PPBR is a 100% volunteer based not-for-profit organization. Therefore, we depend on dedicated volunteers with a unified goal – rescuing pit bulls. With locations in Calgary, Lethbridge, and Medicine Hat, there are plenty of opportunities throughout Southern Alberta to make a difference. No matter how much or how little time you have to volunteer, we appreciate every moment you can spare. Whether it’s picking up donations twice a year or walking dogs every week, it all adds up to helping us operate PPBR, and saving vulnerable dogs.

If you are looking for an opportunity to help change minds and perceptions about this loyal misunderstood breed, but don’t know what you can do, here is a list of opportunities:

  • Fundraising

  • Event participation (Adoptathons, Pet Expo, etc.)
