October 2020 Newsletter — National Pit Bull Awareness Month!

Dear Friends –
In September, we hit another milestone – 100 dogs and puppies saved since Covid began in March! That makes 136 total lives saved as of today!! We will continue to share exciting news, needs, updates and more over our social media, but this will be the last newsletter of 2020!!

We are still in desperate need of fosters for adult dogs. Fostering not only saves lives, it will give you purpose and passion and we need you!! We provide everything you need to foster for us and you become part of the Love-A-Bull family. Will you help us? Click HERE to learn more and fill out an app.

FOSTERS – Call to Action!! 
We are in desperate need of fosters for adult dogs!! We provide everything needed to foster and we match you with a dog, with your kids and current fur babies in mind. If you are interested in fostering, click HERE for an application. Help us save lives!!
  • Daytime Transport – We need volunteers who are available during the day, who can help us pick up dogs at shelters, transport dogs to our vet for appointments, take dogs to and from their foster’s house and meet and greets. Vehicles that can fit a crate are ideal, but not necessary.
