Phoenix Rising Rescue is a foster based rescue meaning that they do not operate out of a facility. All of their rescue dogs are either with Carrie, PRR Founder, or in foster homes with other loving families. They aspire to have their own facility one day, but for now, they are still in foster based homes until they are adopted.
Why do they only focus on bully breeds? Pit Bulls and other bully breeds have been given a “bad rap” by the media. The truth about this magnificent breed is that they are incredibly intelligent and can be great family dogs.
The majority of the population think they’re out of their minds for how much time and energy they invest into what’s done at Phoenix Rising Rescue. Most don’t understand that dog rescue is not a hobby…it’s a lifestyle! They intend to change the world’s perception of Pit bulls and to rescue as many of these fabulous dogs as possible one pitty at a time!
