To save the lives of abandoned, abused, misused, and unloved pit bull type dogs and other bully breeds; to find loving homes for those that are homeless, medically rehabilitate the challenged, provide refuge for the needy, educate the community and to advocate for the responsible care and handling of these dogs. We are determined to rid the city of the negative stigma involving Pit Bulls.
We are a foster-based rescue, not a shelter.
We can only take in dogs so long as they have an approved foster home to go to, which is why fostering is so important to our organization.
After working with various Humane Societies, Rescue Groups, City Animal Control Services (ACS) and having rescue and medical rehabilitation successes, there were still many tears shed and broken hearts. Seeing countless abused, abandoned, and malnourished dogs is never easy, but through the years there was always one breed that was more prominent in shelters than others: the Pit Bulls.
These often were the worst cases brought in (to shelters) or surrendered and the first ones to be euthanized due to various preconceived notions and uneducated decisions made on the behalf of these poor animals. We at Alamo City Pit Bull Rescue have seen first-hand cases of unwarranted and undeserved deaths at the hands of shelters and careless/heartless dog owners.
After years of seeing countless Pit Bulls being mistreated and the unfathomable actions of their owners, a dream was born: that one day Pit Bull/Bully Breed overpopulation (overwhelming animal control services and humane societies) and the daily atrocities that take place in neighborhoods and facilities, would come to an end!
We wanted to offer: an alternative for these intelligent, sweet, and highly misunderstood animals; an alternative to their often predetermined doom; and a rescue group specializing in the rescue and medical rehabilitation of pit bull type dogs that otherwise wouldn’t have been afforded the chance to be shown a good life – a life full of love, warmth, and forever companionship.
