Many of the dogs came from the newly opened Shorter, Alabama location.

Within 4 days, all 100 dogs found a home.

In an interview with Laurie Simmons, CEO of Big Dog Ranch Rescue, The Bama Buzz learned several more tidbits about the MrBeast project.

As seen in the video several surprise checks and gifts were handed out to adopters including a $100,000 check to Big Dog Ranch Rescue.

“At the end of the adoption event he (MrBeast) surprised Big Dog Ranch Rescue with a $100,000 gift which allows us to keep our mission going and save more dogs. Every dollar matters here. Dollars raised equals the amount of lives we can save.”

According to Simmons, MrBeast also went the extra mile by providing adopters with pet insurance and food for the dogs for a lifetime.

If all this talk about adopting dogs makes you want to go out and bring home a new friend, Big Dog Ranch Rescue is here to help.

“I’m sure there are families that would love to adopt one of our wonderful dogs or puppies in Alabama,  they just don’t know about us or haven’t seen us. We currently have over 100 puppies at our Shorter Alabama facility and 325 dogs ready for adoption. And they all come fully healthy, spayed and neutered and vaccinated.”
