Our Adoptable Pet List

Featured Dogs

This tiny cutie is our one and only Munkey. Munkey is either a Staffordshire Bull Terrier or a pint sized Pit Bull Terrier. Munkey is on the very small side at only 32 lbs., which suits her perfectly though since being a lap dog is her mission. Munkey is one of the most affectionate dogs we've seen. She even loves to be carried around and cradled like a baby. She'll do anything to be loved! Munkey has been waiting over a year for a family of her own and just desperately wants to fit in. Munkey's New Year's resolution is to finally find a home. Will you help her?Visit Munkey

This big cutie is Wilbur. He's a soft, squishy baby! Wilbur is such a lover. He loves to spend all his time with his people and likes to snuggle and cuddle more than anything else. He's an easy going fellow that would fit in, in homes and he can't wait to have one of his own. Visit Wilbur

Who We Are

Colorado Pit Bull Rescue is a network of foster homes located throughout Colorado. We do not have a shelter.

All of our dogs are in foster homes or local boarding facilities. This gives us a chance to ensure all of our dogs get the vet care they need including vaccinations and spay/neuter. This also gives us a chance to really get to know each dog and get them cratetrained, housetrained, and help them with basic obedience before they are placed in their permanent homes.

In addition to all the basic care these dogs get, the most important aspect of being in a foster home is the ongoing socialization our dogs get. They live in real homes with lots of different people, with kids, other dogs, and sometimes even cats or other animals.

While we would love for every dog to stay in their original home this just isn't the reality for so many. With the wonderful foster homes we have we are able to give our dogs a safe, stressfree, and loving environment until the right home comes along.

Adopting a friend

Our adoption process is very intensive and is so for a very good reason. Pit Bull type dogs, including American Pit Bull Terriers, American Bull Dogs, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and Bull Terriers are some of the most difficult dogs to place due to the recent bad press they've been given by the media who are always looking for an exciting news clip and many local politicians looking to cash in on an easy scape goat for political gain.

Due to the bad rap these dogs have gotten we must be very diligent in our placements. We must also ensure that anyone adopting through us has done their breed research and is choosing the right dog for their home environment.

While we strongly believe Pit Bulls make wonderful family dogs and that their amazing loyalty, and sweet, outgoing personalities make them one of the most rewarding of doggie companions, we realize these dogs are not for everyone.

These are working dogs with a high energy drive, a strong intellect, and a determination that other breeds rarely show. They need a lot of attention and family time to be happy as well as a lot of exercise and outside time. And most importantly they live for a strong unbreakable bond with their human family.

Because of all of this be prepared to complete an application, come for a personal in home visit with our foster dogs, do a supervised meet with any other animals, be available for a home check prior to placement, sign an adoption contract, and send us tons of updates and pictures, and ready to welcome us back for checkups occasionally :)

As we are a group of foster homes our dogs are located all over Colorado, though mostly along the Front Range north of Denver.

We always need financial support to continue to help homeless pit bulls in Colorado. If you would like to support our mission please consider making a donation. You can even sponsor a particular dog and let us know what items you would like for that dog to receive.

We also regularly need supplies for our dogs to assist in their care while in our adoption program. Please check our wish list to see if you may have items you are no longer using that could be contributed to our rescue.
