Mid-America Bully Breed Rescue History
Kansas Pit Bull Rescue (KPR) 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 goal was to assist pit bull-type dogs who found themselves in high kill shelters in the Midwest. With significant help from supporters and donors, KPR placed over 100 needy pit bulls and pit bull mixes into responsible forever homes within their first two years of incorporation 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 in 2005 and created Mid-America Bully Breed Rescue (MABBR), a foster home network maintained entirely by volunteers. Since its expansion, MABBR has successfully placed thousands of 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 dogs from a variety of different situations. However, most of the dogs in our program come from small shelters in the Midwest where they have little chance of getting the exposure they need to find the right adopters. All the dogs in our program are temperament tested and evaluated on a daily basis until they find their new homes.
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 invite these dogs into their home and care for them, but they also spend countless hours working with their foster dogs to ensure they are stable 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 has a zero tolerance policy with dogs that exhibit human aggression and will not place dogs that display dangerous behavior towards humans. As responsible bully owners and rescuers, it is our duty to ensure the dogs in our program are good breed ambassadors.
