My kids and I went through a terrible life experience that created anxiety for them. As teenagers, we weren't ready for modern medicine. So we saw Pitty Paws was having an adoption at Petsmart. We fell in love with our sweet Layla in an instant. This adoption agency allowed my teens to have their first pet. Layla became a certified Emotional Support Animal for my daughter and she's brought us nothing but joy since she came into our lives. Pitty Paws is in the business of rescuing people through pet adoption.

Brenda Muellier Bleier and her Pitty Paws Rescue came to the rescue for my neighbor a couple of years ago. My neighbor and mysejf already had 4-5 dogs each and someone dumped three puppies in our area. She found a home for one but no luck for the other two. Her husband demanded she get rid of them so she tried and tried with no luck. I called Brenda for help and within a day ! She found a rescuer group in Austin, Tx to take them. She continued to send pics of them showing that both pups found great homes and were safe and happy ! Thank you ! Brenda and others like you !

I live in Canada and adopted a dog from Pitty Paws. Brenda took wonderful care of my baby for 2 months until she could be transported to Canada. I'd recommend her rescue to anyone

Wonderful organization. We had one pitt that adopted us and she needed a sister. We found Pitty Paws set up at PetSMart in Victoria, Tx. We told Brenda what we were looking for, she referred us to one of the fosters who recommended our new dog to us. We were truly blessed to have contact with such caring people. They checked out our home and yard to ensure we would be a good fit! That’s been over 2 years ago and we’ve been very happy with our family of pitts!

We have our second fur baby boy thanks to Brenda at Pitty Paws. We have had him for about two months now and he has brought so much joy into the home. One thing to know about Brenda, she does not just adopt out and forget about the dog or you. She is there for you, to answer any questions and will go the extra mile because she sincerely cares about the dogs.

We adopted our Pitty Paws Puppy a few months ago and will do it again someday. The people from Pitty Paws were very friendly and helpful. We appreciate the assistance they provided and the services we received even after we took our new little buddy home.
Our puppy is healthy, handsome and happy. He has a great temperament and is good with other dogs and around the kids.
Thank you Pitty Paws!

I was so pleased to work with Brenda at Pitty Paw’s Bully Rescue. I had never adopted a dog from a long distance before.

Brenda made this process so easy and worry free. I received easy to follow instructions on the transfer of funds and she kept me apprised of how my new dog, Mazie (formerly Greta) was doing during the process. Also, Brenda notified me when Mazie had been picked up for her big road trip adventure, and also made sure my new family member arrived safely and well.

The transport team Pitty Paw’s Bully Rescue contracted was spot on for predicted time of arrival and was professional, courteous and seemed to truly care about the pets they were delivering to their new forever homes.

It was obvious that Mazie has been well cared for because she was perfectly well adjusted when she arrived here, trusted us almost immediately, and instantly adapted to our family as well as Lainey, her new sister. We all couldn’t imagine our life without her now.

Thank goodness for Pitty Paw’s Bully Rescue …and Brenda.

fWe adopted Mirra a little over a week ago and are so thrilled with her! She’s an 8+ week old Pit-lab mix black and white, oh so beautiful! She is so very sweet and minds really well! She plays well with the neighbors dog and sleeps all night long on the foot of our bed! Plays until she’s worn out then sleeps all night. She’s already part of our forever family. Pitty Paws had all of her shot records and was already chipped in case something should separate us. She minds really wel. Thank you Brenda B for making my heart so happy! I will recommend Pitty Paws in Victoria to my friends!

This is an amazing rescue! They gave us accurate information about our new pooch, and, since the dog traveled from Texas to Washington, they gave us frequent updates about location and arrival time. They answered all of our questions correctly. They provided multiple quality references. Brenda is very interested in providing fur-ever homes for all the dogs in her care.

Got the sweetest little girl from them. When we first got her they had been working on crate training and being around men, as she was very nervous around them. But she opened up very quickly to us But after only a few weeks sh she's enjoying like all puppies should

My family and I wanted to help an animal rescue group out. We already had a dog of our own and were not looking to add another so we decided to foster one dog from Pitty Paws. The process was smooth and they were always available when we had questions or needed anything. Two months went by and we officially became a foster fail family. Once we committed to the adoption process, we once again felt supported and comfortable with our decision because Pitty Paws was there for us every step of the way. I can not express how much the level of care, attention, and compassion played a roll in our decision to help and adopt from Pitty Paws. The dog world is fortunate to have Brenda and the Pitty Paws team in their corner. ❤️

I have been a lifelong dog owner, but never adopted before. We met the volunteers from Pitty Paws at a local adoption event. They were all friendly and helpful. They took time to get to know us and what we were looking for. They made recommendations based on our lifestyle and our family needs. Not once did we feel pressured or feel like a bother to them, no matter how many questions we threw their way. Our first experience adopting a rescue couldn't have been better!

