Born Again Pit Bull Rescue (BAPBR) strives to improve the lives of Pit Bull Terriers, advocating for these animals who cannot speak for themselves.
"Who we are"
BAPBR is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization located in Portland, Oregon. We are a family of volunteers dedicated to helping local Pit Bull Terriers and their guardians.
We are funded solely, and supported by, the generosity of individuals and corporations in our community. All of our dogs are located in approved foster homes around the Portland/Vancouver metro area. BAPBR does not have a physical building and does not have set hours of operation.
"What we do"
*We partner with crowded animal welfare agencies to create much needed kennel space for incoming dogs by transferring primarily Pit Bull Terriers out of those facilities and into our foster program
*We network with local shelters to raise awareness about the number of Pit Bull Terriers who are in need of homes
*We set our dogs and their new guardians up for success, matching families with the right canine companion to enjoy a shared lifestyle
*We support our adopters for life by providing on-going support, training, and resources
*We combat pet overpopulation and provide financial assistance for spay/neuter services to local pet guardians through our “Snip Your Pit” (SYP) Program
*We strive to eliminate breed discriminatory legislation and unfair prejudices created through misinformation
*We advocate responsible pet guardianship across all dog breeds in the community, recognizing that it is the only way we will attain equality and compassion for all dogs
*We give back to the community by helping other non-profit organizations achieve their goals
*We educate the public about Pit Bull Terriers in order to change current perceptions
*We support local guardians of Pit Bull Terriers by providing a variety of services to help them care for their beloved pets
Please note, we are a strictly volunteer-run organization with no paid staff or employees and we do not have a physical building. This means we have full-time jobs with families and dogs of our own to care for. We always aim to respond in a timely manner, but there may sometimes be delays. Please give us at least 48 hours to respond to your emails and inquires.
Dogs that are "Courtesy Listings" will vary, as they are not BAPBR dogs and sometimes do not have a location restriction.
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.
