Location: Alberta, Canada
Year established: 2014
Number of staff/volunteers/foster homes: Approximately 25 volunteers
Types of animal you work with: Dogs, especially bully breeds, which often end up in shelters and are euthanized Fundraising projects: “We fundraise through Teespring shirt campaigns as well as other sales of merchandise,” says founder Tanisha Degenhardt.
Favorite rescue story: “That is a very hard question. Every story becomes our new favorite, every animal saved is worth all the effort. We will never have just one favorite, they are all just as amazing and important as the others!” The organization’s website also promotes and celebrates the joys of bully breeds by sharing inspiring stories about them, such as the pit bull that saved a deaf boy from a burning building in Indianapolis, and the service dog who dialed 911 when his guardian, a military veteran, was suffering a seizure.
