A few months ago, Bella was found abandoned and starved and tied to a pole with a bag of dog food next to her. Despite all this, the first thing she did when we found her was to come over and give us a great big hug. She is the happiest most trusting and sweetest companion we've ever seen. She absolutely loves people and steals as much attention affection as she can get. If you let her, she will crawl right into your lap, and turn over for kisses and belly rubs. She is very enthusiastic and still acts like a puppy. She loves going on walks, and when she sees a car door open, she'll be the first one in. She knows how to sit, stay, come, go, down, leave it, and fetch (and she's pretty quick to learn too!) She loves her ball, and loves to run around outside, and can play fetch for hours and hours. She also loves to sit in the sun for hours sun-basking, but she definitely prefers to be hanging out indoors with her people. She lives with three other doggies in her current foster home, so she does enjoy playing with her furry friends with supervision. She can be a bit grumpy about her food, so we'd recommend feeding her separately, and not letting small children interrupt her dinners.
She is current on all vaccinations, spayed, microchipped, and on monthly flea preventatives. We are guessing she is around 4 years old, but she acts so much like a puppy, we keep thinking she's younger! :) If you think you'd be interested in meeting her, please send an email to email@example.com or call/text: (626) 709-6864
Rescue Group Info...
Orange County Pit Bull Rescue is an all volunteer organization working to build a community of responsible dog owners. We accept pit bulls from a variety of unfortunate circumstances and provide them with a second chance. Since we do not have a boarding facility, all OCPBR dogs are taken into responsible, loving foster homes. The dogs stay with their foster families until their own forever home is found. We are also working on developing free and low-cost resources for spay/neuter, microchipping, vaccinations, and training. Contact us today if you’d like to be part of the solution!
Mission Statement: Orange County Pit Bull Rescue will work to create a safe, supportive community for Pit Bulls by:
1. Rescuing dogs that meet the standard temperament for pit bulls and placing them in foster care. Providing proper socialization, medical care and training to ensure successful placement in adoptive homes.
2. Working with our community to keep Pit Bulls from entering shelters. Providing support to owners to help with any challenges faced owning this breed. Offering necessary assistance such as free food and supplies, referrals and advice, and financial help when available.
3. Developing free and low-cost spay and neuter programs as well as vaccination and microchipping clinics for low-income pit bull owners.
4. Building a community of support for Pit Bull Owners by providing activities and opportunities for proper socialization; advising on positive ways to train your Pit Bull and help with behavioral problems; and education on responsible ownership and bite prevention.
5. Working to change perceptions of pit bulls by educating the public on the history and true temperament of the breed; adopting out breed ambassadors to responsible owners and offering assistance to owners who would like their dogs to become certified Canine Good Citizens and/or therapy dogs.
Orange County Pit Bull Rescue is entirely staffed by our dedicated volunteers. We have a network of foster homes in Orange County and surrounding areas.
How you can help: We are in dire need of foster homes, volunteers, and donations. Donations can be mailed to our address or sent via our Paypal account using our email address. We also need donations of dog food, dog beds, crates, toys, and medical care.

All of our wonderful adoptable Pit Bulls are screened for temperament, and placed in foster homes prior to adoption. Applicants are required to fill out an adoption application and recieve a subsequent home visit with the adoptable dog. Our adoption fee is $250 ($300 for dogs less than a year) and includes a spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, deworming, microchip and collar. We provide owner support for the lifetime of the animal.
