Friends to the Forlorn is dedicated to rescuing any Pit Bull that needs help, regardless of where they come from. Dogs eligible for our program include abandoned dogs that are wandering the streets scared, alone, starving, suffering abuse at the hands of humans, struck by vehicles and left in a ditch to slowly agonize to death, or worse, those who will find themselves used as bait dogs in some fighters yard.
Friends to the Forlorn also works with several Animal Shelters and Animal Control facilities in the region and we regularly pull Pit Bulls from "death row". We are licensed with the state of Georgia and authorized to rescue dogs from shelters that don't adopt out Pit Bulls to the public. Local shelters usually have a heartbreaking number of Pit Bulls and Pit mixes hoping for a chance. Sadly, most of them will not make it out of the shelter alive unless bailed out by Friends to the Forlorn.
