American Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier
A 158 Center Road, Columbus, MS 39702 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs.
1 - 13 of 13 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We are located in Columbus, MS. We do adopt out of state, however the adopters must come to our facility.
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.
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)
