Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Pit Bulls for Life takes pride in knowing that all dogs adopted have absolutely NO human aggression and have little to no animal aggression. All dogs and potential adopters are carefully screened to ensure that dogs are placed in their forever home.
The foundation is completely volunteer-based and relies heavily on foster homes and donations. As we do not have a shelter for our rescued pit bulls we are limited to the number of dogs we are able to take in at any one time. If you are interested in fostering, volunteering or donating please contact us.

Our adoption protocol is very stringent; designed to be a lengthy process to ensure that all new dogs placed in the home are going to be in the same home for the lifetime of the newly adopted family member. The process starts by the potential adopter filling out an adoption questionnaire. Once the foundation has received the questionnaire, a member of Pit Bulls for
Life will contact you to discuss both your questionnaire and the dog you are interested in adopting. Dogs are adopted based on suitability of the dog and the family, not on a first come, first serve basis. If we feel this dog is not a suitable adoption we will offer suggestions
regarding other dogs we have in the program. After it is determined which dog the adopters would like to meet, the foster home will contact you to discuss more about their foster dog and set up a time to do a meet and greet at their home. If the meet and greet goes well at the foster home and you are still interested, then a home check and a meet and greet at your home will
then be set up. All members of the home must be present for at least one of these meetings. After the final meet and greet, we ask that you take a minimum of 24 hours before calling us to complete the adoption. This gives all parties involved time to evaluate and confirm that this is the best suited home for your family as well as the dog.
Pit Bulls for Life takes pride in helping newly adopted dogs and their families with the transition into their forever homes. We enjoy hearing from the adoptive families with updates on their new family member. If the need arises Pit Bulls for Life is always there for questions or concerns that the home may have.
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.
