Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We will happily adopt to homes anywhere in the midwest provided we are able to arrange the home check to be done by a qualified person in your area.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a 501(c)3, non-profit, bull breeds rescue. Our mission is to take dogs out of bad living situations and place them in loving homes with responsible guardians. We provide education to the public regarding the truth about the bull breeds, rather than the media hype. We advocate for successful guardianship of these breeds; which includes spaying/neutering, obedience training, appropriate management/leadership, and a proper home atmosphere in which the dog can flourish. We also help local community members find low cost solutions for spay/neuter and other needs.

We are a foster home-based rescue. This is a big bonus for the dogs and for potential adopters! The dogs get to live in a home setting while waiting for their forever family, and we are able to provide potential adopters with accurate information regarding the dog's personality and behavior. We strive to place our dogs in homes that are the best fit for them and their new family members. All the dogs that come into our rescue program have been evaluated and/or temperament tested.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are foster home-based so let us know if you would like to meet one of the dogs. We advertise events on our Facebook page, just search for ePITome Dog Rescue and "like" us.

Our Adoption Process:

We ask that potential adopters request, complete, and submit an adoption application. We will check references that are given on the application and do a home check to look for issues that adopters might not have thought of when looking to adopt a bull breed. If the adopter has other dogs, the dogs will need to do a meet and greet :). If all goes well, you will have a new family member! Our adoption fees are based on the age of the dog. 8 weeks to 6 months - $250, 6 months to 1 year - $200, over 1 year - $150. Our rescue provides the dog's neuter/spay, microchipping, parvo/distemper vaccinations, deworming, current flea treatment, heartworm test (when applicable), and any other medical needs to get the dog ready for adoption.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
