My story



Shayla is young, silly, and a spaz! I spend so much time laughing at this girl! I doubt this girl is much past her first birthday and the fact that she is heart worm positive just blows my mind! ETPBR will treat her HWs prior to finalizing her adoption. Shayla is spayed and vaccinated We will micro chip her in the next few days. She loves other dogs and people. She needs some manners and we will work on that... Meanwhile Shayla needs a foster home to help us get her thru her heart worm treatment. If that foster home were to be a foster to adopt home...well all the better. If you have room in your heart and home for this clown, please fill out the on-line application at

East TN Pit Bull Rescue adopts out to companion homes only. Adoptions require an application that is verified, a meeting that includes ALL members of the household, a home visit, and a trial period. We do not place our dogs in homes with unaltered pets or homes that have pets but do not have a vet. All of our dogs are placed as inside pets, spayed/neutered, micro chipped, vaccinations current, and HW- or treated within the last 6 months for heart worms by our vet. Adoption fees start at $150 for adults and $200 for pups. If you are interested in offering this pet a responsible and loving home, please fill out the on-line application at

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Each dog is spayed/neutered, micro chipped and vaccinated, HW tested and put on preventative. All medical problems are addressed. Dogs are evaluated for 30 days and not placed available for adoption until they meet certain requirements. Once posted for adoption, there is an application that includes phone interviews and a home visit. The fee is $125 unless we are running a special campaign or a dog has a sponsor. There is an adoption contract that states expectations of new owner and that dog will always come back to rescue if new home falls thru.

Go meet their pets

People can see our pets at regualr adoption events around the area like the Tractor Supply in Oak Ridge, TN where we are on the 4th Saturday of each month - OR - by setting up an appointment to meet a specific dog.

More about this rescue

We are East TN Pit Bull Rescue and we search for loving and responsible forever homes for needy pits in the East TN Area. We will consider aid to a dog out of that area if there is not one to fill the spot from our area. We educate on the truth about the breed and responsible ownership of the breed. We help fight Breed Specific Legislation and educate communities on ways to strengthen their dog laws with BSL language. We hold adoption events as well as educational events aimed at redeeming the reputation of this breed. We do these things because we realize that the future of this breed depends on the public and the media seeing the real Pit Bull.
