Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Our mission is to restore the positive image of the once “nanny dog”, back to its original glory. We have all fallen head over heels, madly in love, with Pit Bull type dogs. Through education and outreach, we hope to inform people about their true nature and restore the breed to its former position of esteem in the hearts and minds of people everywhere. Through our network of dedicated volunteers, it is our goal to place every one of our ambassadors with an educated, responsible owner. Until their forever home is found, all of the dogs in our program reside in qualified foster homes where they receive medical care, training and love.
In order to adopt a puppy, you must own your home. APBR will not adopt
any dog, less than six months of age, to anyone that is renting their home.
Puppies will not be adopted to families with children under the age of three.
Puppies are very popular. If more than one application is received for the same puppy, the adoption counselor will determine the best match for the Ambassador and applicants.
Adoption Fees: All adoption fees go directly to APBR to help pay for medical expenses, spaying/neutering, food and care.
Puppies (under 1 year of age) - $375.00
Dogs (1 year of age and over) - $325.00
APBR will honor a seven day return period for every adoption. The
adoption fee will be collected with the adoption contract.
The dog may be returned to APBR for a full refund during this time,
if for any reason you feel that the placement is not a good match.
If returned within 14 days, you will be refunded half of the adoption
fee. No refund will be issued after this time.
If for any reason you are ever unable to care for you Ambassador,
you must return the dog to APBR.
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.
