About Our Rescue Group:

Guardian Pit Bull Rescue is an organization dedicated to saving the lives of "Pit Bulls". Our goal is to educate people by providing accurate information about this amazing and misunderstood group of breeds and find good homes for these great dogs.

Educate, Advocate, Rescue

Our first priority is to educate the public about the breed and promote responsible pit bull ownership. We strive to advocate for a breed who otherwise has no voice and falls victim to breed specific legislation, discrimination and cruelty due to an undeserved reputation. We work directly with local animal shelters to rescue the breed from euthanasia and aid in rehabilitation for permanent home placement as a beloved family pet. It is our goal to dispel the myth, fight ignorance and allow the public to know this breed for their loyalty, compassion and unconditional love that truly defines them.

Guardian Pit Bull Rescue will continue to fight for the rights of this breed to have a fair chance at life. We will educate, advocate and rescue and will continue in our efforts until they all have homes.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process is designed to place adoptable dogs in the most compatible homes. An adoption questionnaire is used to collect your information and then we proceed with contacting your veterinarian and personal references. We also verify your residence and confirm the allowance of pit bulls with your landlord if you rent your home. Confirmation of proper homeowners/renters insurance is also a requirement.

After verifying the information, a volunteer will contact you to arrange a home visit. During this time we look at the property to determine safety and compatibility, discuss potential concerns (neighbors, fencing, living environment) and meet your current pets (if applicable).

Being approved to adopt does not necessarily mean you are approved for any dog as each dog has its own specific needs. Approval for adoption is based on many things and we do not have a "list" of requirements as we try to assess each potential adopter individually.

Adoption fees are $250 for young and adult dogs, $300 for puppies 6 months and younger. This includes all vaccinations and de-worming, microchip, and spay/neuter.

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.
