3.31.20 New to MPBR- Meet Pecan


Hi, I’m Pecan πŸ‘‹πŸ» I’m the newest nut to make my way to MPBR. I had to stay in Texas for a little longer than some of my other brothers and sisters so I could be treated for Parvo. I've made a full recovery, am very healthy, and can't wait to meet my forever family.

From the Foster: Pecan is a little spitfire who loves playing and running around with her foster sister. She has lots of puppy energy and loves to play fetch or chase her toys around the room. She is most content sprawled out on the couch chewing a bone. She loves people and other dogs. She's very smart and a quick learner. She's a sweet little girl and is so excited to find a forever family to snuggle and play with her.

3.30.20 New to MPBR - Super Soft & Restocked!


Meet the new litterSuper Soft and Restocked🐾


Mom, Novelle
We are 2 weeks old today. Our eyes are starting to open. We are really growing fast and are very healthy. We get around pretty well and love to snuggle under the blankets. We mostly sleep and eat right now. Our momma takes great care of us. We will be available for adoption when we are 8 weeks old.










Boys πŸ’™ 
Northern, White Cloud, Kirkland, Marcal, Tesco, & Scott

Girls πŸ’– 
Coronet, Charmin, Cottenelle, Caprice. Our sweet Angel Soft received her wings hours after birth. Despite efforts to revive, we were unfortunately unable to save her.

3.28.20 The Nut Litter


In February, we took in a litter of 14 puppies now known as the “Nut Litter”. Four of those puppies came down with parvo a few days after they entered their foster home. We were able to treat everyone (with your support), all four recovered, and are now back in their foster home. The treatment has unfortunately left us with another high, unexpected vet bill. If you are in a position where you can help, please donate here.

3.25.20 Kaisa


March has been an amazing month! Almost all of our dogs have pending applications, all but one. Insert Kaisa.

This girl would love to find someone who is home often or a family who can include her in their day to day life. She currently lives with a dog but prefers to be the only animal. Do you have time to learn more about Kaisa? Is there anyone out there willing to give this older girl a chance?

Please visit www.mnpitbull.com to fill out an application so you can meet one on one.

Wouldn't it be great if Kaisa found her home in March too?

3.12.20 Volunteer of the Month- Meet Beth


February 2020 Volunteer of the Month- 

Meet Beth!




How did you find out about Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue?

2 years ago, I was at a Bauhaus Brewery where MPBR was holding an adoption event. I fell in love with the puppy snuggles and started following their page. Pit bulls have had my heart ever since. 

Why did you decide to volunteer for MPBR?

I started volunteering with MPBR because I love pit bulls and organizations that help rescue and advocate for them. My house association has a two-dog policy and since I have two dogs already, I couldn't Foster but wanted to help any other way that I could.

How long have you been volunteering with the rescue?

I just recently became a volunteer actually (February 2020)! 😊

Kissing Booth
What was the last thing you volunteered for?
Since starting in February, I helped as a Handler for a puppy at an adoption event, helped with a spay vet transport, and my most recent volunteer experience was helping set up and answer questions at the Kissing Booth! So many people came out to the event to show their support for the organization; it was incredible!!
  











Do you have any pets of your own?

Two dogs- Hannah (11 year old German Shepard Chow Chow mix) and Addison (1 year old pittie)

Two cats- Miley (cute fat chunk 6 year old baby) and Lily (little orange tabby 5 year old baby) 




How would your pets describe you? 

As a fun mama who gives way too many kisses and snuggles but goes for long walks and has lots of dog park dates.


Where is your favorite dog-friendly place to take your pups? 

Fish Lake Dog Park because of all the dog friends that are there for my pups to play with. Bauhaus, Headflyer, Wicked Wort or any other dog friendly brewery :D and Home Depot in the winter because it's an easy way to get in a good walk when it's too cold to be outside.

When you're not surrounded by dogs, what can you be found doing?
Eating a burger and drinking a cold beer with my FiancΓ© or at the gym trying to burn off all the beer (balance, right? haha). I can also be found planning my FiancΓ© and I's wedding in Maui!!


Do you have a favorite memory that happened while you were volunteering?

I was Lime's handler at an adoption event and after the 2 hours she was TUCKED OUT so I got to snuggle with her in my arms. Puppy snuggles are the best!

Do you have any advice for current or future volunteers?

If you're thinking about volunteering, you should jump in and do it because there are pups every single day who need help. Even if you're busy and think you might only be able to help a little, a little can still make a huge impact on an animal who needs help. If you're a current OR future volunteer- you're amazing and I hope you don't stop trying to make the world a better place for animals. :)


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

Each month an active volunteer is featured on our website & receives a gift card as a thank you. This is just a small way for us to show our appreciation for the dedication our volunteers have for this rescue. We are 100% volunteer based and we couldn’t do this without each and every one of our members
