Congrats winners! Both of your rescues will be mailed a $500 check each. Here is a little information about our bark-worthy & inspiring rescue winners. Please support their cause!
1. Born Again Pit Bull Rescue (BAPBR) was founded in 2007 by Angela Adams. They have since grown from a small independent private rescue to a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization in 2011. They are located in Portland, Oregon and they work with the public in finding homes for Pit Bulls that have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or fallen victim to other situations in their lives. BAPBR strives to educate the public about this breeds true nature and encourages responsible ownership by offering training resource and health care advice in hopes to decrease the number of Pit Bulls that are given up each year.
BAPBR’s mission is to rescue pit bulls from local area shelters, rehabilitate, rehome(find qualified homes for these great dogs), and repair the reputation of the American Pit Bull Terrier, along with promoting responsible pit bull ownership. BAPBR is also passionate about setting pit bulls and their owners up for success through education, awareness and advocacy. They also combat pet overpopulation and fight unfair legislation’s.
2. Great Dog Rescue New England (GDRNE) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit, shelterless, all-breed rescue group headquartered in Massachusetts. Their group is comprised of volunteers all over New England who love dogs and want to help those that end up homeless through no fault of their own. Loyal and loving dogs turn up every day in New England and Southern shelters, as owners turn them in or they’re found roaming the streets after being dumped. To the best of our abilities, they evaluate all of our Great Dogs’ temperament and suitability for living with other dogs, cats, and children. A dog’s health is checked, and they make sure they are up-to-date on all shots and are spayed or neutered. Then, they place them in loving foster homes until they find their very own family. Their goal is to meet the needs of each dog as an individual and to assure proper placement in a loving forever home.
Great Dog is dedicated to animal rescue. In addition to their primary goal of helping homeless and abandoned dogs find loving forever homes, they:
- donate money to spay and neuter clinics in the south to help solve the problem of pet overpopulation;
- engage in community outreach activities with local schools to help educate children and young adult
about animal rescue, responsible pet ownership, proper pet care, etc.
- adopt dogs to agencies that train dogs to assist physically disabled and hearing impaired people
(many dogs that were abandoned are now helping people lead independent lives!).
