Welcome to Shaw Pit Bull Rescue, Inc.
Shaw PBR is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving abused, abandoned or neglected American Pit Bull Terriers.
We have over 50 years combined experience with pit bulls, and truly believe they are wonderful, loving animals that deserve the chance to have a good life. Over the years, we have seen many cases of irresponsible pet ownership, resulting in dumped, lost, mistreated or surrendered animals. By educating the public about responsible pet ownership issues, we hope to improve the overall welfare of pets in our society.
Originally intending to rehabilitate one to two dogs at a time, we now have 32 adopt-a-bulls - 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 facility until new homes are found. 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.
We do not have a staff - we both work full time jobs, on top of the rescue work. Thankfully, we have several dedicated volunteers that help with fundraisers, events, networking, dog socializing, 'doggie spa days', and grunt work.
Fundraisers, adoption events, and Shaw PBR merchandise are also available to raise funds to keep our efforts going. Some of our merchandise includes T-shirts, decals, mugs and leash/key holders.
Our adoption fees range from $100-$150. All adopt-a-bulls are spayed or neutered; up-to-date on all vaccinations, including bordetella and rabies; on heart worm preventive; have been treated for heart worms and other parasites; are micro chipped; and come with free 30 day pet insurance.
We currently have 6 pit bulls, a pot bellied pig, and a cat living in our household - and they all get along fine!
Thank you so much for being a part of the solution, and not the problem
