I spotted Rebel as a pup tied to a tree down from my house. I would pass him daily to check in on him seeing him lonely and hungry . He just wanted to play! Completely broke my heart but I knew this guy was a must have so I was adamant on making sur he got a chance to live and be a happy pup. Months have gone by and I notice the owner had vacated the property leaving sweet rebel. I finally run in to her and I tell her I can keep him in my yard so he can run free also I would like to put in effort to help this terrible infection he has i his body. She then moves out of her place and never calls, or comes back for her Precious Rebel. So I then set out to help this adorable guy get his painful blisters healed, get checked for heartworms, get him fixed in hopes of finding the lucky family that gets to fall in love with this sweet pup!! Please anything you would like to donate you can send direct to :The Animal House- Attn: Linda 205-672-3550 Harpersville, Al. We just had his first treatment for dermadex (a painful mites), next first shots/ heart worm check then medication, finally getting him fixed to prepare for his family, whom ever that maybe. My name is Mandi Macon proud mom of 4 other precious pups!! Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story!

Bridgette and the staff at the bully rescue center are all about the animals! We have rescued 2 dogs from here and I will only go this route moving forward. I highly recommend saving a dog vs going thru a breeder.

The volunteers at FBR work tirelessly to educate people on bully breeds, rehabilitate, and find these loving pups a forever home! They do home inspections, meet & greets and follow ups to ensure a good fit for both the dogs and the family. Great effort in outreach and education as well!

My business has partnered with FBR to raise funds to keep the program going. They are a group of extremely professional, dedicated, and philanthropic individuals who truly care about the work they do! I am very particular about the organizations that we support and FBR is definitely at the top of our list!

I adopted my Marlie from Fresno Bully Rescue a little over 7 years ago and she is amazing. They took her mom in as a stray through their foster care program until her puppies were able to be adopted. Their shelter is always clean, the staff easy to find, helpful and very knowledgeable. They do such an important job here in the valley educating people on the breed. Nothing but good things to say about FBR. Keep up the amazing work!

The Fresno Bully Rescue is an awesome, and desperately needed, save haven for pitties in the Central Valley. They are run completely on donations and volunteer efforts. They are constantly coming up with fun and creative fund raisers and have a huge following.

When we adopted our Angel (formerly Buttercup) from FBR in 2011, we fell in love with all of the amazing people at FBR. They have always been available to help us with any questions or issues we have had over the years; and we have since fostered 5 more fur-babies with their help and guidance, ultimately adopting 2 of them (our beloved Penelope in 2012 - formerly Genie - and most recently Saint in 2017). FBR is an amazing organization with the most knowledgeable and compassionate staff you will ever meet. I can't imagine our lives without everything FBR has done for us and all of the wonderful dogs they've saved.

It's very difficult to put into words how amazing Fresno Bully Rescue is. There have been countless times where they have come to the Rescue and pulled Pit bulls from my shelter. Pit bulls that had no chance of being pulled by anyone else. I am so proud of the relationship that we have with them. They do amazing work and I can't wait for the next Pittie that is pulled from US. Thank you is just not enough. Thank you for giving our babies a second chance at life. I truly do love you all.

I've watched Fresno Bully Rescue grow from a small rescue to a group that has helped so many dogs and bought their own property through such hard work.

FBR took in my special needs foster after being abandoned by a defunct rescue. I am forever grateful.

A group of hard working volunteers who put every dime plus some into rescue and education, they are often the only defense against a death sentence for dogs who are discriminated against and will rarely make it out of a shelter alive.

Fantastic people working for a fantastic cause! I have been volunteering at Fresno Bully Rescue for 7 years and have always admired the passion and persistence the volunteers have and the care and attention they give to enrich the lives of the dogs. They take great care in ensuring that the dogs go to loving homes and work hard to educate the public about how fantastic these dogs truly are!

We have adopted 2 great dogs from FBR and we're so happy with the adoption process, the screening, the care they give their animals, and the impact they're making on the community!

After our dog passed away, we went to Fresno Bully Rescue to find a new member for our family. All the staff/volunteers were helpful and knowledgeable in helping us select and prepare for a dog. The dog we adopted far exceeded our expectations. He is a puppy but already had a great foundation in basic obedience and general household manners. He was crate trained, starting house training, and socialized. FBR was great throughout the process and we couldn't be happier with our new family member.

We have adopted three dogs from FBR and currently volunteer for them as well. We have stayed involved because of the staff's total involvement in protecting and educating the public on the true appreciation of this misunderstood breed. The facility is clean and well run and every dollar we contribute goes over 80% to the dogs care, education and rescue of bully breeds; they are monies we consider well-spent!

I learned of this rescue through my best friend who volunteers here. I took a chance and visited. The staff was really friendly and I received a tour of the facility along with introduction to several dogs; this was amazing because I went without an appointment and they went off what I was telling them.

None of the dogs I met seemed to meet my requirements. As I was leaving, a sweet little pitty of just two years walked in with a volunteer. She was white and brindle and instantly I had to have her. She was sweet, the perfect size for my home, and not too much energy that she’d feel like she was couped up. Two weeks later and she was mine and the rest is history.

The pitty breed has a bad name and it’s based solely on perception. This rescue does everything they can to rescue these
beautiful dogs, find them homes, and change the public perception. I will definitely return when it comes time to adopt another.
