Make A Stand Bully Rescue strives to end canine neglect and build a bully-breed loving society through adoption programming and advocacy. We envision a society where bully breeds are accepted and responsible dog ownership is expected.
All applicants must first complete a rigorous 6 page adoption application which is sent to our team to review. Questions are specific to dog ownership and bully ownership, in addition to questions regarding the environment the dog may be living in, if approved. Once we receive the application, we review the answers and request additional information from the applicant, to include home check pictures (both internal and external); veterinary reference (if applicable); and for some applicants, personal reference checks. Then our team members complete phone interviews with top candidates to have a conversation with the applicant and truly determine if the dog they're interested in is actually the right fit for the home environment. It would be at this point that we suggest other matches, if necessary. Once a home has been approved by our team members, we schedule a meet and greet followed by the adoption day. For some dogs, we offer foster-to-adopt trial periods so we can ensure both the dog and the home are matched well. Post adoption, we provide lifelong resources and community network to ALL adopters.
