Luv-a-Bull Pit Bull Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 that began in 1999. We are primarily volunteer based rescue organization dedicated to re-homing unwanted Pit Bulls. Our goal is to educate the public about this loving breed that has often been the victim of misinformation, discrimination, abuse and even neglect.
Luv-a-Bull foster dogs live either at our main kennel facility or in a network of foster homes. Our dogs come from a variety of situations. The majority of our dogs are rescued from high kill-shelters. We are committed to socializing our dogs and exposing them to real life situations. A day in a life of our dogs consist of: daily hikes on wooded trails, play groups with other dogs, a room with a view, premium food, daily visitors of all ages, mentally stimulating games, medical care, and a whole lot of love.
Every dog LAB accepts is given a complete health examination, spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, and given all vaccinations. We only choose dogs that have never shown human aggression. We spend a lot of time with the dogs, getting to know each one, their personalities, and unique qualities.
Because historically, Pit Bulls were originally bred to be fighting and hunting dogs, they can sometimes be aggressive with other dogs of the same sex. Some Pit Bulls also have a strong “prey drive” and some should not live with cats or other small animals.
Living with a dog is a big responsibility. We educate all potential adoptive families about their choice of breed, their general breed traits and strengths and weaknesses. Pit Bulls are eager to please, great companion dogs and very trainable. Many Pit Bulls live harmoniously with other dogs and other animal species.
