My name is Elisabeth and I am the founder and director of a bully breed rescue based in the Cincinnati Ohio area - Bark Ark Bully Rescue- http://www.barkark.org
Cincinnati currently has a ban and Ohio is the only state with STATE WIDE breed specific legislation, so it is certainly a challenging place to try to save pitties.
I started the rescue in 2005. I was in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina helping with animal search and rescue. The first dog I rescued was a pit bull - the first pit bull I had ever met - and it changed my life forever.
