ARFF MO's mission is to promote public safety through education about responsible pet care as an alternative to banning breeds of dogs. We focus on education, legislation, and rescue to accomplish our goals. We rescue Pit Bull type dogs that are on "death row" due to breed specific legislation from the Fayette Dog Pound., We try to help other local dogs affected by BSL when possible. ARFF MO was created after the Fayette City Council passed a Pit Bull ban in Feb. 2009. We post pictures of our re-homed "death row dogs" on our website to educate the public about the true nature of these unfairly targeted for eradication pets.
