Out of the Ashes Pit Bull Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was formed by a group of dedicated volunteers, who are committed to educating the public, fighting Breed Discrimination Laws (BDLs) at state and local levels, rescuing dogs in danger at kill shelters, preserving the integrity of the bully breeds, and restoring them to their rightful place as the All American Dog.

Out of the Ashes Pit Bull Rescue is a foster and volunteer based non-profit rescue organization, serving the State of Arkansas.

Bully breeds have become the villain of the season. Feared and misunderstood by many, they are subjected to abuse and neglect by irresponsible owners, over bred for the sake of a few bucks, sensationalized by the media and discriminated against by local governments who are uninformed and reactionary.

The vast majority of dogs killed in shelters are pit-bull-terrier-type dogs. Out of the Ashes Pit Bull Rescue does not accept owner surrenders and will focus only on pulling dogs from recognized animal shelters and other rescue groups. Out of the Ashes Pit Bull Rescue’s goal is improve the lives of the pit bull dogs, which have not been afforded the opportunity to benefit from a healthy, safe, loving environment.

Out of the Ashes Pit Bull Rescue works to:

  • Inform and educate the public and government on the true nature of pit bull type dogs by distributing literature and holding public events and by personal example of responsible ownership.
  • Help relieve the suffering of and prevent cruelty to dogs identified as pit bull type dogs, by educating individuals, communities and government officials and by demonstrating the true nature of the breed.
  • Help reduce the number of homeless pit bull type dogs through our foster and adoption program.
  • Help in the placement homeless pit bull type dogs into loving, responsible environments.

We also participate in fundraising in order to provide for the care and placement of pit bulls and bully breeds, with the focus on:

  • veterinary treatment
  • spay or neuter
  • providing food, shelter or other basic necessities
  • support for foster families and adopting families

When they have nowhere else to go, we just can’t say no.
