Vision & Mission Statements Volunteer!

Vision Statement:
Pit Bull Rescue Central envisions a compassionate world where pit bulls and pit bull mixes reside in responsible, loving homes and where their honor and positive image is restored and preserved.

Mission Statement:
As an organization, Pit Bull Rescue Central (PBRC) will:

  • Help relieve suffering of and prevent cruelty to dogs identified as pit bulls and mixes thereof, through the public dissemination of educational information.

  • Help reduce the number of homeless pit bulls and mixes thereof, through the public dissemination of educational information.
  • Facilitate the rescue and placement of homeless dogs identified primarily as pit bulls and mixes thereof, into responsible homes.
  • Participate in fundraising in order to provide caretakers of pit bulls and mixes thereof, with the means to:

    - seek veterinary treatment
    - spay or neuter
    - provide food, shelter or other basic necessities
    - assist a dog to prevent it from being treated in a cruel or inhumane fashion

Disclaimer and Recommendations

PBRC recommends that anyone interested in adopting a dog proceed with their own temperament evaluation. Help from a professional is recommended if the potential owner is not familiar with temperament testing. The evaluation should be done by someone who understands the breed and its particular characteristics.

In general, Pit Bulls and AmStaffs make excellent pets, but like other breeds, it's possible that some of them carry undesirable traits such as human aggression, shyness, instability, etc, due to poor breeding or previous irresponsible/abusive ownership. These animals should NOT be made available for adoption unless they have successfully completed a strict rehabilitation program with a professional.

Dog aggression is a normal trait for this breed...
human aggression is not.

For more information about Pit Bull type dogs, please read PBRC's Breed-Info.

We also strongly recommend that the caretakers of any Pit Bull to be adopted thoroughly screen applicants. Meeting the applicant, contacting references, and a strict home check should be standard procedure before a dog is placed in a home. Remember, Pit Bull type dogs often attract the wrong kind of owners and vigilant screening is a MUST.

For more information about how to provide the best care for these dogs and select the right kind of homes for them, please read PBRC's Recommendations to dog shelters and rescue organizations.
