Tell me about Fresno Bully Rescue. How did it get started?
Shelters became flooded with bully-breed dogs, most of which never made it out alive. FBR saw the need for rescue of this often misunderstood and overpopulated breed and formed Fresno Bully Rescue as a result of that. Fresno Bully Rescue not only works to serve the central valley, but also the entire state of California. Its the only breed-specific rescue with a shelter facility of its kind in the entire state.
