There is an Indian legend which says when a human dies there is a bridge they must cross to enter into heaven. At the head of that bridge waits every animal that human encountered during their lifetime. The animals, based upon what they know of this person, decide which human may cross the bridge… and which are turned away.
Our mission is to rescue, care for, and rehome neglected, abused and or homeless dogs, focusing mainly on the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT). We are a small, non-profit 501(c)(3), foster-based rescue located in Raleigh, NC. We feel that Pit Bulls have gotten a horrible reputation through no fault of their own, so we decided to do something to help.
The APBT is a smart, loyal breed that has become feared and disliked due to negative stereotypes, irresponsible ownership and all-around ignorance. We believe all dogs deserve a happy life, and Pit Bulls are no exception. Like any dog, the Pit Bull requires training and socialization. For this reason, we do ask that potential adopters fill out an application and be prepared to undergo home visits. We want to ensure that a dog gets placed with an individual that is right for them. Anyone who truly wants to adopt a dog will find this well worth their time and effort.
Each of our dogs is brought up to date on all vaccines and vet care, house trained and taught basic commands. All dogs will be spayed or neutered before being placed in an adoptive home. There is also a required adoption donation of $200.00 to partially reimburse our rescue for vet costs. While some people may feel that this amount is too high, it costs much more than that to fully vaccinate, spay/neuter, medicate, and feed a dog for the time he/she may be in our rescue.
