THE STORY:

FRIENDS TO THE FORLORN PITBULL RESCUE INC wrote -

Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, Inc. is a volunteer-based 501(c)3 rescue and community outreach organization based in Dallas, GA.  Jason Flatt, President and Founder began our rescue efforts in October 2009.  Over the past 7 years we have rescued 475 pitbulls and responsibly adopted out 390 pitbulls to forever homes.  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. By pulling at risk​ 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!  We are foster home based with close to 50 foster homes and average 100 dogs in our rescue at all times.  We support our community by sponsoring "Beat The Heat" events during which we offer free spay/neuter certificates to owned pets, free vaccines and free supplies.  We have fixed over 3,000 for free for the community thanks to generous donations to our rescue.  We team up with local food pantries and provide pet food to families in need.  We also offer free Spay & Neuter programs throughout our community to all dogs and cats that are in need.  We are the only hardcore pitbull rescue located in the Atlanta, GA area.  Unfortunately the demand for help for this breed 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 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 have obtained the land and are in the planning phase of creating an amazing facility with an estimated cost of $1-$2 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 great small hard working rescue doing big things​ for the animals and could put this money to work​.  Donate and sit back and follow our progress and watch what we do.  There is no stopping us!
