We are a Pit Bull Rescue Organization in Florida!
(* 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 Miami-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 the Greater Tampa Bay Area and South Florida) meaning our rescued dogs live in our homes among our families, as part of our families! For this reason, our space is very limited for new intakes and the need for good foster homes is very much needed...

Our rescued dogs available for adoption, can be found on our website by clicking here!
Our adoptable dogs can also be found on our rescue account at,,, 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!
*** We do not have an animal shelter or facility! *** as of yet...We are working towards finding a shelter/facility...

Attention: Foster Homes & Volunteers Needed! As a growing Pit Bull Rescue... our Volunteers and Foster Homes are vital and are the backbone of our Organization! They are the ones who are guiding our Rescue operations... they are our enablers for saving lives. The more dedicated people who become involved... the more lives we can save!

"Pit Bull Fair Housing Project" by PBHR & Friends
We are working on a Statewide (Florida) Database that will be publicly available... We NEED Volunteers to help with this Project! Please Click here to find out how YOU can help with this Project!

The Pit Bull Fair Housing Project

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. 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, the owners are unable to prove their history. 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 hence, our Dogs are American Rescue 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!
