Today, we also got a new pup from DE SPCA. Our founder and her fiance went there and could not leave without taking her. They fell in love with her sweet face and loving personality. She will be available for adoption once we fatten her up! Roxy will never know what it’s like to live in a shelter again!

      Hi Lana,

      We are so sorry to hear of your losses. PBP of DE is a small, 100% foster/volunteer based organization that cares for approximately 8-10 “pit bull type” dogs at a time. Our organization mainly works with high-kill shelters in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. On an average week, we receive 15-20 urgent pleas from high-kill shelters (these dogs are highly adoptable, but sadly are euthanized for space) and 5 to 10 owner surrender requests. We rarely have the resources to take in urgent cases from shelters or owner surrenders. While we would absolutely love to save every dog, the sad reality is we just cannot.

      You may not know this but sadly pit bulls are the most abused and over bred dog in the US. It is estimated that only 1 out of 600 pit bull type dogs ever make it out of a shelter system. While every animal deserves a chance, *approximately 9,000 dogs and cats die in shelters in the United States DAILY, simply because they have no place to call home. That’s more than 3 million unnecessary deaths a year. A true, present-day tragedy. Based on these statistics and because owning a pet is a life-time commitment, we hope you reconsider your request and can make the necessary adjustments to keep yours in a loving home. Your pup is lucky to have someone that cares. PBP of DE strongly recommends Pit Bull Rescue Central for assistance and advice on how to safely find a new home on your own: http://www.pbrc.net/adoption/owners.html. We REALLY need to public to help in these efforts to help save more pups lives.

      Other no kill rescues in the area are Faithful Friends Animal Society ( http://www.faithfulfriends.us ), CompAnimals Pet Rescue ( http://www.companimals.org ), Delaware SPCA –Georgetown & Stanton ( http://www.delspca.org ), and the Delaware Humane Association ( http://www.dehumane.org ). We would also recommend The Pet Project, email info@thepetprojectde.org, and/or review their website at http://www.thepetprojectde.org for additional resources.

      All the Best,
