The poor economy is making work tough for a Fresno-based animal rescue group.A Fresno-based dog rescue group is facing some challenges in this poor economy.

The Fresno Bully Rescue focuses on finding loving homes for abused pit bulls. The non-profit group started just over a year ago. It's the second of its kind in California.

The group is run by volunteers who spend well-over a thousand dollars every month taking care of the animals. But, with a decline in donations and a lack of volunteers, it's become a struggle.

Tricia Smith, Fresno Bully Rescue volunteer said: "If we had the funding and the volunteers, crystal and I could get it done."

Joseph Marzett, from Fresno said: "I think that every dog should have the opportunity to have a home and have somebody to care about them."

Since the group started, the Fresno Bully Rescue has rescued 151 dogs and has adopted 93 of them.

They currently have 50 dogs up for adoption.
