Fresno Bully Rescue: River

by Terese Shaw


We weren’t very clever in naming her; it’s where our staff found her, early one morning in February of 2016. When the cute little blue and white female was spotted, she was hanging out on a cliff near the bottom of the San Joaquin River, right down the road from our shelter facility.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Rescuing a Senior

We hear it frequently, “I want to adopt a puppy, so it can grow up with us.” Puppies are cute and can be molded somewhat, but do have their own personalities. There are many solid reasons to consider an adult as a first choice when you’re ready to add a four-legged member to your family.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Queen Irene

A couple of months ago Fresno Bully Rescue took a chance on a senior female Pit Bull named Irene. She was picked up by animal control at a local shelter with a long list on medical problems. She had been attacked and brought in with open wounds on her body. In addition to the recent attack, Irene had obviously long suffered from neglect and over breeding.

FBR always stands behind our dogs, and when a dog is adopted we are ready with open arms should they need to come back to us. Peaches is one of those dogs, and is proof that third time is a charm!

In 2011, I and another FBR Board member made the drive up to Jamestown, California, and returned with Shadow. Shadow was an owner surrender, dumped at the local animal control in an area that had very little adoption outlets for Pit Bull-type dogs. Fresno Bully Rescue wanted to give him a chance at finding a forever home, so after a little temperament testing, we loaded him up and brought him back to Fresno with us.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Mama Mia

by Pam Burgraff-Woody


We had planned on taking a break from fostering while we moved so that we could get things set up at our new house. One text message changed those plans—and changed them fast!
There is always a wide range of emotions I go through when I hear the backgrounds of each foster we have helped, but some hit my heart more than the others. Momma Mia was one of them.

In rescue we sometimes tend to focus on all of the animals who are not safe, who we cannot help, and the overwhelming number of them needing us. At the end of every year, we find ourselves emotionally and physically exhausted. At Fresno Bully Rescue, we are fortunate to be graced with warm-hearted, volunteers, adopters, and supporters who continually amaze and energize us.

Dakota came to our rescue just over three years ago in late December in terrible shape. She was skin and bones and covered in scabs and cuts. Despite her rough condition, she was incredibly affectionate and loving. In the care of FBR, she quickly blossomed into a beautiful, muscular, and majestic dog.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Spike’s Visit

by Spike


Tonight I went with a really nice lady, she told me I was going for a special visit to a place called Windham Assisted Living Center. As we drove along, she filled me in about Windham. It was filled with wonderful seniors that love dogs and that they were excited to meet me. I wondered if they knew I was a Pitbull? People sometimes get a funny look on their face or refuse to pet me when they find out that I am one. It only makes me want to wag my tail a bit faster and my smile bigger!
