Local Rescue Organization Needs Support

After more than 12 years of rescuing animals, the 501(c)3 nonprofit Bully Breed Rescue Inc. organization is reaching out to the community, seeking generous sponsors and supporters for donations in order to continue their life-saving work. One of the longest standing pit bull rescues in Connecticut, Bully Breed Rescue is extremely low on monetary donations and still has many dogs currently in their care. Although primarily a pit bull rescue, they also save other breeds that can be labeled “aggressive”, such as Rottweilers, Dobermans, shepherds and even cats. All donations go directly to the animals in their care.

Community support helps dogs like Seven, Bogie and Cyrus. Seven was found on the side of the road, emaciated with two broken back legs in the middle of winter. Bogie came from a neglectful backyard breeder, and had two deformed front legs; the organization was able to fix the legs with physical therapy and daily stretches. Both Bogie and Seven are now happily adopted. Cyrus was also abandoned and found extremely emaciated and weak; the emergency vet found his body was riddled with cancer. Although he lived his last three weeks happy in a foster home, he unfortunately passed away. Bully Breed Rescue reports that the medical bills for just these dogs ranged from $2,000 to $8,000.
