About Our Rescue Group:

Golden Rose Pit bull Rescue has been rescuing American Pit bull Terriers (and the occasional other breeds) for 10 years. Our wish is that every pit bull have a loving and nurturing life-time home. We are in Constant support of Spaying and Neutering all Pets, Especially pit bulls. We also try our hardest to Educate the Public about the TRUTH when it comes to this very misunderstood breed. Please Remember "Punish the Deed, not the Breed".

We do not rely on any government funding help. We simply rely on Donations from other Pit bull and dog lovers and money out of our own Paychecks. People ask us all the time why we are willing to go without new clothes, a nice dinner and a movie, or gas in our vehicle just to joy ride just to take good care of a Pit bull. The answer is Simple (at least to us), they DESERVE IT! But, with this being said, sometimes the funding is not there to have one of the dogs spayed/neutered before being adopted; We then request that the adopter pre-pays the surgery by his or herself at the Veterinarian of your choice. Mandatory: They must be fixed within 21 days of leaving our rescue. You will be refunded 50% of the surgery cost when we are shown a valid "Spay/Neuter" certificate from a Licensed Vet.

We also offer a referral service to help owners place pit bulls they can no longer keep if you wish to not surrender your pet at this time.

Our Adoption Process:

When we rescue a pit bull or any other breed we make it a lifelong commitment that it will never have to suffer again. We promise to find the very best new family, one who shares our philosophy about dogs that they are a cherished member of the family. The first step in the adoption process. We also require a home visit to confirm the pup the adopter is interested in will have the home the adopter says she or he will have.

When you Surrender:
First let me apologize to you that you are going through this time of having to re home your best friend. We understand that you and your dog have grown an attachment to each other and this is not an easy or fun Process. We will do everything in our power to make you comfortable with handing over your best friend to us. We can only promise Love, Attention, tons of treats, Positive reinforcement training, plenty of toys, no kennels, no tie outs, and nothing but they home he or she will deserve!!!!! We also have no problem taking pictures for previous owners while in our care :)

We take Owner Surrendered Pets only.
When surrendering your dog please make sure that you are as honest as possible about the dog and his or her personality.

We do Require the following things at the Time of Surrender:
1)A 40-50lb Bag of Purina Pro Plan Adult or Puppy chow (depending on if surrendering a puppy/dog.

2) His or her Veterinarian Records

3) His/Her crate - And it will leave with the dog when adopted also.

4) Any toys or something with your scent or his/her "Favorite persons" scent to remind him/her of home while making the transition.

5) A $25.00 Donation Surrender fee is required for dogs and Puppies. If you are surrendering a litter of puppies with their mother add $7 for each puppy to the $25.00 - This helps us to make sure your dog has everything he or she needs while in our care. Afterall, We are saving their life :)

WE DO NOT EUTHANIZE ANY ANIMALS RESCUED BY US!

We specialize in Temperment rehabilitation and Obedience. We make sure any pitbull adopted listens and acts appropriately in their new home before being adopted. This helps dogs stay in their forever homes instead of being surrendered again due to behavior problems.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
