Thank you for donating to Dolly's Medical Fund!

Earlier this year we rescued Dolly, who was in horrific condition, from the First State Animal Center and SPCA. Her ongoing severe skin issues were draining our medical funds, but thanks to your donations, Dolly's skin issues have resolved and she was adopted by her foster daddy!






Monetary Donations

Response-a-Bull Rescue is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization that operates solely on the support of public donations, and any amount you are able to contribute is going directly to the dogs in our care. With your support, we are able to save the lives of pit bulls and the misunderstood breeds in need of rescue that would otherwise be euthanized in overcrowded animal control facilities. Your donations allow us to continue providing the best possible care to all the dogs in our shelter and give them the chance to finally know what it means to find their loving forever homes.

Donations of ANY amount are always greatly appreciated–just $10 will buy a toy that will entertain one of the dogs for hours while he’s in his crate, waiting to be adopted! Please click the Donate button to donate so we can continue to save the dogs who so desperately need our help. If your donation is going toward a specific fundraising cause (ie. an event, spay/neuter surgeries, etc.), please make a notation when submitting via PayPal or make a note in the memo portion of your check.

All donations are tax deductible! Thank you so much for your generosity and support!

Dog Walkers 

First-time dog walkers go through a short orientation and training. Once you have completed the training, you can sign up to walk the dogs as often as you’d like!

Note: You must be 18 years of age or 16 to accompany an adult.


Do you have room in your home and some extra love to give? Foster one of our loving adopt-a-bulls! The hectic, noisy shelter environment is tough on the dogs and sometimes they just need some time away to decompress while they wait for their forever homes. Response-a-Bull Rescue provides everything you need to care for your house guest!


Response-a-Bull Rescue holds many different fundraising and community outreach events during the year, and volunteers are always needed for setup and cleanup,  event table coverage, and in some cases, dog handling. Great opportunity for all ages!

I had a desire to volunteer at a nonprofit organization for a while, but had never found the right fit! Well - I found it! Response-a-Bull Rescue! Such big-hearted and passionate people working together to save those that are misunderstood and need a second chance at life. My favorite part about volunteering is seeing the underdogs have a second chance at life! The ones that, if at a kill shelter, would have never been adopted (or even survived) if we had not taken them in. I believe there is a dog out there for everyone and it just takes time to find a great match! Some dogs a few months, others maybe a few years - but with the help of some awesome volunteers, there are always happy endings! I also enjoy volunteering with such a great group of people! I was always told to surround myself with great people and I think I’ve achieved that. The staff and volunteers at Response-a-Bull are very passionate, dedicated, and caring. I really enjoy volunteering with all of them and hanging out outside of the shelter.
