About Our Rescue Group:

- Who We Are -

The Real Pit Bull, Inc (RPB) is a small, volunteer-driven nonprofit corporation located in central NJ. We focus on education of guardians, the public, shelters, etc, and advocacy work (in the form of fighting BSL, speaking on
behalf of Pit Bulls, educating those who work with Pit Bulls, promoting rescue, and fighting abuse).

RPB is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

- Mission Statement -

The Real Pit Bull, Inc. (RPB) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the American Pit Bull Terrier. Our mission is to serve as a breed advocate; rescue dogs in need; and educate those who impact the lives of Pit Bulls.

- Vision -

RPB envisions a future in which the American Pit Bull Terrier is widely recognized as a companion animal and working dog partner; dog fighting is a thing of the past; dog laws focus on deed not breed; and all American Pit Bull Terriers have loving, responsible homes.

- Why Adopt from RPB? -

RPB has been working with the American Pit Bull Terrier for over 15 years. We strive to place the best breed representatives - spokesdogs, as we like to call them - into educated homes. All our dogs go through extensive evaluations in foster homes prior to placement. We provide full support to our adoptive homes - you will never be left to "fend for yourself" once you've adopted a dog from us.

Come Meet our Pets:

Please contact us to set up a meet-n-greet and get to know our available Pit Bulls.

Our Adoption Process:

*All potential homes must fill out an application.

*Once the application is approved and references have been checked, a home visit will be required.

*A meet-and-greet will be arranged so you may get to know the dog you are interested in adopting.

*An adoption contract must be signed, along with an adoption fee of $175. The adoption is on a trial basis for 2 weeks, and after that time, the adoption will be finalized as per the contract.

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.
