Happy June! This month we are proud to partner with Adopt a Pit Rescue, Inc!
Based in the Miami Valley of Dayton, Ohio, they are the largest pit bull rescue in the area and work to save, rehabilitate and re-home dogs from local kill shelters.
Adopt a Pit Rescue is a 501(c)3 that was founded in 2013 after realizing the need for pit bull and bully breed rescues. The number of bully breeds within the shelter system are highly disproportionate in relation to other breeds that find themselves within shelters, and Adopt a Pit Rescue is committed to helping those dogs find their forever homes.
While their focus is primarily on pit bulls and bully breeds, today they pull dogs of all backgrounds, from high-kill shelters who have been deemed “unadoptable” due to a variety of reasons including injuries, illnesses or simply because of what they look like. The dogs they pull from local shelters are quite literally on death row. As a fully volunteer and foster-based rescue, they rely heavily on the support of their communities to give these misunderstood dogs a fighting chance.
Many of their dogs have physical scars to remind us of their pasts, but many more have scars that cannot be seen. Through no fault of their own, they have been discarded like yesterday’s trash. Adopt a Pit Rescue was born out of a desire to make sure this doesn’t happen to another dog and they work to save as many of them as they can. To date they have placed 2,600 dogs in their forever homes. They currently have roughly 120 available, adoptable dogs in over 80 foster homes.
We are proud to partner with them and will be donating 30% of our monthly profits to assist in their continued mission to save as many lives as possible. Please shop with us all month long!
