My story

WAIVED ADOPTION FEE! Rhino is an 11 Year Old, 87lb Senior dog that we pulled from the @nycacc. One year later, Rhino is still in a foster home - without a forever home in sight.  Rhino FAQs: - WAIVED adoption fee, Cuddly, quiet and chill (thinks he’s a lap dog), Low maintenance, Loves meeting people + dogs, Enjoys swimming, short walks around the neighborhoods, receiving praise and affection, Is housebroken, Received a dental, neutered, up to date on vaccines. We know Rhino’s age and size may not appeal to many people who are looking to adopt a dog, but surely there is someone special out there just waiting to spend his golden years with him.

Why adoption is a great option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn 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 Pit Bull Terrier/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Brooklyn paves the way for another one to be saved.
