Missouri Bully Alliance

Missouri K9 Friends educates and advocates for ending BSL (breed specific legislation) in Missouri. The Missouri Bully Alliance recruits volunteers at the local level in municipalities with BSL to contact those elected officials asking for the repeal of breed specific ordinances, and asking that those ordinances be replaced with non-breed specific ordinances to help keep the community safe and families together. The Missouri Bully Alliance also is working at the state level, encouraging state law makers to protect families from BSL in Missouri.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Placing dogs in need into foster homes, where they are nursed back to health, emotionally and physically, then placing them into approved adoptive homes after medically cleared, spayed/neutered and microchipped. We are educating the community on the importance of spay/neuter, proper vet care and animal welfare through our social media platforms and pushing for prosecution of animal abusers by helping law enforcement and working with prosecuting attorneys.

To help get dogs spayed and neuter wherever we see the opportunity with helping covering the cost and providing transportation if needed. Posting information about proper vet care needed by dogs on social media and encouraging the public to report neglect and abuse when they see it in their community.

We feel capable with the volunteers and supporters we have in place. We work with animal rescue networkers in getting dogs spayed and neutered whenever we bring puppies in from families have unaltered pets. Our social media platform continues to grow, we are capable of getting information about proper animal care and how to spot neglect and abuse.

Every dog we have brought into our rescue has been altered, in addition to family pets that do not need rescue. There is still much more work to do here.
We found Trooper's (lab found in ditch near death) abuser, had charged pressed and almost had a trial. We are still working on re-filing charges against Trooper's abuser.
