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.
With over 75 years combined experience with pit bulls, Shaw PBR's PitCrew truly believes they are wonderful, loving animals that deserve the chance to have a good life.
Over the years, the PitCrew has seen many cases of irresponsible pet ownership - resulting in dumped, lost, mistreated or surrendered animals.
By educating the public about responsible pet ownership issues, Shaw PBR hopes to improve the overall welfare of pets in our society.

Originally intending to rehabilitate only one to two dogs at a time, Shaw now has 30 Adopt-a-Bulls.  All dogs remain at our facility - in our personal care (no fosters) - so that we can better monitor their health and answer any questions potential owners may have regarding behavior, medical issues, etc.

Fundraisers, sponsorships, and Shaw PBR merchandise are also available to raise funds to keep our efforts going.
Our adoption fee is $100. All Adopt-a-Bulls are spayed or neutered; up-to-date on all vaccinations - including bordetella and rabies; on heartworm and flea/tick preventive; have been treated for heartworms and other parasites; are micro chipped; and come with a Max and Neo fitted collar and leash.
Thank you so much for being a part of the solution, and not the problem.

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 veterinary treatment; spay/neuter; food and shelter.


We are dedicated to fostering responsible pit bull ownership through education, adoption, and breed advocacy.
