For Bullies Sake
Bully Breed Rescue
Located in Picayune Mississippi we are dedicated to helping shelter dogs that are hghly adoptable avoid being euthanized.
Realizing how bad the need was for more advocates for pit Bulls and other Bully and so called Dangerous breeds we started rescueing. Just one or two at a time. They live in our home and get training and all medical needed until they are ready for adoption. Over the years we have grown bigger and have more dogs and now we really want the world to know we cant do this alone and the need for us just grows with time. I grew up with a family of dangerous breed rescuers and a lot of my rescue efforts are in the memory of my Daddy who never met a single dog who couldn’t touch no matter how aggressive it was deemed to be. Our mission is to educate people on these misunderstood dogs and to stop breed discrimination. Any breed of dog can be as bad or as good as you make it.
Healing Broken Hearts Rescue
A small rescue trying to help homeless dogs and cats find their forever homes.
“Our rescue was formed by four of us who were deeply entrenched in animal rescue. After working with the shelters and and various rescue groups, we began to discuss with each other what it would take to start our own rescue. The second the thought was out there, we knew we wanted to move forward and make it a reality. Knowing it would take a lot of time and dedication (which we were already prepared for), we also knew it was something we could do to make a difference. We hope to help people find the perfect new member for their family. If it is not with us, that is fine! We have a great relationship with several rescue groups who may have exactly what you are looking for. We know how hard of a decision it can be to find the right pet, so hopefully we can make that process a little easier for you.”

Louisiana Boxer Rescue
Louisiana Boxer Rescue, located in New Orleans, Louisiana is an all volunteer, non profit, 501C3 organization that provides a safe haven for Boxers surrendered by their owners or that have come to us from an animal shelter. Unlike a shelter, our rescues live with a foster family during their interum for veterinary care, behaviour evaluation and observation that assists us in finding them the best …suited permanent homes. Boxers that come to us receive necessary veterinary care, including required vaccinations, spaying/neutering and heartworm treatment. Once care and evaluations are complete, these boxers are then ready for adoption.
Magic Happens Rabbit Rescue
MHRR is a group of volunteers and foster homes in and around the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area. Rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small critters come from animal control agencies, are strays, dumps at pet stores or vet clinics, or are surrendered by individuals/families who can no longer care for their pets. We also visit classrooms and scout meetings to teach little ones about rabbit care. MHRR enjoys bringing our adoptable rabbits to the LSU Vet School Open House, BREC Bluebonnet Swamp, Pet Fest, and other local events. We strive to be of service to our community by offering boarding, nail trims, and answering husbandry and behavior questions to all rabbit caretakerss.
