We adopt out dogs, we do not take owner surrenders or strays. We only take dogs from partnering shelters when we have available space.
Annabelle's Second Chance is a small private foster home based rescue located in Central Virginia to Central and Eastern North Carolina. We officially began our organized rescue efforts in the Summer of 1999 even though we have been unofficially rescuing homeless pets for our entire lives and been involved with the breed since the early 90s. Our rescue began with a quest to rescue and adopt out a wonderful pit bull named Annabelle who has become our mascot and namesake. Annabelle's Second Chance received its 501(c) 3 June 2005.
Come Meet our Pets:
All of our dogs are available online at www.ascpbr.org. We do not attend adoption events. All of our dogs are privately fostered. Applications must be submitted prior to meeting a dog, this for the safety and privacy of our foster homes and dogs. Foster homes are always needed.
Our Adoption Process:
Adoption fees are $160.00. All pit bull dogs will be micro-chipped and altered . Our average vet expenses per dog for worming, rabies shots, other vaccines, Heart worm testing (and treatment if positive) including spaying/neutering, office visits and any potential health complications (parvo, kennel cough, mange, allergy testing) are around $400.00 and can be even higher. Our adoption fees only cover a small portion of these expenses. Adoption application and contract required. Applicants must be over the age of 21
