If you are trying to find a home for an APBT, AST or pit bull mix the below information may be of help to you.

For tips and guidance regarding the placement of a stray, please read our Found a Pit Bull page. If you are placing a foster dog or a dog at the shelter, please read: Shelter dogs . Dogs owners, please click here. Finally, our recommendations page is specifically written for rescue organizations and caretakers that are placing pit bulls for adoption.

Note that PBRC is NOT a dog shelter. We provide rescues with educational information in order to increase their dog’s chance of finding a suitable home.

Anyone responsible for placing a dog, should read the "disclaimer" section below before filling out any listing form.

Spay/Neuter Policy
Dogs being listed for adoption should be spay / neutered prior to listing, there should be, no exceptions whether you are a private rescue, or if you are a dog owner looking to rehome your dog it is imperative to spay / neuter to help reduce the numbers of Pit Bulls in shelter and rescue environments. Low cost and free spay/neuter is available: click here.

Photos
We can't stress this enough...a picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to web exposure. The photo is the first thing people notice when they visit your listing. If the dog has a poor picture, visitors may not take the time to read his description and will move on to another dog. If you want to give your dog the best chance possible, please post large, clear pictures of the dog. A good picture can make the difference between a dog who receives a lot of inquiries and one who doesn't.

Form Building Sites

 

The first step in the adoption process is a good adoption application. PBRC is providing free for public use a thorough online application to facilitate the application process for individuals, rescues and shelters placing Pit Bull type dogs. This application covers all questions related to the people applying for a dog. All you have to do is include the link to the form with your listing or in an email to potential adopters, please be sure to let them know the email address where you would like the form sent as they will have to include that on the form and PBRC will forward the application to you as we receive them. If you have any questions please contact adopt@pbrc.net

Disclaimer
We recommend 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 characteristics.

In general, pit bulls make excellent pets, but like other breeds, it's possible that some of them may have undesirable traits such as human aggression, shyness, instability, etc., due to indiscriminate breeding and/or 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 information.

We recommend that the caretakers of any adoptable pit bull thoroughly screen applicants.. Meeting the applicant, conducting a home visit and contacting references should be standard procedure before a dog is placed in a home. Remember, pit bull type dogs often attract the wrong kinds 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 review PBRC's recommendations to dog shelters and rescue organizations.
