, on top of the rescue work. Thankfully, we have a great group of volunteers and board members that help with fundraisers, events, networking and help with 'doggie spa days'.

Fundraisers, adoption events, and Shaw PBR merchandise is also available to raise funds to keep our efforts going. Some of our merchandise includes T-shirts, decals, homemade peanut butter dog biscuits, calendars, one-of-a-kind hand painted piggy banks and acrylic canvas paintings.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Since we do not have a staff, we are open by appointment, only. Please call Dana at 662.386.7429 to schedule a time to come out and meet your new best friend :O)
