We are a Florida Pit Bull and Dog Rescue Organization!
Pit Bull Happenings Rescue is a Florida Non-Profit Organization. 100% of our funding is from the general public and our local communities. We receive NO governmental, grant, and/or corporate funding. Any donation received may be tax deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Important: Our new intakes are closed! We are focusing on our current dogs available for adoption and fundraising/increasing the Rescue's income so that we may move into a facility next year. Don't want to see us close intakes? Community involvement, volunteers, fosters, supporters, and donors are vital for our continued rescue operations.

(* Dog Foster Home [In-House] Network! * Click here to see our adoptable dogs! *)
* We rescue all dogs regardless of breed. We do not discriminate against breed of dog *
We will rescue any dog in need, granted we have space and resources.
* Dog adoptions throughout the State of Florida! (except Dade County!) *
Important:We are not rescuing dogs outside the State of Florida, due to the high volume of dogs in our home state [Florida] needing rescued! We rescue dogs in our own backyard!
We are a foster home based rescue (Foster homes located throughout Florida except Dade County.) meaning our rescued dogs live in our homes among our families, as part of our families! Our space is very limited for new intakes and the need for good foster homes is very much welcomed and needed...
Our rescued dogs available for adoption, can be found on our website by clicking here!
Our adoptable rescued dogs can also be found on our rescue account at RescueMe.org, PetFinder.com, AdoptaPet.com, and many other dog adoption websites! In addition, you can meet some of our rescued dogs in the greater Tampa Bay area by coming to any of our upcoming dog adoption events!
Visual Breed Identification Disclaimer: Visual breed identification has proven to be inaccurate and unreliable! In addition, canine DNA testing is relatively new and none to our knowledge test for the American Pit Bull Terrier (the true Pit Bull) making DNA testing unreliable and inaccurate, by default. The fact is, unless you know the history, lineage/parentage, etc. we shouldn't be labeling the dogs and passing inaccurate info to the adopters, general public, and others. The dogs we rescue from shelters come from an unknown background and most of our owner surrenders we take into our rescue organization, the owners are unable to prove the history of their dogs. Further more, several different breeds share similar characteristics as the American Pit Bull Terrier. Therefore, we are unable to guarantee the predominant and precise breed for our dogs! We will call our dogs the American Pit Bull Terrier when we know the lineage/history. We judge our dogs on their own individual behavior and personality!
