Because every dog deserves a chance
Where Mayday Dogs Come From
Local, national and international animal welfare groups reach out to Mayday Pit Bull Rescue to save dogs that are not placeable elsewhere, because they know that Mayday will take on dogs that others won’t. Dogs that are not medically, behaviorally otherwise placeable elsewhere often face death and have just one last chance - Mayday.
Mayday also regularly receives lists with anywhere from 20 to hundreds of dogs scheduled to be euthanized, and takes dogs as capacity and funding allow (and often takes them anyway when they don’t). In addition, Mayday sometimes conducts “boots on the ground” rescue operations when alerted to an animal in need in the wild.
Some rescue organizations that Mayday works with include: ASPCA, The Humane Society, Animal Rescue Corps, Best Friends Animal Society, Cairo Animal Rescue Team, as well as smaller local organizations dealing with catastrophes.
Notable Rescue Situations
Mayday has taken dogs from several notable rescue situations, such as the 367 dogfighting bust (the second largest in the United States), the Polk County, Georgia dogfighting bust, Operation Broken Chain in Tennessee, and large hoarding & dogfighting busts in California and Arizona.
