About Us


Come see our adoptable dogs at PetSmart in Columbia this Saturday from noon to three!

As always, we need new foster homes so we can pull more dogs for our rescue.  We have puppies that need foster homes now!

Adopting A Friend

All interested potential adopters are first asked to fill out a simple application so we can get to know more about you and your home environment.  Once this application is approved and you meet a dog you're interested in adopting, we'll do a home visit to make sure that the dog fits in well with your family, and check with your vet to make sure all of your current animals are up-to-date on all their vaccinations.  Then you're ready to take your new family member home!

All adoptions require a $150 donation, which helps to cover the costs of the spay/neuter surgery, all age-appropriate vaccinations and a microchip.

Who We Are

Bright Beginnings Rescue is a small bully-breed rescue group founded by members of the Columbia community who worked in a local high-kill shelter environment and were heartbroken to see amazing dogs selected for euthanasia solely based on their breed type.  We now work to place these misunderstood dogs into new homes and help restore their good name in the community.

All of our adoptable dogs are cared for in foster homes while awaiting adoption, so they get the socialization of being in a loving home environment before you take them home.  Our fosters work hard to socialize and train their fosters, and care for them just as they would one of their own pets.


Come Visit Us

All of our dogs are cared for in foster homes while awaiting adoption; as such, we do not have a physical location, but you can see all of our adoptable dogs at adoption events at local pet stores every weekend.

The first week of every month we are at Lizzi & Rocco's on Saturday from 11-2, and every other Saturday we're at PetSmart on Stadium from 12-3.
