BBS Rescue Spotlight: Bella-Reed Pit Bull Rescue
It’s impossible to deny animal rescues are doing a great service to homeless and hurting dogs around the country. BestBullySticks is grateful for all their work. Bella-Reed Pit Bull Rescue out of Southampton, PA is a great shelter helping pittie pups in their area, making a difference for this stereotyped breed. Their accomplishments shouldn’t be overlooked. However, in their minds, as long as a dog is saved at the end of the day, whether by them or another organization, it’s been a great day.

We then decided we wanted (needed) to do more for this amazing breed and turned it into a rescue on January 26 of this year. We have only been up and running as a nonprofit rescue for a little over 4 months and have adopted out 11 of our dogs to AMAZING homes!
BRPBR president Melissa Mariner adopted her first pit bull back in '05 (McCready, AKA Reed, one of the mascots of the rescue).

Her lifelong dream was to have a rescue, and with the most amazing board directors and volunteers, BRPBR was formed. Read more
