About Our Rescue Group:

Ring Dog Rescue is a 501c3 pit bull rescue organization based out of Richmond, Virginia. Our focus is on the rescue, rehabilitation and long term placement of pit bull-type dogs in our region, as well as on the continued and ongoing education of the general public on the true character of these dogs and their role in altering the current societal perception. In 2009, Ring Dog Rescue placed 87 dogs in loving, permanent homes across Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Washington D.C., New Jersey, Pennsylvania and South Carolina, representing a 26% increase in dogs adopted from 2008. Our dogs come from various sources, including local kill-shelters, as strays or even as removals from neglectful situations. Our dogs are provided full and complete medical care, including spay and neuter, vaccines, microchips and remediation of any ailments the dog may suffer, placed in foster homes, taught to be a family dog and then placed in an adoptive home, after a thorough screening process.

Our Adoption Process:

Steps to adopt

1. Fill out an Adoption Application
2. Phone interview
3. Reference Checks
4. Meet and greet with the dog you are interested in (and any dogs you may have)
5. Home inspection
6. 1 week trial run (in home)
7. Finalize adoption (contract, collection of adoption fee and transfer of medical records)

Our adoption is fee $150.00, due at the end of your week trial, and includes spay or neuter, rabies (if of age), vaccinations, worming, microchip and any other medical required for the health of the particular animal.

The entire process can take 1-3 weeks to process, so please be patient and understand if you live outside of the Greater Richmond Area, the process may take longer. Our goal is to place the right bully in the right home.

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.
