Mid-America Bully Breed Rescue History
Kansas Pit Bull Rescue was founded in 2003 by two dog lovers who were tired of having to turn homeless pit bulls away from their small foster home network because they lacked space, volunteers and adequate funding. Their goals were to assist pit bull-type dogs who found themselves in high kill animal shelters in the Midwest. With significant help from supporters and donors, KPR placed over one hundred needy pit bulls and pit bull mixes into responsible forever homes within their first two years of incorportation as a licensed 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.
Kansas Pit Bull Rescue Becomes MABBR
As we met more local bully lovers, KPR expanded and created Mid-America Bully Breed Rescue (MABBR), a foster home network maintained entirely by volunteers. Since its expansion, MABBR has successfully placed over one thousand pit bull-type dogs into permanent homes. With hard work, dedication and charitable donations, we believe MABBR will continue to have a tremendous impact on bully breed dogs in the Midwest.
Dogs in MABBR’s Adoption Program
MABBR volunteers rescue the dogs in our program directly from deathrow in Midwest shelters. All of the dogs are temperament tested before they are accepted into our program and are continually socialized until they find their new home.
Most MABBR dogs are in foster homes where they are socialized with other dogs, children and adults. Our foster families play a big part in our success as they not only show the dogs unconditional love and invite them into their home, but they also spend countless hours working with their foster dogs to ensure they are fun loving and well mannered pets.
MABBR takes the responsibility of choosing good adoption prospects very seriously. Although we don’t expect the dogs to come to us with perfect manners, we do expect them to be friendly with all people. MABBR does not tolerate any form of human aggression and we will not place dogs for adoption that exhibit human-aggressive behavior. As responsible bully owners and rescuers, it is our duty to make sure the dogs in our program are good ambassadors of the breed.
