Last year’s Ride to Rescue proceeds enabled us to rescue, evaluate, train, house and place dogs from dog fighting raids in Indiana from 2011 and 2012. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for participating in this event for much deserving dogs, like Honey who was rescued from a dog fighting raid in Gary, Indiana.
Please note this is a “human only” event – the only exception will be dogs from the rescue groups.
Casa Del Toro Pit Bull Rescue would like to thank our 2nd Annual Ride to Rescue Festival & Charity Ride Sponsors!
