Pit Bull Happenings Rescue's Pit Bull - Dog Adoption Center!

We are a Florida Pit Bull Rescue rescuing Florida Pit Bull - Dogs!

We only adopt dogs out within the State of Florida! (except Dade County)

Important: There is a $25 non-refundable fee. This fee goes to purchasing a criminal/background check. While the check is being performed, we'll process the application which includes a phone interview. Once the application is processed we'll schedule a home inspection and in-person interview. The adoption process can take up to 7 days to complete but typically you're contacted within a couple of days, rescue can be sporadic and tireless work... on top of us being an all-volunteer organization with our own families and work lives. Please be patient with us! While we are going through this process, you are strongly urged to think about adding another (or a) dog to your family. This is a huge lifetime decision that deserves careful consideration. Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our awesome dogs!

Disclaimer: Despite all dogs being labeled, we cannot guarantee the precise breed. Refer to our "Breed Identification Disclaimer" below.

Visual Breed Identification Disclaimer:
Visual breed identification has proven to be inaccurate and unreliable!
In addition, canine DNA testing is relatively new and none to our knowledge test for the American Pit Bull Terrier (the true Pit Bull) making DNA testing unreliable and inaccurate. The fact is, unless you know the history, lineage/parentage, etc. we shouldn't be labeling the dogs and passing inaccurate info to the adopters, general public, and others. The dogs we rescue from shelters come from an unknown background and most of our owner surrenders we take into our Rescue, the owners are unable to prove their history. Further more, several different breeds share similar characteristics as the American Pit Bull Terrier. Therefore, we are unable to guarantee the predominant and precise breed for our dogs! We will call our Dogs the American Pit Bull Terrier when we know the lineage/history. We judge our Dogs on their own individual behavior and personality!
