Hughesville, MD – Pets In Need In Southern Maryland, a 501© 3 non-profit Animal Rescue, is sounding the alarm as they strive to find loving homes for several at-risk bully breed dogs at the Charles County Animal Care Center (CCACC). The shelter’s policy of not directly adopting out pit bulls and other bully breeds puts these canines in dire need of rescue, relying solely on their approved Rescue Partners for public adoptions.

All dogs at the shelter, including these incredible bullies, are in jeopardy, prompting an urgent call for potential adopters to step forward. Among those in need is Betsy, a white female Pitbull (Staffordshire Bull Terrier) mix, aged around 3 years and 1 month, weighing approximately 50 lbs, and yet to be spayed.

Another heartwarming soul is Cano, a brown male Pitbull (Staffordshire Bull Terrier) mix, just 1-year-old and weighing about 43.1 lbs, still awaiting neutering. Nikita, a fawn and white female Pitbull (Staffordshire Bull Terrier) mix, is also seeking a forever home at just 3 months old, weighing around 26.1 lbs, and yet to be spayed.

Adoption comes with the assurance that all dogs will be altered, fully vetted, and microchipped, all included in the paid adoption fee.

The plight of these at-risk dogs highlights the critical role that rescue organizations play in supporting animal shelters and advocating for humane adoption practices. Working in partnership with shelters like CCACC, Pets In Need, and other rescue partners can make a significant difference in the lives of countless animals.
