Our Mission Statement
Hardin County Pit Bull Rescue is devoted to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming pit bulls in Southeast Texas area shelters, educating the public on responsible pet ownership, the importance of proper pet meds, spaying and neutering their pets and advocating against the inhumane activity of dog fighting.
Hardin County Pit Bull Rescue (HCPBR) was founded in February 2011 and is a non-profit, no-kill rescue dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming bully breeds in Southeast Texas area shelters and pounds. We are here to provide a healthy and loving temporary home while we look for forever homes for our dogs. We are a 501(c)(3) public charity and all donations are tax deductable.
HOW DO WE RESCUE?
HCPBR “pulls” pit bulls facing euthanasia from animal shelters and rescues strays throughout Southeast Texas. Due to the overwhelming amount of dogs on death row and in urgent need of our assistance, we only take in dogs from those situations and do not accept owner surrenders.
HOW DO WE REHABILITATE?
Some of the dogs that we pull from shelters will have behaviors that need to be modified or ‘issues’ on which we need to work. Many of the pit bulls in shelters suffer from bad health, separation anxiety, and lack of confidence. Many have never had a home before, did not know when their next meal was going to be, or have had limited or no exposure to an actual home environment. Some may never have played with a toy. Our dogs may suffer from food/toy aggression, dog aggression, high prey drive, or high energy as a result of being caged for an extended period. These dogs are assessed by a professional to determine what is needed to rehabilitate the dog and make it a well adjusted family pet.
HOW DO WE RE-HOME?
We takes great pride in the adoption process. Potential adopters will complete an adoption application on our website. As soon as the application is electronically submitted, our Adoption Coordinator will send an initial response email to the applicant thanking them for their application.
