It?s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven?t found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (?Am Staffs?) and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. You can find many of these on our links page. We are located in San Diego County, as our many of our foster homes that we work with to give the animals a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent situations. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy and match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in finding the correct dog for the families that contact us by matching the activity level of the dog to the family?s needs and making sure that other pets in the family work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding forever homes for our rescued pets.

My nephew Daniel and his wife Elena recently adopted from this rescue, this is there encounter with The Pits. Unfortunately the puppy we brought home showed aggression towards my 2 yr old. I’ve had pit bulls before and I know what to expect. We planned on having this dog forever and loving her. We couldn’t have known that would have happened. I also have never had any aggression from any of my dogs. We sadly had to return her. We’ve tried to adopt another dog (they have 60 dogs looking for homes) but have been told over and over that the ones we ask about are not a good fit. They don’t know us. We were charged a $240 adoption fee and now are without a dog. We asked to meet other dogs only to be shot down. Now today Daniel received a call saying that the president of the rescue says that not one of their dogs or their organization is good for us because the dogs are too rambunctious! We aren’t expecting to get a dog that sits all day and does nothing. Not one single dog is suitable for our family but it is suitable for them to not return our adoption fee. Does this seem fair to anyone else?? They said if something was wrong with the dog we could get another dog but because I guess something was wrong with my 2 yr old we have to pay an additional $240 if they ever had a “suitable” dog for us. I always recommend adoption and rescue! Pj was the best rescue dog ever but this organization has made me think twice!
