Our Mission

We are a passionate group of volunteers committed to rescuing, rehabilitating, advocating for and creating happy endings for dogs who are often discriminated against based on their breed alone.

About Bullied Breeds Rescue

We are an approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization registered to rescue dogs in MA (and soon to be in NH as well).

Many of the dogs we strive to save are homeless, abused, neglected or simply misjudged, yet all of them deserve a second chance. Many never get that second chance because they are a breed which has been blacklisted from housing complexes, home insurance policies and even banned from living in certain cities or states. The list of breeds who often face unfair public discrimination is long, but the top four tend to be American Pit Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Dobermans & German Shepherds.

Our goal is to help give these precious misunderstood dogs a second chance at the life that they deserve by placing them in loving foster and forever homes. We work closely within our communities and through local animal control facilities and shelters to save as many dogs as possible. Our network of volunteers, advocates and fosters work tirelessly to ensure that every dog we meet is given a chance to prove the world wrong.

All of our dogs have been fully evaluated and temperament tested by trained volunteers. We operate solely on donations and our organization is 100% volunteer-driven and foster home based. This allows us to direct 100% of the rescue’s donations and fundraising proceeds to the dogs in our care.

Our Volunteers

We love dogs. We love these breeds. We own these breeds and have been fighting against the discrimination our dogs face for years. Learn more about us on our volunteer page.
