Shaw Pit Bull Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Columbus, Mississippi, that is dedicated to saving abused, abandoned or neglected American Pit Bull Terriers.
The shelter’s goal is to provide pit bull dogs with the medical attention they need; as well as love and attention they deserve to heal- emotionally and physically. Workers rescue and place pit bulls into responsible homes.
Workers and volunteers fundraise to be able to provide veterinary treatment, spay/neuter surgeries, food and shelter. Education and breed advocacy is a huge part of the shelter’s mission.
Shaw Pit Bull Rescue was intended to rehabilitate a few dogs at a time, but at any given time, they may have over 40 dogs awaiting their forever homes. Shaw Pit Bull Rescue keeps all dogs in their personal care to better monitor the dogs’ health.
