About Us

Adopting A Friend

Thank you for checking out our Petfinder pages!!  We hope Petfinder helps you to find your forever friend.

We at ePITome Dog Rescue are dedicated to placing our dogs in great homes.  You can email us at epitomerescue@gmail.com for an application. 

All potential adopters must provide personal references, a vet reference, and be open to a home visit.

Adoption fees vary depending on the dog with the maximum adoption fee being $250.  All ePITome dogs are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and have been wormed before the adoption is finalized.  We do a form of temperament testing on all ePITome dogs.  All our dogs are socialized with people and with other animals while in a foster home.  They are also fed a good quality diet while in our care. 

We are willing to adopt out of state.  However, we may need your assistance with transportation.  If you have any questions, please call 309-331-4456 (this is a personal cell phone so you may have to wait for a call back) for further information.  Thank you!

Who We Are

We are a new, small rescue that works exclusively with bull breeds.  We are incorporated as a non-profit and we have our 501(c)3 Federal tax exemption!  This means your donations are tax exempt. 

We are a foster home-based rescue, so the dogs live in a temporary home while awaiting their forever home.  The dogs are socialized with a variety of people and other animals while in our care.  We work to educate the public about pit bull-type dogs, provide information about low cost spay/neuter programs, and strive to help dogs find loving homes with responsible owners.  We are licensed in the state of Illinois as an Animal Shelter with licensed foster homes.

We adopt out our dogs as INDOOR dogs.  The dogs must be considered a part of the family as it is detrimental to their mental health to live isolated from their humans.  We will not adopt to anyone planning to keep the dog outdoors in a kennel or on a chain.  If you are thinking of adopting a pit bull type dog as a guard dog or for protection, you should understand that pit bull type dogs in general are not any better for protection than any other types of dogs. Most pit bulls are uber friendly and people oriented.
