My pit bull rescue, Prada.

As an obsessive breed advocate, I am often contacted when someone would like to adopt a pit bull. I would encourage anyone looking to adopt a pit bull to check a local shelter FIRST before scouring the internet looking for a “breeder”. Over 25% of shelter dogs are purebred! Most rescue dogs have been family pets that need to be re-homed due to owner negligence at no fault of their own. And when I say owner negligence I mean a lack of research, discipline, time, energy and attention on the OWNERS part. Owning a pit bull, or any dog for that matter, comes with huge responsibility on your part. If you can’t commit to a LIFETIME of proper nutrition, exercise and affection for your pet, don’t get one. If you are committed to those things and are ready to adopt the love of your life, I applaud you and wish you and your furever baby a lifetime of love and happiness. Unfortunately due to the disgusting tactics of backyard breeding, illegal dog fighting and the horrible misconception about the pit bull breeds, our shelters are over run with them. And due to the horrible misconceptions about them, they are usually the last to be adopted.Below is a list of local rescue groups in Florida that either specialize in the pit bull breed, or are considered breed friendly.
