Don’t BULLY Me Rescue Texas

Our Mission

As an all volunteer 501(c)(3) organization, we are dedicated to improving the lives of the American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier and Pit Bull type dogs and restoring their image. We will improve their lives and restore a positive image through outreach, education, initiation of offering a spaying/neutering program for families who adopt or already own a Pit Bull type dog, and educating the community about responsible pet ownership.

We rescue Pit Bulls that are abused, neglected, and that have ended up in high-kill shelters throughout the state of Texas. We are not a shelter; all of our dogs are placed into a foster care program where they will be kept indoors, socialized, housebroken, and taught basic obedience lessons. We would love to save every Pit Bull that ends up in a Texas shelter, but realistically, we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families. Responsible foster homes are one of the most important roles of this organization and without foster families we will not be able to exist.

Our Vision

Don’t BULLY Me Rescue envisions a world in which the American Pit Bull Terrier and all Pit Bull type dogs are free from neglect, abuse and discrimination. We strive to reduce the number of this breed in shelters across the state of Texas.

We are a small 501(c)(3) all-volunteer run organization that operates solely on your donation support, fundraising and adoption fees. We are neither city-funded nor grant-supported, and we can always use assistance. Our rescue is not known for pulling the “easy” dogs—we pull seniors, hospice dogs, parvo and distemper babies, and most dogs we pull are also heartworm positive. We have rescued dogs with broken femurs, mange, ringworm, upper respiratory infections, and dogs with fear/anxiety issues. Finding new, committed fosters is always a challenge for us, but we haven’t given up on rescuing dogs. Please visit our FUNDRAISING and EVENTS pages for information on our current efforts.
