Shaw Pit Bull Rescue has over 35 dogs in their care - 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 facilities until they find new homes. 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. 

Shaw PBR also does not have a staff - owners/founders Kenneth and Aimee Shaw 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 our 'doggie spa days' and slinging gravel :O)

Shaw PBR is not funded other than by fundraisers, events, donations and any grants that may be awarded for the dogs in our care.  We also have Shaw PBR products for sale to benefit the rescue - which includes t-shirts, piggy banks, canvas paintings, decals, and more.   Shaw PBR received a grant from the ASPCA for $1500 to recover costs of purchasing 6 additional kennels - after taking in 31 dogs (18 from site / 2 were pregnant) from a hoarding case last year; and a $1500 grant from the MS Board of Animal Health to recover costs of rabies vaccinations, annual vaccinations, and micro chipping. We have also been extremely proud recipients of two generous donations - over $600 from Bullies by the Bay and over $1700 from the MS Craft Show. We are also very thankful to everyone that supports us - by sharing, liking, commenting (getting us more exposure); donating, purchasing craft or bake sale items, purchasing shirts/decals, etc.; adopting; and just general support - telling folks about us. THANK YOU.... We could not do this without you.

We've seen some pretty awful stuff these last few years - knowing that APBT's are the #1 abused breed is one thing - but hearing and seeing it is another. But we can only help so many. I am finding it so heartbreaking that some of the dogs in our care have been here over 365 days - that's a whole year..... some even longer....

In closing - I'll ask again.... WON'T YOU CONSIDER ADOPTING?

Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide abused, abandoned or homeless pit bull dogs with the medical attention they need; as well as the love and attention they deserve to heal - both emotionally, and physically.


We will work to facilitate the rescue and placement of abused or abandoned pit bulls into responsible homes and participate in fundraising to provide pit bull owners with the means to seek veterinary treatment; spay or neuter; and provide food and shelter.


We are dedicated to fostering responsible pit bull ownership through low-cost veterinary spay/neuter, education, adoption, and breed advocacy.
