Dog rescues come in all shapes and sizes. In the state of Maine, we love our dogs. I know most people in most states do as well, but here in Maine, we are the place over-crowded shelters send their dogs because they know there is a much greater chance of success for the dog to find a new home.

Pitbulls struggle with this as a breed simply because of the misconceptions that many people have about the breed. According to a report by WABI, one rescue in Waterville is hoping to change that.

"Pulled From The Pits" is a Pitbull rescue that is based in Waterville, and operated by Kelly Oullette who started this great "foster-based" rescue back in 2019 to help Pitbull dogs that are often at high risk for being euthanized.

Many of the dogs are local dogs, but some come from far away. So far, more than 1000 dogs have been saved by Oullette's organization.

Pulled From The Pits hopes to also help educate people about the breed, and also remove some of the stigma that is associated with Pitbull breeds.

It's truly a labor of love. If you would like more information, or to find out how you can help, check out their website at pulledfromthepits.com
