Rehome a Dog

Resources for pit bull families

The decision to rehome a dog is one that comes with big emotions and is often riddled with hard choices.  We understand that circumstances may make pet ownership difficult or impossible at times and that finding a safe home for your pet can be a selfless act of love.

In an ideal world, rescues (like us) would have boundless foster space and adequate funding to jump-in and accomodate every dog in a desperate situation.  Unfortunately, that simply isn't the reality. We are a small volunteer run organization with limited intake space.  We are not able to accept stray dogs or owner surrenders at this time. But that doesn't mean we can't help.  We hope the information below can provide pit bull families with resources to make rehoming a dog safer, easier and more thoughtful.

We strongly encourage anyone considering rehoming their dog, to begin with a visit to Rehome by Adopt-A-Pet.  This powerful resource guides you through the steps of creating a winning profile, reviewing applications and meeting potential adopters so you can ensure your dog finds a loving new family.  Click the Rehome button below to begin.
