Being Advocates for Rescued K-9's means we do not discriminate on breed and believe all breeds of dogs deserve a second chance at a great new home. The stereotypes and negative press that has been attached to the "Pit Bulls" can make it extra difficult for these loyal and often misunderstood dogs to find homes. But knowledge is power! Here is a fun game to test if you know your "Pit Bull"
Our fosters and volunteers love to find cool places to bring our own "forever" dogs and our foster dogs. Check out these links:
