After local news reported a large dog fighting ring was discovered in Apopka, Fla., a CTG member learned about a local non-profit, Orlando Bully Rescue, that makes its mission to promote responsible dog ownership (among many other things.) After discussing the issue, we decided this was a group we’d like to help, so for our June Change Project we made a donation to help save a dog. Details about the group are provided below, but please feel free to visit their website and like their facebook page.
Orlando Bully Rescue, Inc. is a 501c3 and their mission is to revive the positive image of breeds commonly referred to as pit bulls and other bully breed type dogs through promoting responsible dog ownership, education, advocacy, and challenging unfair legislation while continuing to facilitate rescue and placement of dogs in need. OBR was organized to educate and advocate on behalf of the pit bull and other bully breeds regardless of their background. OBR staff members, fosters, adopters and volunteers have been working tirelessly against society’s negative stereotypes, misconceptions and myths associated with pit bull type dogs. OBR does not discriminate based on age or health status because we believe every dog should have a chance at a good life. We are passionate advocates for the prevention of animal overpopulation & every animal we rescue is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and provided the required veterinary care before being placed in his or her foster or adoptive home. OBR also provides outreach services within the community & believe that educating the public will result in the kind, humane treatment of animals that they deserve. OBR is passionate and dedicated to making a positive difference in each dog’s life from the minute the dogs joins OBR. After determining a dog’s temperament and evaluating other compatibility factors, OBR begins to search for the perfect home. OBR’s goal is to only place dogs in loving and responsible homes.
