We are a foster home based rescue. We do not have a shelter or kennels. All of our dogs live in foster homes as part of a family until they find their forever home. We supply all of the food, vetting, crates, and other supplies for all of our foster dogs. Our foster homes supply the love. We rely on donations and adoption fees to cover our costs and to be able to continue to save these wonderful dogs! We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donations are tax-deductible.

Saving the most misunderstood dogs...

Adopt A Pit.
Not the Bull.
Book Free Walk!
Adopt a Pit Rescue, Inc. is the largest Pit Bull rescue in the Miami Valley. We save, rehabilitate, & rehome dogs from local kill shelters. Some of our dogs have physical scars from their past, but many more have scars that we cannot see. They all need our help, through no fault of their own. 

Founded in 2013 to rescue and rehabilitate Pit Bulls & other "bully breeds", we have since adopted out over 2,600 dogs, and currently have around 120 adoptable dogs in over 80 foster homes. The majority of our dogs come from high kill shelters, where they are quite literally on death row. We focus on dogs who are deemed "unadoptable" at the shelters due to injuries, illness, because they are scared, or simply because of their breed.
