Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Our main areas of adoption are the city of Chicago and it's surrounding suburbs....typically within an hour driving radius of Vernon Hills, IL. Placement in other towns/cities/states depends on the availability of the rescue to do a home visit and the adopter to attend training classes with our behaviorist.

About Our Rescue Group:

The mission of Bombshell Bullies is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs identified primarily as American Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers. Our goal is to place these adoptable dogs in their safe and loving forever homes.

We also educate the public by providing information on the prevention of abuse and neglect associated with these bully breeds. In addition, we will help reduce the number of abused, neglected, relinquished and abandoned pit bulls.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process is as follows: First, the applicant must fill out an application. After the application is reviewed by the rescue and the references have been called, dog introduction will be scheduled. If all goes well, a home visit will be scheduled and the dog will be placed. The first few weeks of having the dog is a trial period to make sure the dog is a good fit for you and your family. During the trial period, the rescue provides the necessities for you: crate, food, leash, and collar. If after the trial period you decide you'd like to adopt, adoption papers will be completed and the adoption fee is due at this time. If you decide this dog is not a good fit, the dog comes back to rescue and we can possibly look for a dog that would be a better match. The fee for puppies (6 months and younger) is $350 and the fee for adult dogs is $250. This fee includes the cost of the spay or neuter, complete vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (in dogs over 7 months). Adopters must agree to return to Bombshell Bullies for training.

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.
