Fat Heads Rescue

Fat Heads Rescue (FHR) is a non-profit, volunteer-based dog rescue serving the Southern Indiana area. FHR formed as a response to the obligation that humans have to correct and curtail the pet dog over-population problem, as well as the subsequent euthanasia of healthy and adoptable dogs, that is pervasive in the United States. We are dedicated to diminishing, as much as is possible, the imbalance of dogs and homes available for dogs. We strive to meet this goal via dog rescue, spay and neuter efforts, community outreach, and public education.


Specifically, our goals are to:
-Spread a positive image of pit bull-type dogs. We focus on depicting pit bull-type dogs in home environments, where they live peacefully and safely with their pack of humans, both young and old.
-Support community spay and neuter efforts. All dogs in our care will be spayed/neutered before being adopted out. We will also provide support and assistance to dog owners in the community wishing to have their pet spayed/neutered and provide information about the importance and benefits of this.
-Provide community education regarding the need for pet population control, with a specific focus on pit bull-type dogs. We will “de-bunk” the myths about shelter animals and provide over population/euthanasia facts.

-Advocate for and facilitate the implementation a mandatory spay/neuter policy in the apartment/rental housing business. We will contact rental housing managers to discuss with them the pros of only allowing altered animals. We expect this plan will help alleviate breed discriminatory policies.
-Develop a shelter education program. This plan will help shelter employees/directors in performing behavior evaluations, developing a euthanasia protocol, proper dog handling skills, developing a volunteer program, etc. With our sheltering experience, we hope to give shelters a humane alternative to “no-kill” status.

-Advocate for the homing of adoptable pit bull-type dogs that are in the shelter system.
