    I have a brindle,male – 4 months old. He is so adorable but my son is not cooperating with care and I can’t manage alone. Can someone give him a good home. I don’t want to go to the SPCA!

      Hello Sandra,

      We are very sorry to hear your situation. PBP of DE is a small, 100% foster/volunteer based organization that cares for approximately 10-12 pups at a time. Because of the overwhelming # of owner surrender requests and high-kill shelter pleas we receive every day, we are unfortunately not able to take in every pup.

      While every animal deserves a chance, the sad reality is *approximately 9,000 dogs and cats die in shelters in the United States, simply because they have no place to call home. That’s more than 4 million unnecessary deaths a year. A true, present-day tragedy. Your pup is lucky to have an owner that cares, while we make those death row, shelter pups our 1st priority because they have no one to speak for them. Many of them have been abandoned and have never known the love and care of being in a safe home. 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. If you truly feel you need to find your pup a new home, 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.

      If after you have exhausted all options and you still need our help, please email pictures and details about your pup (age, sex, temperament, dog/cat friendly, etc.) to our Owner Surrender Coordinator, Ashley, at ownersurrender@pitbullprideofdelaware.org. Due to the high-volume of requests we receive, there is a waiting list.

      Other no kill rescues in the area are Faithful Friends Animal Society (www.faithfulfriends.us), CompAnimals Pet Rescue (www.companimals.org), Delaware SPCA –Georgetown & Stanton (www.delspca.org), and the Delaware Humane Association (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, Shannon
