About Our Rescue Group:

Pet-a-Bulls, Inc. is New Mexico’s all volunteer based “Bully” breed ADOPTION group. We carefully select dogs from City and County shelters across the State, ensure that all medical needs and vaccinations are in place and that each and every one of our fur~friends have the basic behavior training to automatically exhibit the skills required to be deemed “Ready-Made” family pets!

Pet-A-Bulls, Inc. was formed exclusively to address the overwhelming overpopulation and homeless pet problems in the state of New Mexico. While our primary focus is placed on American Bullys, American Staffordshire Terriers, American Bulldogs, Old English Bulldogs, American Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, all the various Mastiffs and other “Bully” type breeds, virtually all canine breeds are always considered as space permits. Keep an eye on our “Adoptable Dogs” page as you never know what you’ll find ~ we’ve had everything from a Dogo Argentino to a Bouvier des Flandres, to Dachshunds, Chihuahuas, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Border Collies and Labs to absolutely adorable “pure D genuine, certified, New Mexico specials” (undetermined mixed breeds with lovely personalities).

Pet-A-Bulls places our full focus on carefully selecting our dogs from high kill shelters in New Mexico, after they have been properly screened and evaluated, in a full on effort to prevent unnecessary euthanasia. All intakes are carefully evaluated and then placed into in-home foster with people appropriately matched for their care. We are NOT able to accept dogs directly from the public under our current structure.

Pet-A-Bulls is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation and ALL donations are tax deductible.

Our Adoption Process:

We have an adoption application that all adopters are asked to complete. Our adoption fees vary depending on whether the dog is a mix, adult and on specific breed. Please email or call us about any dogs you are interested in and we will happily discuss the process and the dog you are interested in and whether its a fit for your lifestyle and family. All dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots amd heartworm tested if over 6 months old. We also provide free training classes to help your adopted pet be the best pet ever. Bully breeds often have very few options once they are at a shelter and have one of the highest euthansia rates of all breeds so please consider opening your home as an adopter or foster to this wonderful, often misunderstood breed!

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.
