PBRC Special Request

Please help the victims of dog fighting – today!

Meet Junior. He is the face of dog fighting-- one of the lucky ones, that is. Junior was seized, along with hundreds of other dogs, in the nation's largest multi-state federal dog fighting raid in history. Junior gets a second chance.

Over the last few months, several organizations, including PBRC, have assisted the Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) in caring for these dogs in a temporary emergency shelter. Now that some of the dogs have been released by the courts, the time has finally come for them to be placed with rescue groups for further evaluation and adoption. The HSMO has worked diligently to locate responsible, knowledgeable, established animal welfare organizations to help find loving homes for these dogs-- all the "Juniors" who very much deserve a place in someone's heart and home.

To assist in their endeavor, Pit Bull Rescue Central (PBRC) has established the PBRC St. Louis Second Chance Fund. This fund will help the approved organizations and individuals with some of the financial costs related to the rehoming of these dogs. Rehoming any dog at any time can be a costly matter. Many of these dogs may require treatment for various medical conditions. PBRC wants to help these dogs get their second chance.

For us to do that, we will need your support. Please help us help all the "Juniors" get their second chance, too.

Pit Bull Rescue Central (PBRC, founded in 1996) is an online virtual shelter and educational resource for owners, rescuers, and shelters dedicated to the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier and pit bull mixes. PBRC works tirelessly to promote spaying and neutering, to educate the public, to present positive pit bull images, and encourage responsible pit bull ownership.

We also provide a free listing directory of adoptable pit bulls, adoption application and review process to help find these great dogs’ responsible permanent homes. For caregivers who don’t have experience with placing pit bulls our application review process is invaluable. We extend our expert knowledge of the bully breeds to assist them in placing the dogs in a safe environment with responsible owners.
