The Realization Of A Dream 

A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT

 

For some, dog rescue is a vocation, a calling. It is so deeply ingrained in our soul that it gives us the power to move incredible mountains in order to help animals in need. MPR was built on this strength, passion and determination. For the last 2 decades this organization has proven its resilience, commitment and determination.

 

Thanks to the dedication of our volunteers and the support of Pit Bull lovers across the nation, we have reached and surpassed many goals, always looking forward to taking on bigger projects to better the life of the dogs we love. Our biggest enterprise to date: The construction of our very own Pit Bull shelter, right here in the heart of the Midwest.

 

Having our own facility was a dream MPR cherished for as long as we remember. Our team spent years preparing for this venture, researching the best location, observing how successful rescue groups operate their facility, and most importantly, allying with people who shared our vision, passion, and determination. We made sure our group was solid and ready, and we demonstrated over the past 20 years our ability to successfully operate a rescue organization with no paid staff.

MPR has touched the lives of thousands of Pit Bull dogs in the Midwest. The organization has provided hope, love and peace not only to Pit Bulls in need, but to the people who needed a special companion in their life and to those who needed a purposeful mission. MPR has only reached a small part of its destiny. We still have a million more mountains to move, in the name of the dogs we love.

 

Please join the team and contribute to MPR's shelter.  Your donation will make a world of difference. I promise you.
