The Merit Pit Bull Foundation strives for a compassionate world where pit bull type dogs live in responsible homes and where owner education, training and anti-cruelty legislation support all pet owners regardless of breed.

Mission: As an organization, the Merit Pit Bull Foundation will:

§ Facilitate the rescue and permanent placement of pit bull type dogs whom, were abandoned, neglected, abused and/or surrendered within NC.

§ Promote pit bull type dog education to the public, media, lawmakers, and others

§ Promote and teach responsible dog ownership.

§ Support community needs relating to the benefit and welfare of pit bull type dogs.

§ Bring communities together to strengthen the responsible dog owner's rights.

§ Oppose BSL (Breed Specific Legislation)in all forms. We will, also, actively oppose any legislation either currently on the books or in the form of a bill that we feel is unfair and/or impedes on the rights of responsible dog owners.

§ Support and to help enact more legislative penalties against animal cruelty, neglect, abandonment, and irresponsible actions.

§ Work in conjunction with other rescue groups to promote the values of our organization. While we promote our vision for all breeds, we specifically support pit bull and pit bull "type" breeds.

We are a North Carolina foster-based rescue. We have public adoption events several times a month and a number of our adoptables are present at each event.

You can see our events on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheMeritPitBullFoundation/events). Also, approved adopters can set up a "meet and greet" with a specific dog.

Our Adoption Process:

For adoption or fostering information, email us at Apps@mpbf.org or visit our website at www.mpbf.org for complete information and links to contact us.

Our adoption fee is $175.


*All dogs receive the following prior to adoption: Distemper/Parvo Vaccine, Rabies Vaccination, Heartworm Test & Treatment (if needed) Spay/Neuter (no dog will ever be adopted out without being altered), and Microchip.
*Puppies too young for rabies or final boosters will need to be vaccinated post-adoption at the expense of the adopter.
*All adopters must be at least 21 years of age.
*We will only place dogs with indoor ONLY homes.
*A home visit and application are required prior to adoption.
*We do check home owners insurance or with your landlord to ensure pit bull type dogs are accepted in your home or apartment.

IMPORTANT: Many homeowner's insurance companies have breed blacklists or "dangerous dogs" lists which include, but are not limited to, pit bulls, American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Akitas, American Bulldogs, Chows and wolf-hybrids and WILL NOT insure you if they reside in your home or may cancel your insurance if you add a dog of these breeds to your home. If you rent, landlords may also have these same breed restrictions due to their insurance policies. Please check your homeowner's insurance policy or ask your landlord regarding breed discrimination before submitting this application to adopt a pit bull type dog.

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.
