Love-a-Bull is doing amazing work in breaking down barriers and misunderstandings involving pit bull type dogs. While there are some breeds that were bred for fighting and attacking strangers/wild boars, pit bulls are not one of these dogs. Love-a-Bull is doing amazing advocacy work for the thousands of innocent pit bull terriers worldwide so that they are not discriminated against simply by the way they look due to wide-spread fear-mongering. There is so much work left to do, and I am proud to help and make any difference I can.

This organization is all talk and no action. They do what they do just for self glory and rarely help any animals in the process. So much misappropriation of funds and terrible treatment of volunteers. So many good animal rescue organizations in Austin and this is not one if them. Stear clear of LAB.

We are sorry to hear that you were displeased with our organization, but we are aware that a rescue and advocacy organization is not he best fit for everyone. Misappropriation of funds is a serious accusation that we do not take lightly. Public records of our monetary expenses and allocation of those expenses would directly refute such an allegation. To date we have adopted out over 350 pit bull type dogs, many of which we have pulled from local shelters, such as AAC and rural shelters that have little to no medical funding, such as the Lampasas shelter and the Marble Falls shelter from which we pulled Chariot, who is a special needs pup. Outside of shelters we have rescued dogs who have spent their lives on a chain and worked side by side with the HSUS to rescue dogs from multiple fight busts. We're sorry you were not able to see the wonderful affects that our organization has not only in the lives of the dogs we rescue, but also in the lives of those volunteers, fosters, adopters and community members who work side by side with us because they support and believe in our mission. We wish you luck in your future endeavors of working with other rescue and advocacy organizations!

i have been a side kick with Lov-a-bull for a very long time now and know when my pit bull and I hit a ruff road Lov-a-bull helped and always have supported us. I started volunteering with Lov-a-bull when I moved back to Austin in 2012. I helped walked abused neglected pit bulls. I love showing the world what real responsible pit bull owners train and love pit bulls. It shows in our dogs and who we are as owners.

Love-A-Bull posted an adorable dog on FB that was in a kill shelter and had heartworms. I adopted her, but heartworm treatment is expensive. The shelter paid for half of the treatment and Love-A-Bull paid for the other half. I was relieved to have their support when I adopted my heartworm positive pit bull. Without them, I wouldn't know her and I wouldn't have been able to pay for her treatment.

I love transporting our love-a-Bulls! They enjoy the car ride, and I appreciate knowing that they have a real chance at finding a fur-ever home one of these days!

I absolutely LOVE what Love-A-Bull is all about. They are always keeping me informed, and they have such a passion for the sweet pitties. They really utilize every version of communication to keep members/future adopt-a-bulls informed about dogs, or what they need help with as an organization.
