RENTERS who do NOT breed discriminate
– For pet owners, the inability to find pet friendly housing is one of the leading causes of animal abandonment. You can modify your search for just pet friendly housing on this website by checking the “Pet Policy” option from the “Advanced” tab at the top of the page.
is a free map-based search for home & apartment rentals, with animal friendly filters.
Unfortunately some on this list have changed their policies and now breed discriminate
(i.e. Admirals Club n.k.a. Hunters Run, Galman Group (Buckingham Palace, Castle Brook), & Arbor Pointe Apartments) but there are some who do not have restrictions. As soon as we get an updated list we will repost.

WELLNESS/LOW COST VET CLINICS & Pet Food Banks
Organizations that may assist with non-emergency veterinary bills:
We use dog behaviorist, Christine Nolan, founder of Your Dog and You, http://www.yourdogandyou.com/
and Carl Zive http://calmcanines.com/
they are both absolutely amazing! We have a volunteer who is a retired trainer who offers training ideas online via a FB page called PB Training Discussions. We also have a volunteer that works for K9 Camp and a few volunteers that recommend professional training through Misguided Mutts.
Pit Bull Pride of Delaware’s mission is simply to better the lives of as many homeless pit bull type dogs as possible. We are, however, a small 100% foster and volunteer based rescue, caring for less then 8 dogs at a time. It is estimated that only 1 out of 600 pit bull type dogs ever make it out of a shelter system. Therefore our primary focus is to work with high-kill shelters in our area, to give these innocent dogs, sitting on death row, a chance. On an average week, we receive 20-25 urgent pleas from high-kill shelters (these dogs are highly adoptable, but sadly are euthanized for space). Millions of dogs are euthanized each year in shelter systems across the United States and never had a person to care for them. For these reasons, we hope you understand it is not our policy to accept owner surrenders from the public.
We would encourage you to please give your dog every chance possible to remain a part of your family. Resources are available for training/behavioral issues, spay/neuter, low-cost veterinary clinics, pet food banks, insurance and housing referrals. If you need assistance finding any of these resources, please review our website or let us know. Remember, you are your dog’s best protector.
If after exhausting all resources and you still are unable to keep your dog, we strongly recommend Pit Bull Rescue Central for assistance and advice on how to safely re-home your dog: http://www.pbrc.net/adoption/owners.html.
If your inquiry does not fit any of the above categories, please email our, President and Founder, Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PIT PACK PROGRAM! Temporarily on hold
PBP is 100% foster based, and in most cases our dogs only receive daily interaction with their foster family. We believe it is very important to keep our dogs well socialized, and have created the Pit Pack Program to allow our volunteers the opportunity to interact with our adoptable dogs. Pit Pals are teamed up with a foster dog to help provide exercise and socialization. As a Pit Pal, you have the opportunity to take the foster dog out for walks, rides, different (leashed) social settings, play dates with other fosters or your friendly pups, etc. This is dependent on each individual dog’s needs and your experience level.
If you are interested in being a “Pit Pal” in the “Pit Pack” Program, please contact our Pit Pack Coordinator, at email@example.com.
