My story

Eyes that will melt your heart: that's sweet Doe. Those eyes have already melted several hearts along the way. This beautiful girl was found injured and brought to the city shelter. The shelter was full. Her future was bleak, but the shelter worker who took her in saw that gentle look and reached out to rescue. The rescue was full, as well; but when we met her, we couldn't say no. Fortunately, a wonderful family stepped up to foster her through her recovery. The second photo shows Doe just a few days after leaving the shelter, finally taking a deep breath and getting some quality lap time. In her foster home she has blossomed into a playful, happy dog who has a pretty "sit." She stays calm and well-behaved when she visits stores with her foster mom, and loves to offer a paw to shake when she meets a new friend. She needs a slow introduction to new dogs, but does well once she has time to get to know them. She has also spent supervised time with cats. Doe is heart worm negative and on regular preventative, spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

More about this rescue

We are an all-volunteer 501 (c) (3) no-kill animal rescue organization with a focus on pit bull terriers and American bulldogs. We are committed to providing the companion animals in our care with any and all necessary veterinary treatment, training and socialization. Any animal we take in has a home with us until adopted. We depend on donations from the public and the hard work of our volunteers in order to fulfill our mission, which is to reduce the number of abandoned or mistreated pit bulls and American bulldogs through:

1) education of the public on the characteristics of these wonderful dogs; and of pit bull caretakers about the responsibilities of having this type of dog as a companion;
2) assistance: with spay/neuter and other medical expenses for responsible owners; and
3) rescue, rehabilitation and placement.

All our rescued pets are evaluated for temperament, receive all immunizations, are microchipped and are spayed or neutered prior to placement. All dogs have tested negative for heart worms and receive regular preventative prior to adoption.
