About Southern Nevada Bully Breed Rescue
Southern Nevada Bully Breed Rescue (SNBBR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to saving shelter, stray, and abandoned bully breed dogs. Our goal is to responsibly rescue and re-home these pets while implementing community outreach programs to promote responsible pet ownership and nurture breed ambassadors. SNBBR is the only local rescue organization which operates a facility providing shelter, food, training, and tender loving care to homeless bully breed dogs until the dog finds his or her forever home. The facility and the care of the dogs in the rescue is funded solely by donations. For more information and how you can help Las Vegas' neediest dogs, visit www.SNBBR.org.
About Las Vegas Boxer Rescue
The non-profit Las Vegas Boxer Rescue, Inc. (LVBR) is based out of Las Vegas. Unlike other animal rescues, LVBR receives, evaluates, and transports abandoned and needy boxers and places them immediately into caring and loving foster family homes. This approach allows foster caregivers an opportunity to learn more about each future companion animal, to determine its behavior and ability to adapt socially, and identify likes, dislikes, and possible illnesses. With a modest donation, deserving boxers are available for adoption, and all revenue generated is used to fund future LVBR rescue, maintenance, and healthcare needs. For more information about fostering, adopting, volunteering, or donations visit www.lvbr.org.
