Measle's Animal Haven

Pit Bull Rescue and Sanctuary

welcome to Measle's Animal Haven Pit Bull Rescue and Sanctuary

Welcome!!  Our Central Ohio organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue and sanctuary for pit bull terriers and senior dogs. We promote responsible pet ownership and provide pit bull terrier education, advocacy, and rehabilitation. 

We do not have a shelter facility. When we have space available in our foster homes, we focus on saving the most needy dogs. We also fund free spay/neuter surgeries for pit bulls through our PIT FIX program.


Hey -- we're talking to YOU, Reynoldsburg and Bexley (both Central Ohio cities where pit bulls are BANNED)!!

Breed-specific legislation is inherently ineffective because it attempts to regulate the wrong end of the leash, instead of focusing on enforcing laws already in place (e.g., leash laws) or penalizing criminal and irresponsible owners of all breeds of dogs.

Bad things are still happening to pit bulls in Bexley (where pit bulls have been banned since 1991) and Reynoldsburg (banned since 1996).

It's time for Bexley and Reynoldsburg to catch up with the State of Ohio and enact laws to regulate dogs based on their behavior, not their breed.
