PREVIOUSLY ADOPTED FBR DOGS: If you need to get in touch with us regarding a previously adopted FBR dog, for ANY reason, please contact our Adoption Coordinator, Terese Shaw directly at or (559) 474-6728

REGARDING GENERAL SURRENDER & RESCUE REQUESTS: Our shelter currently has a Wait List for incoming ADULT dogs.   Puppies under the age of 6 months old will be placed in foster homes IF they are available.

Please know that our shelter always runs full, but if you have a dog that you would like us to consider for intake into our shelter – we will do our best to help if/when we have room. Please DO NOT show up at the shelter with a dog unannounced – we are not an open admission shelter. We only take in dogs with prior arrangements made.

Please also note that we only take in dogs that are or at least appear to be primarily “bully breed”. This includes: Pit Bulls, All Bulldogs (American, English, Old English), Staffordshire Terriers, Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Bull Mastiffs, American Bullies, etc.

If you are having trouble with the submission form above you can send an email directly to us at

We are not able to pick up stray dogs running at large. If you need a stray dog pick up, please contact your local animal control. If you have found a stray dog, please ask around the area in which the dog was found to make sure any neighbors don’t recognise him. You can take your found dog to any vet hospital to get scanned for a possible microchip, and can also ask the vet if the dog looks familiar to them. We also suggest that you post fliers up at local vet offices & pet stores.

Here is a handy pet flier generator:

Make sure you have scanned the local lost & found ads on Craigslist & the Classifieds.

We also invite you to post a “Found” ad on our Facebook page. Please include the date & location where the dog was found, a photo and a way in which people can contact you.

Here is another good resource for info on what to do if you found a stray:
