Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, Inc. is a pitbull rescue and community outreach organization based in Dallas, GA. Jason Flatt, President and Founder began our rescue efforts in October 2009. We average about 100 pitbulls in our foster home based rescue. Over the past 9 years we have rescued and responsibly adopted out almost 600 pitbulls to forever homes. Our mission is to promote responsible pitbull ownership, provide breed education, combat pet overpopulation through spay neuter programs, fight unfair legislation and find qualified homes for pitbulls and other dogs in need in Georgia. By pulling urgent dogs from high-kill shelters, FTTF is able to rescue these dogs, that without us, would not make it out alive. The dogs we rescue include pitbulls that are on the euthanasia list due to overcrowding, lack of responsible owners and adopters, breed restrictions and complex medical or behavioral issues. They are broken - physically, emotionally and socially. We build them back up and don't put them down! We are foster home based with close to 50 amazing and selfless foster homes. We support our community by funding free spay/neuter/vaccine programs for dogs and cats, regardless of breed! We have fixed over 5,000 dogs and cats for free for the community thanks to generous donations and grants to our rescue. Unfortunately the demand for help for this breed in the Atlanta, GA area is growing which is causing our need to grow and expand our rescue efforts. We provide all of our rescue dogs with high-quality medical care, top of the line dog food and individual foster homes that can give them the love, care and socialization they each need. We do not put any of our dogs in boarding and we do not transport our dogs to other rescues, we rescue responsibly - they deserve it. Our monthly average cost for taking care of our dogs is close to $10,000 per month. However, the monies raised from this contest are going to go directly towards our next step of growth: a state of the art, one of a kind, pitbull rescue facility and sanctuary. We are in the process of obtaining the land and are in the planning phase of creating an amazing facility with an estimated cost of $2-$3 million. It takes support to do this and we need you. Not many rescues will take in the Forlorn dogs, but they need us and we need them. We are a small rescue working hard to do big things for the animals. We will put every dollar we raise towards our continued rescue efforts. Donate and sit back, follow our progress and watch what we do. Join The Forlorn Family and donate! There is no stopping us!
