The Bully Dog Rescue Coalition

Imagine a world where pit bulls are valued, respected and loved. That’s the world we live in at The Bully Dog Rescue Coalition (BDRC). Not only are we striving to become the “World’s Largest Pit Bull Rescue & Sanctuary,” we are committed to becoming the most effective advocacy center for bully breeds in the U.S.  

On BDRC Sanctuary grounds, our dogs will enjoy a daily quality of life that will ultimately set the standard for rescues and sanctuaries across the country, and our team takes a stand on issues that matter. We contribute to making all shelters no-kill shelters, work to promote proper education, to abolish Breed Specific Legislation, backyard breeding and dog fighting, proactively promote spay and neuter mandates, and help to change the way the world views our best friends.
