9.30.19 Business Bark Out- Rah Raw *


September 30, 2019 | by Corey Lundgren (Bark Out Editor)

Today’s Business Bark Out features Raw Rah Premium Raw Pet Food. Located in Osseo Minnesota, Raw Rah sells human grade, restaurant quality meat and treats for your pets.
Owners, Max & Megan



Have you or someone you know had a pet with fur issues or allergies? Odds are the pet’s food isn’t helping with those issues. The raw diet helps with those pesky issues tremendously, taking out all the preservatives & chemicals that are found in kibble. Are you interested in the raw diet but have no idea where to start? That’s where Raw Rah comes in. They have a 6-week starter guide on how to introduce the diet into your furry family’s life. Raw Rah’s online shop has an option for in-store pickup or they have a shipping method as well. If you’re ever looking for healthy food or treats, please give them a follow!

Do you have a love for pitties or support the breed in some way? We'd love to give you your very own Bark Out. Please email our Event/Social Media Coordinator at ashley@mnpitbull.com.

9.29.19 COMING SOON- Meet the Puppies


Our next adoption event is going to be a blast! The ‘Annie litter’ will be making their debut and they can’t wait to meet you! 

See them October 12th from 1-3 PM at Nokomis Tattoo during our Adoption Meet & Greet!

Can’t make it or aren’t able to adopt and want to still help our rescue? One of the puppies had a rupture in his toe bone that led to an amputation. Please help us cover the veterinary care, general care, and transport of this litter here.

9.28.19 Hello from Kaisa


Kaisa

Hello future family! My name is Kaisa (KISE-ah). 


I was born on June 20, 2014 and came to MPBR when I was just a pup as part of an unwanted litter. My foster family adopted me when I was 6-months old, but with a growing family, their life has become too busy and I’m sad I’m not the center of attention anymore. I’m looking for someone who’s home a lot and loves to snuggle because that’s my favorite thing to do. Please give me a chance by going to www.mnpitbull.com to learn more 🐾

Topanga-Ready to find her forever home!
Thank you Dogs Of A Good Society for helping us cover some of the cost of Topanga’s treatment for Parvo.



CPV (Parvo) is highly contagious and is spread from dog to dog by direct or indirect contact with their feces. Vaccines can prevent this infection, but mortality can reach 91% in untreated cases. Topanga (and her brother, Cory) were some of the lucky ones 💚

We still have $3,715 to pay if you would like to help, please click here or you can call AERC directly. +1 (651) 501-3766

9.16.19 Business Bark Out- Downtown Dogs


September 16, 2019 | by Corey Lundgren (Bark Out Editor)

For today’s business Bark Out we’re featuring Downtown Dogs, Dog Boarding and Daycare! Downtown Dogs is located just outside of downtown Minneapolis. They have convenient hours Monday through Friday from 6:45 A.M to 9 P.M & 8 A.M to 9 P.M Saturday and Sunday. It includes a massive playroom indoors and a space outdoors for your furry family member, of which both are monitored by knowledgeable staff. They also have individual kennel space for dogs who need their own quiet time.

Dewie @ DTD

Downtown dogs is very rescue friendly- they even foster dogs themselves, usually around 100 dogs a year! They donate leftover food and a portion of their profits to local rescues. Downtown Dogs helps MPBR with a safe place to keep our pups when we can’t find a foster right away, and I can’t say enough about how good they treat them! If you’re ever looking for a daycare or a place to board your dog, please give Downtown Dogs Boarding and Daycare a try!

Bacon loved DTD!




Do you have a love for pitties or support the breed in some way? We'd love to give you your very own Bark Out. Please email our Event/Social Media Coordinator at ashley@mnpitbull.com.

9.12.19 Featured Foster - August Edition



Meet Chelsea!





Moose FKA Clover
Who was your first foster?

Our first foster, who was supposed to be a temporary foster, was for a dog named Clover. We decided to add her to our pack and she is now named Moose :D 


Babo 💚 Moose












Babo

Who is your current foster?

Our most recent foster was Babo, who was adopted recently and is now known as Reggie.










Why did you start volunteering for Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue?

My family and I started volunteering for MPBR after we fell in love with this very misunderstood breed. MPBR exhibits true values and strong principles for all the pups it saves and we are honored to be a part of it.

Shilah & Moose
How long have you been volunteering with Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue?

We are newbies :D We are in our first year with the rescue.

Do you have any pets?

We now have 2 dogs, Shilah who is a 13 year old beagle/bassett and Moose who is an 8 month pittie mix. We also have a 6 year old cat, Lola.


Where is your favorite dog friendly place to take your doggo?


We love bringing our pups on car rides and up to our neighborhood park.


Do you have a favorite memory with one of your fosters? 

My favorite memory with Babo was waking up with him before my girls got up and enjoying "alone" time outside drinking coffee and playing in the yard.


................................................................................................................................................................

Each month one of our foster pawrents receives a gift card as a thank you.This is our small way of showing appreciation for the dedication our volunteers have to this rescue. Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue is 100% volunteer based- no shelters here! Each dog we are able to save is because a foster is willing to open their home for us
