1 - 20 of 42 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
Because of foreclosures in California, an overwhelming amount of dogs are being surrendered to shelters. Bully breeds are the first to be euthanized if no one adopts or rescues them. Since over 1 million “pit bulls” are euthanized in the United States yearly (statistics provided by Best Friends Society, Kanaab, Utah), the service provided by FBR is critical for the Central Valley which has one of the highest rates of euthanization in the whole of California. (statistics provided by CCSPCA).
Since its founding in May 1, 2008, FBR has rescued over 2,500 dogs. At our shelter, we house over 40 resident dogs at all times. Some rescued from the community, from abusive homes and county shelters where they were designated to be euthanized.
Step 1 is to fill out our ONLINE ADOPTION APPLICATION. Once that is complete, we will contact you within 24-48 hours.
We will be looking for a safe, secure, happy & healthy environment where a dog will thrive as a part of your family.
If you have any other animals, we assist with introductions to make sure that they all get along. If all these things go good, that’s it!
Fresno Bully Rescue (FBR) is a volunteer-based, non-profit, no-kill rescue and shelter dedicated to rescuing bully breed dogs (i.e. American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, American Bull Dogs, Bull Terriers, etc.). We are here to provide a healthy and loving temporary home while we look for forever homes for our shelter dogs. We are one of the only breed-specific, no-kill rescues with an actual kennel-facility in California. We house over 45 adult dogs at our facility (with many more puppies and adults in foster homes). Our pet adoption program and support is tailored to help find you the best match for your family and start it off right! We are a 501 (c) (3) public charity and all donations are tax deductible.
Our facility is open to the public Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday 9am-4pm
