Pit Bull Rescue, Richmond Virginia - Ring Dog Rescue
Ring Dog Rescue is a rescue group dedicated to the "Pit Bull type dogs", which is defined as any dog having bulldog lineage.
We are a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization and are currently listing adoptable pit bulls from, not only Ring Dog Rescue, but our
other rescue friends and those who have opened their door to an orphaned pit bull in private rescue.

Chris Moran opens a collection of his work to benefit RDR @ The Mill starting Sept 19th!
Opening will be Thursday 9/19 from 8-10pm with free appetizers (while supplies last) and drink specials at The Mill on MacArthur all proceeds go to benefit RDR!
Chris Moran has been a long time mainstay in the Richmond, and national, independent music community documenting both live performances and intimate moments backstage, in the van, and on the bus for well over 15 years.
Throughout this time Chris has befriended many small town heroes on their way towards mainstream and large-scale success. Because of this he has earned the trust, respect, and adoration of many touring bands with whom he has joined for their journey across the North American continent. Throughout these adventures he has captured not only the energetic live performances but also the moments behind the scenes where most of us can only imagine what might go on in the lives of these fledgling rock stars and their lives on the road.
Chris Moran, a contributing photographer for punknews.org and whose photos have graced the covers and inserts of dozens of albums, presents a collection of work spanning the last decade to be on display at The Mill on MacArthur.
Sales from this exhibit will benefit local non-profit organization Ring Dog Rescue.
Prints are available for purchase at $20 (unframed 8X10) or $40 (framed 8X10). Larger format prints are available upon request.
Obama Comes Out Against Dog Breed-Specific Legislation, Joins The Fight For Pit Bulls
Tails are wagging in Washington this week.
Not only did the Obama family introduce Sunny the puppy to her adoring country, but the White House also came out against breed-specific legislation -- regulations and laws that restrict ownership of dogs by breed, pit bulls being the most common target.
Groups like the American Bar Association have said for years that these sorts of restrictions do harm -- to families, to dogs, to due process and to the economy -- without actually improving public safety.
Based on a statement that the White House put out about a week ago, it would seem that Obama agrees. "Breed-Specific Legislation Is a Bad Idea" begins the White House's official response to an online petition, signed by more than 30,000 people, asking for laws that target dogs by breed to be outlawed at a federal level.
Obama's statement doesn't speak to federal legislative efforts. But, the White House does adopt the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's community-based ideas for better methods of improving public safety:
"We don't support breed-specific legislation -- research shows that bans on certain types of dogs are largely ineffective and often a waste of public resources...As an alternative to breed-specific policies, the CDC recommends a community-based approach to prevent dog bites. And ultimately, we think that's a much more promising way to build stronger communities of pets and pet owners."
Lisa LaFontaine, who is president of the Washington Humane Society (which received a donation from the Obamas in honor of Sunny the puppy) and a longtime opponent of breed-specific legislation, told The Huffington Post she thinks this statement will provide a big boost.
"The White House is such a bully pulpit for important issues," she says, with her daughter's pit bull, Lila, napping nearby. "And certainly for them to come down against this type of discrimination I think will give pause to any communities that are thinking about putting something like this in place, and certainly will fuel the work that's already being done by advocates to overturn legislation that already exists...It's a really happy day."
Madelyn's Friends Foundation, or MFFRVA, is a greater Richmond area non-profit. Our sole purpose is to help fund emergency and specialty care for animals whose caregivers cannot afford it.
We first heard of Phoenix's situation when Ring Dog Rescue contacted us to see if we could help. We are pleased to say we were able to provide a significant amount of money to help pay for Phoenix's ongoing treatment.
Like us on Facebook and check out our site frequently (www.mffrva.com) for updates and future success stories. We would like to thank Ring Dog Rescue for giving us this opportunity to help Phoenix become one of Madelyn's Friends.

Popsicles for Pups is an enrichment program for sheltered animals. Each week Ring Dog Rescue volunteers will visit Powhatan Animal Shelter to make frozen treats for the staff to hand out throughout the week.
