Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, Inc. is a volunteer-based 501(c)3 rescue and community outreach organization based out of Dallas, Georgia. Our mission is to promote responsible pitbull ownership, provide breed education, combat pet overpopulation, fight unfair legislation, find qualified homes for sound pitbull-type dogs and other dogs in need in Georgia, and help people, cats and dogs within our community.
Jason Flatt, President and Founder, began our rescue efforts in October 2009 and we will be celebrating our 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR! We average between 80-100 dogs, primarily pitbulls, in our foster-based rescue at any given time. Over the past 9 years we have rescued and responsibly adopted out over 600 pitbulls into loving, forever homes. By pulling urgent dogs, that rescues do not want, from high-kill shelters, FTTF is able to help these dogs, who without us would likely not make it out alive. The dogs we rescue include pitbulls and occasionally other breeds who are on the euthanasia list due to overcrowding, lack of responsible owners and adopters, breed restrictions, and complex medical or behavioral issues.
FTTF needs to grow and expand our rescue efforts to support the needs of the community dogs and cats that need our help. The monies raised from our participation in the Fund the Shelters Challenge will go directly towards our next step of growth: our Capital Campaign for our own one-of-a-kind, pitbull rescue facility and towards our spay/neuter program.
We have raised $478,129 of our estimated $2-$3 million for the facility. We are have been diligently looking for the right land for the past year. Also, want to continue supporting our community by funding spay/neuter and vaccine programs for owned dogs and cats, regardless of breed. We have fixed over 6,000 dogs and cats for at no cost to the community thanks to generous donations and grants. Help us fix 6,000 more!
It takes a lot of support to reach our goals and make our dreams come true… and that’s why we need you!
