Adopt A Pit Rescue is a volunteer-run rescue and does not have a physical location. Typically we are unable to take owners surrenders as we have limited resources and focus our efforts on dogs located in high-kill shelters. There are many alternative to rehoming options to consider. Please review the below list of rescources we have compiled.
If you are needing to return a dog adopted from us please click here to send us an e-mail so we can make proper arrangements.

We understand that keeping your pet may no longer be a possibility. In the event that you do decide to re-home your dog, and you did not adopt from us, we recommend PAWS Adoption Center, SICSA, rehome.adoptapet.com, or home-home.org. You could also try these rescues.(We make no endorsement of any rescue or organization on this list).
This is also a fantastic resource if you need help screening potential adopters .
