Help a Shelter Program Starting a Pit Bull Rescue

You love pit bulls and would like to help dogs in need, but can't foster at home? Why not become a cyber foster parent?

Start by visiting your local shelter and offer Internet exposure for their homeless pit bulls. The shelter must agree to several conditions. First, you need to make sure that the shelter will adopt out pit bulls OR the shelter is willing to adopt them out through you. Make sure you have the director's approval before listing and dogs. Secondly, the dogs should have several weeks of availability as rushed placements are not recommended. Finally, dogs you would like to list should be spayed/neutered prior to going to their adoptive homes. If the shelter you want to work with meets these conditions, you can participate on listing a dog.

You're welcome to print out any material on the site. We have a page of flyers here. In particular, our Pit Bull Information Packet is full of suggestions and recommendations for shelters.

Once the shelter gives you the go-ahead, there are many places online to advertise,including

Adopt a Pet
Petfinder
Rescue Me
My Pet Harmony

You can add listings for each of the dogs. The descriptions of the dogs should be written with the help of the shelter manager or staff. You'll want to verify their restrictions concerning out-of-state adoptions, fees, adopting to homes with young children and other pets, etc. If you have access to a digital camera, you'll want to take several photos of each dog to include with their listings.

When you are contacted by potential adopters or receive applications, you'll want to print out the information and deliver it to the shelter. The shelter is ultimately responsible for the adoption decision.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact PBRC.
