Adoption Policies

Ensuring Forever Homes

PittieLove Rescue, Inc. works diligently to carefully place all of our dogs into loving homes where they will experience the affection and kindness that has been so sorely absent from their lives. All adoption policies are not meant to be discriminatory in nature and are only in place to reinforce that our dogs will truly have found their forever homes.

One of the biggest contributors to the plight of the pit bull is a lack of commitment by owners. Pit bulls live about 12-14 years. Much can change in your life in that amount of time, so it is important to be sure you are considering your new dog as a member of the family who will be with you through thick and thin.

Our Adoption Donation includes spay/neuter, microchip, testing for heartworm and tick-borne illnesses, and vaccinations. All of our pit bulls will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm prevention prior to adoption.

  • Dog Placement

All of our pit bulls will be placed as only dogs or with a compatible dog of the opposite sex.

  • Age

All adopters must be at least 21 years of age.

  • Home Ownership

All adopters must own their home.

  • Home Visit

A home visit is required as part of our application process.

  • References

Personal and veterinary references are required.

  • Puppies

Puppies younger than 6 months old must register with a positive reward-based training center that has received PLR approval. The first experiences a puppy has are crucial. We want them to have the best opportunity for success possible.

Please note that exceptions to some adoption policies may be made on a case-by-case basis.
