WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT RUGAZ RESCUE, INC?
Rescuing pit pulls,
because We should be fighting for Them!
February 2011 brought forth a chain of events that, after
many years, led to Becoming a Florida Not For Profit Incorporation
and filing for a federal 501c, non-profit status and the name change
of Hernando's APBT Rescue. In honor of her own beloved pitbull,
Ruger, and a very special boy named Aztek, who died of neurological
issues just a few months after finding his forever home, our founder, Devilyn,
decided to give the rescue a name that would honor their memories
for years to come. Ruger + Aztek = Rugaz. The impact these loving gentle giants had, and
will continue to have, brought us to our organizations new name:

Rugaz Mission Statement:
Our mission is to foster and re-home abused, neglected, and
abandoned APBTs that are scheduled for euthanasia in Florida Animal
Service Facilities. Additionally, we will make every feasible attempt
to assist individuals who are painstakingly forced to surrender
their Pit Bulls due to emergencies, changes in family structure
and financial instability. Our Education programs will aid families
with unruly Pit Bulls and encourage a stronger bond, while in the
hopes of keeping them together forever. We will always value the
importance of community involvement by continually seeking ways
to educate and promote responsible Pit Bull ownership to the public.
The welfare of our dogs will be placed above all else and we will
strive to make their lives better by any means necessary. Before
our special kids leave us, they will be spayed/neutered, de-wormed,
immunized, micro-chipped, socialized, temperament tested and treated
for any necessary medical needs they may have. We will do our part
to regain respect for the APBT by educating the public and absolutely
only placing only ambassadors of the breed.
