Adopt A Pit.
Not the Bull.

Rescue Statistics

We typically have 70-90 dogs listed on our Adopt-A-Pet profile available for adoption, but we generally have 120+ dogs in over 60 foster homes throughout Ohio. They either aren't ready to be adopted because they are too young, have medical issues that need to be resolved first, are awaiting spay/neuter, or have behavioral issues that need work before we are ready to release them to an adoptive home. We work with a fantastic team of veterinarians, behaviorists, trainers, groomers, and volunteers to make sure that our dogs are ready for adoption, and go to the right family. We make sure we check with potential adopters' vets and landlords to make sure there are no issues prior to adoption. We perform a home visit for each and every dog adopted out. 

Since our founding in 2013, we have adopted out over 1700 dogs. Below you will find the breakdown.

Did you know...

We frequently pull pregnant females, or females who have just given birth from the shelter. A typical litter is usually 5 to 8 puppies, but it's not unusual for there to be more. The biggest non-medical, non-food cost for puppies who don't need to be bottle fed? Puppy pads. Just like with babies and diapers, they're not cheap, and we typically need them until the puppies are house trained at around 10-12 weeks. We can ALWAYS use puppy pads, and old towels and blankets.
