Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We help save pets from all over Florida, mostly Hillsborough County. If you are willing to drive the dog to us, we usually take it in. WE DO NOT TAKE IN ANY AGGRESSIVE ANIMALS!!!!

About Our Rescue Group:

We are small, private, rescue group, specializing in the rescue and adoption of pit bulls and the bully breeds. Since we are not yet a 501(3)c rescue, we are not tax exempt at this time so do not receive the benefits as such. But our private rescue is dedicated to rescuing those pit bulls that need our help. We are located in the Riverview, FL. area, but will rescue in Tampa and surrounding areas too. We have been rescuing animals for about 7 years now but never asked for any help, but now we need your help to keep this operation going. The costs of housing, feeding, and medical care (spaying, routine deworming/other vet services) are skyrocketing, and we urgently need help from folks such as yourself. We welcome any kind of donation, or even just spreading the word about our dog rescue. We run this rescue out of our home and we barely receive any funds from the public with assistance in our rescue efforts, most everything comes out of OUR pockets! We strive to fight the bad rap that has spoiled the pit bull's reputation, we like to work alongside other rescues to help find forever loving homes, for our rescued pit bulls. We believe that every dog deserves a chance in life. WE DO NOT TAKE IN ANY AGGRESSIVE ANIMALS!!!!

Come Meet our Pets:

We have no public adoptions as of right now, please e-mail or call for adoptions!! WE DO NOT TAKE IN ANY AGGRESSIVE ANIMALS!!!! Please contact us if interested in sharing your home with a rescue dog. We are in desperate need of donations of blankets, towels, bleach, newspaper, leashes, collars and doggie bowls! We also are in need of rescue volunteers to help foster dogs or help us on doggie wash days!

Our Adoption Process:

We have a strict policy toward animals that are not fixed upon adoption. All puppies under the age of six months, must be spayed or neutered by the time they reach six months of age. All adult dogs will be altered before adoption. All potential adopters must fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire before adoption and an adoption contract, when any dog gets adopted. We do a home visit, to check the potential adopter's home. We also check vet references and personal references, as well as any DNA groups and animal abuse cases! Because we adopt out bully breeds, careful screening is required before any of our animals go home.
We do meet & greets, with the dog, after the potential adopter passes the requirements. We are willing to travel to do home visits, as well. WE DO NOT TAKE IN ANY AGGRESSIVE ANIMALS!!!!

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
