Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Miami Valley Pit Crew rescues Bully breeds from high kill shelters throughout Ohio and surrounding areas. We have also approved out of state adoptions after an extensive application process. Our adoption radius is within 3 hours of Dayton. However, exceptions can be made depending on the circumstances.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Miami Valley Pit Crew (MVPC) is a network of volunteer foster homes dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abused, neglected and misunderstood dogs and puppies. We specialize in Bully breeds: Bull Dog breeds, Pit Bull breeds, Mastiff breeds, and any mixes of the aforementioned.

We pull dogs from Ohio kill shelters and we also educate owners and the public on bully breeds and Breed Specific Legislation (BSL).

The MVPC evaluates each rescue request to determine the dogs re-homing probability. We want to ensure each dog we take in can be rehabilitated into a family member. We work hard locally to educate bully breed owners and speak out against Breed Specific Legislation.

It all starts with an application.

Our dogs are listed until the adoption paperwork is signed. Please submit an application for approval FIRST. We are a 100% foster-based, volunteer rescue so we are not able to respond to every inquiry about a dog (though we try) and we will ALWAYS respond to a request for an application or if one is submitted through our website. Please allow 72 hours for us to respond, and please check your spam/junk mail folder first if you believe we have not responded! Thank you for your understanding!

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fees range from $200-$250. Occasionally this may be more or less depending on the breed of the dog.This fee covers their vetting costs while in foster care. Potential adopters must fill out an application for adoption. After the application is approved, a home visit is required!
All applications are submitted electronically through our website

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.
