Orlando Bully Rescue, Inc / Orlando, FL

Mission statement: An all-volunteer non-profit, 501(c)(3) rescue group in Central Florida, Orlando Bully Rescue, Inc (OBR) aims to revive the positive image of the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier (all breeds commonly referred to as pit bulls) and other bully breeds through promoting responsible dog ownership, fighting unfair legislation, education, advocacy, and rescue.

About the organization: OBR envisions a world where these unjustly criticized dogs share homes with kind, loving, and competent families while their reputation is being restored and preserved. OBR was organized to educate and advocate on behalf of the pit bull and other bully breeds regardless of their background. OBR staff members, fosters, adopters, and volunteers work tirelessly against society’s negative stereotypes, misconceptions, and myths associated with pit bull type dogs. OBR’s goal is to only place dogs in loving and responsible homes. Each and every dog in OBR’s adopt-a-bull program learns basic obedience, socialization skills, is spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, and receives necessary medical treatment. OBR is a non-profit organization that relies entirely on public support to keep its programs going. A foster home-based network, OBR is only able to help the number of dogs for which they have open foster homes.

Admission policy: No-kill dog rescue. The goal of OBR is to focus on rescuing American Pit Bull Terriers and bully breed dogs in high-kill county and city shelters. Dogs eligible for OBR foster and adoption program include abandoned dogs found as strays, those suffering abuse or neglect, or those used as bait dogs, then discarded. OBR does not discriminate against dogs based on age or health status.
