It is with a sad heart that we announce the closing of Big Apple Bull Terrier Rescue.
We are forever grateful to our supporters and adopters and most of all to the dogs, who kept us humble and introduced us to so many good and decent people.
We remain responsible for all the dogs we placed, until the end of their days, so if you adopted a dog from us and can no longer keep it, contact us and we will rehome your bullie in an equally loving household. All prior adoption contracts remain in force, and this website and our Facebook page will remain available for training and health referrals, bully news, and other things "bull terrier."
We wish we could continue, and this has been a terribly painful decision; however, we remain as a resource for those with questions, and as a helping hand to other reputable rescue groups who continue to do this wonderful and necessary work. We urge you to support them: their names and websites are listed below and they will adopt to this area. (All are 501c3 federally-recognized charitable organizations.)
Bull Terrier Rescue of Virginia (Serving a large portion of the East Coast) www.btrva.org Click here for their Facebook page.
Bull Terrier Club of America's Rescue Welfare Trust: (the national breed rescue organization)
http://www.btca.com/btca_rescue/rescue_frame.htm Click your state and neighboring states on their map to see some of the available dogs and to email the rescue coordinators in your area. (Their website is not always kept up to date; they usually have many more dogs available than are listed.) Click here for their Facebook page. Feel free to contact us if you are having difficulty navigating their website or reaching their representatives.
Blue Ridge Bull Terrier Club (based in Virginia, but adopt to other states in the region) http://www.brbtc.com/ Their Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/brbtc
Recycla-bull Terrier Rescue (Based in South Carolina) www.rcbtr.org Click here for their Facebook page.
(If you're interested in a miniature bull terrier, contact the Miniature Bull Terrier Club of America rescue committee , the national rescue group for mini bullies.)
If you live beyond the East Coast, email us and we will tell you the reputable bull terrier rescuers closest to you.
Unfortunately, we can not recommend the other bull terrier rescue organization working in this immediate area. However, Sean Casey Animal Rescue, based in Brooklyn, is a wonderful group and sometimes has bull terriers for adoption.
Rescue groups are staffed by volunteers and often have dogs available that are not shown on their websites yet. Your best bet is to fill out an application first so they can try to match a bully with your family and lifestyle. As always, feel free to contact us for assistance or advice. info@BigAppleBullies.com
