CALENDAR OF EVENTS

MPR IS FULL!

We can only help you place a dog in need if you are willing to "foster" the dog until a home is found. The dog must be spayed or neutered. If you found a Pit Bull and need help, please CLICK HERE.

MPR is a small network of local foster homes. We rescue most of our dogs from local shelters, some of which have a non-adoption policy on the breed. In these cases, Pit Bull type dogs are only released to "licensed" rescue groups. MPR is often a Pit Bulls' only chance to make it out of the shelter alive. We bail out our dogs as we have room available. Since we can't keep up with the amount of Pit Bulls that need help at the shelters, we are unable to take owners' surrenders.

The "Sponsor A Dog" programs have made a world of difference for our rescue dogs. Even if you can't adopt, you can still save a life....

Our sponsor programs allow us to buy good quality food for the dogs in our care, to spare no expense for parasite management, to assure essential medical care, to buy crates, extra toys, treats, supplies, etc. Without it, we would not be able to help as many dogs.Please view our adoptable dogs MALES, FEMALES, PUPPIES & BULLIES and you will see which ones need sponsors. Select your favorite and CONTACT US to let us know which dog you would like to sponsor and which program you prefer. We will add your name or the name of your company below the dog of your choice as soon as we receive your donation.

Punish the Deed, not the Breed

Although the main concern of MPR is to help Pit Bulls find a good home, we are also dedicated to improve the reputation of the breed. The last thing we want is to see a bad dog fall in the wrong hands. The dogs we rescue are carefully selected for their great temperament and sound disposition. We also do extensive screening on the potential homes to make sure our dogs are placed with caring and responsible owners.

MPR acknowledges that while a Pit Bull is an outstanding pet, it does have some particular needs. In general, Pit Bull type dogs make excellent companions, but like any other breed, it is possible that they carry undesirable traits such as human aggression, shyness, instability, etc., due to poor breeding or previous irresponsible/abusive ownership. These animals should NOT be made available for adoption unless they have successfully completed a strict rehabilitation program. Animal-aggression however, is a common trait in all Terriers. Pit Bull dogs in particular, are not good candidates to live in a home with other pets unless the owner has a very good understanding of the breed.
