So welcome to the busy world of Pacific Northwest Pit Bull Rescue!
To date we have adopted out 30 dogs in 11 months.... thats almost 3 dogs a month!
So why 11 months you ask? Well PNWPBR offically started in July of 2006, and became offically Incorporated with the Washington Secretary of State in January of 2007.
We are a new group and we continue to grow every day. Our members are growing, the number of dogs we have helped is growing and our community is growing with us!
A short recap of the year of 2007 so far to catch you up to speed:
PNWPBR obtains Incorporated status with the Washington Secretary of State

Gaia and her babies are pulled from Yakima, WA and brought into the rescue. This was our first litter raised as a group and a great experience.
