Today’s honoree for National Pit Bull Awareness Month is Heather Morris. Heather was nominated by Toni Phillips.
Heather founded “Don’t BULLY Me Rescue” in Austin, Texas, to pull ‘death row’ pit bulls from many shelters across Texas. Heather houses several dogs/fosters in her home, single mom, works a full-time job & is sincerely dedicated/devoted to our bully buds. Despite challenges, Heather presses on to save as many pit bulls as she can, using carefully screened foster homes and then networks the foster dogs to get them into homes. Her hard work and devotion to the bully’s resulted in a recent change to the pit bull adoption policy in Waco, Texas. The shelter now allows pit bull adoptions, where before they were rescue only or killed. I believe Heather deserves recognition for her devotion. She’s a good, well-rounded rescue!
Don’t BULLY Me Rescue works to improve the lives and restore a positive image of pit bulls through outreach, education, initiation of offering a spaying/neutering program for families who adopt or already own a Pit Bull type dog, and educating the community about responsible pet ownership.
Don’t BULLY Me Rescue envisions a world in which the American Pit Bull Terrier and all Pit Bull type dogs are free from neglect, abuse and discrimination. They strive to reduce the number of pit bulls in shelters across the state of Texas.
On behalf of Bless the Bullys and the National Pit Bull Awareness Campaign, thank you, Heather, for your love and dedication to pit bulls, and for all the positive change you are creating in your community. Keep up the fantastic work!
