What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue?
I was found wandering the streets of Stockton. I wasn’t in very good condition. I had recently had puppies. I guess they didn’t want me anymore once they got the puppies. Then, the nice people from NorCal Bully Breed Rescue saved me from the shelter and here I am! I know what it is like to be loved now! I would love a forever family to call my very own! I promise that you won’t be sorry if you pick me!

NorCal Bully Breed Rescue is a foster based rescue with foster homes spread all throughout the Sacramento area. We usually require our adopters to be within a 50 to 100 mile radius of us, depending on the dog, and depending on the home. This is because we need to do a yard check to guarantee that the potential adopter's yard is secure, and also have them be close enough should any behavioral issues arise, and the assistance of our trainer is needed. We are, however, willing to adopt out of our area, including the Bay Area, Tahoe, and even further. We've even adopted out of state on very special occasions. We try our best to match our dogs to the perfect homes, and match them based on their personalities, not their looks. Adoptions are not done on a "first come, first serve" basis, rather in the order of what homes are the right match for that particular dog. Our adoption fees are based on the dog and range from $200-$350. In the case of senior dogs (6+ years), fees will be waived to the right home. This includes spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, and deworming (if necessary). If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you can visit our website at and fill out an adoption application (from your home computer). Please allow at least 24 to 48 hours for a reply.

Turtle's adoption fee is $200. She is up to date on her vaccinations, heartworm tested and on preventive, spayed, & microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Turtle, a Lincoln American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Lincoln, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Lincoln.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lincoln already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lincoln breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lincoln paves the way for another one to be saved.