First off Brenda is amazing to work with. She is incredibly fast in returning emails and answering any questions I had. She was warm, welcoming and beyond gracious and kind. I adopted Xandie, now Jester a Catahoula leopard dog mix who is just the sweetest thing. Jester had a very rough life before Brenda and PPBR took her in. She was already crate trained, potty trained and is so amazingly sweet with cats, kids, dogs and just about everyone. Brenda had her for two years and I just cannot believe she was there for that long

Pitty Paws Bully Rescue really cares about the animals they rescue and foster and even continue to do follow ups afterwards. Whenever I send Brenda pics/videos or updates she always is so excited to see them.

Look no further than Pitty Paws Bully Rescue for an animal that needs a good home.

When I first was introduced to Miss Maggie she was a little shy and slim .She looked as if she had recently had a litter with saggy Breast. I was informed that she was HEARTWORM POSITIVE; but she was so Beautiful.I felt I would take the responsibility of helping her get big and beautiful again and learn to love and trust people more. Today Miss Maggie is a healthy 60lbs and we are still continuing to fight heartworms.Maggie has came a long way. She trust in people more and she loves the attention she understands she is not alone and will never be again. She loves her new home and enjoys napping on the bed and playing with her little sister.

We were wanting another dog and we decided we wanted to get from a rescue. We really needed a puppy and PittyPaws Bully Rescue saved a mama and her pups. He happened to have a couple of breeds we were looking for in his mix. We absolutely love our energetic puppy now 6 months old. He’s exactly what we needed and wanted. The rescue answered all our questions and concerns. Their friendliness and service are amazing and we love our dog in his forever home.

I lost my lil fur baby in june 2019 & I felt the loss. In march 2020 I can across pics of a little of puppies & right away this lil cute tri-colored puppy caught my eye. I soon called Brenda with pitty paw to set up a meeting to meet the puppy & by the time I knew it I was blessed with a loving dog who I call Reggie my fur son. Pitty paws was very helpful in answering any questions, getting his shots & being so calm with me since this was my 1st rescue baby. If I had more room in my house I definitely would adopt another fur baby from pitty paws & definitely recommend them❤

Pitty Paws Bully Rescue was amazing when helping us find out sweet boy for our family. I saw a picture of him and fell in love instantly, but was worried about how big he was with our two year old. Pitty Paws let us meet him, hang out with him, and make sure our daughter and him were comfortable with each other! Now he’s just a big teddy bear and part of the family. I can’t praise Pitty Paws enough for the patience they have for families adopting their dogs! Love them so much!!

We are fostering a beautiful dog currently with Pittie Paws. He came from a bad situation and is learning to trust and love. He’s such a smart boy and fostering him has really helped us heal after one of our dogs passed away. There are so many dogs that need loving homes and fosters.

Pitty Paws Rescue does a fantastic job trying to save the lives of this worlds four legged companions. They are committed and driven to help save as many dogs as they can. Luckily I’m fortunate enough to foster some of the fur babies that come through this rescue, it has definitely been one of the best experiences by far. Brenda goes above and beyond to get these pups vaccinated, rehabilitated, and put in their forever homes.

We adopted our furbaby Willow through Pitty paws rescue. They made sure we knew her strengths and needs. They guided us step by step as this was our first experience in adoption. When the adoption was finished, they still kept in contact in case we had any questions or needed any assistance. This is truly a wonderful organization, with caring people. We highly recommend this organization if you are looking for a special furry member to add to your family. Thank you Pitty Paws.

Hello,
I love Brenda! And I love my awesome, beautiful pit mix Bell! I found Bell, my new love, online and “she had me at hello”. So I sent an inquiry and very quickly received an answer that she was available. Brenda was very nice, informative, fun and caring. She has asked me a lot of questions to make sure we will be a great fit...and we sure are! We set an appointment for the following week, and Brenda offered to bring Bella, even though it’s a 2 hrs drive! I was super excited to meet her and my new pup. Bella fit right in with my other dogs, chickens, geese, ducks cows, she is happy, full of life and joy and she makes me smile all the time! The whole experience was amazing and I appreciate Brenda and her family, who opened the heart to so many dogs in need to give them a chance they all deserve. Thank you Brenda, we .

Pitty paws is always available at a moments notice for animals in need. Even when full, they rarely say no. This group has gone above and beyond to help the helpless. When a malnourished litter of 9 pups needed help, Brenda dropped everything to help us set up kennels and get shots and deworming handled. 7 of the 9 have already found forever homes and are thriving.

Pitty Paws Bully Rescue held an event at our art studio so I got to meet several of the rescue dogs they had. I have always been afraid of big dogs but by the end of the day, I wanted to own several of them. This group has done amazing work with the dogs and I felt the animals were extended family members they treasured. They were organized and very informative. This group deserves great things.

Thank you so much Janel! I'm so glad you felt comfortable with our fur-babies! It's important to us to not only be advocates for the breed but to also offer ambassadors for the breed for adoption.
