My story

Hello! My name is Remi. I am a 2 yo, neutered male, pit mix. I weigh approximately 53 pounds. I was sprung from the shelter and came to my foster home May 6, 2020. I am still adjusting, but I have made some very good gains in just a little over a week. I have become adjusted to my crate and am doing a good job of coming out of it nicely. I am doing a much better job of getting in and out of the car and riding in it. I've got the stairs and the different floor surfaces in the house--no problems there. I love the outdoors and likely have little experience with indoors, but I am learning, and learning fast! The shelter reported no issues between me and other dogs, and I did well with the meet and greet with the resident male in my foster home. I am heart worm positive. The next step for me would be a foster-to-adopt (FTA) home with a nice, completely fenced in, 6-foot fenced back yard. I am a very good boy in the back yard. I do not dig or try to jump the fence, but I really do like it outdoors. I am a fairly quiet dog. I may bark some at first, but I settle down quickly. My foster mom's neighbors have even commented about what a nice dog I am. I will be starting HW treatment the end of May, 2020. The ideal FTA home will work cooperatively with my current foster mom to assure that I am transitioned at an appropriate point in my treatment.

Please note that we do not have a facility or shelter where you can view adoptables. We are a foster-based rescue in Chicago-land, which means that each dog is placed with a family in the area. This allows us to better understand each dog's individual personalities.

You must complete an application before you can schedule a meet and greet with each animal. The application can be found here: or if you prefer a Word version, download it here: and email it to Our adoption fee is typically $350 for an adult dog, and $400 for a dog under one year. It includes all vetting and spay/neuter.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The first step in the adoption process is fill out an application at our website, Once we receive your application, a volunteer will contact you to discuss your application. Two to four references listed on the application will be checked, along with a check with your veterinarian to make sure your current/former pets are up to date on all vaccinations. A background check and home visit will also be performed. Once all that is complete, we will arrange meet and greets with dogs that may be a good fit for your family. If a perfect match is found, an adoption contract will need to be signed, along with an adoption fee. Fees range from $250-$350, with a $50 discount/rebate upon completion of a Peace for Pits approved obedience course.

More about this rescue

Peace for Pits is a Chicago area based rescue that focuses on finding loving, caring homes for “bully” breeds in need of help. Many of these dogs come from facilities across the midwest, arriving there as a stray or unfathomably being surrendered by their so called “owners.” Some of these dogs arrive with severe injuries and other health problems due to neglect and or trauma. Our mission is to save as many of these dogs from euthanasia as possible. We are a 100% volunteer run organization, with every dog living in a wonderful foster home from the day it becomes a part of our rescue until the day they get adopted into an amazing forever home. All of our dogs get neutered or spayed, are given all state mandated vaccinations, are microchipped, and if needed, receive other major veterinary care such as surgery or treatments for diseases and infections. When a dog becomes a member of Peace for Pits, it becomes a member for life. We are here for continued support for each adopted dog. We stay in frequent contact with each and every adopter to assure they have all the knowledge and tools to care for their four legged family member. We do all of this to make sure each dog lives a life of PEACE.
