Who We Are
Fur Kid Rescue is a small, private home-based rescue located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We officially started our organized rescue efforts in the spring of 2008, but have been rescuing and working with other rescue groups and local shelters for over 5 years. We take in mainly Pit Bull puppies who have been rescued from gas kill pounds, animal control facilities, backyard breeders, or people who are no longer able to keep their pets. We rarely take in owner’s surrenders unless we find that the owner has a valid reason for abandoning the pet. Fur Kid Rescue will also save other breeds when there is room in one of our breed-experienced foster homes. You may see mastiffs, chihuahuas, or a fabulous mutt who needs a wonderful home! Please visit our main site to read more about our rescue, our adoption process, and to download an adoption application. www.furkidrescue.org
Adopting a friend
In order to adopt a dog from Furkid Rescue, you must fill out an adoption application, ( that you can download at www.furkidrescue.org ) Once your application is approved, the next step is a home check or meet and greet with the dog/dogs of your choice. Once approved, you may be asked to take an approved puppy class as part of the agreement of adoption, and their is a $50 refund after completing the class. You will also be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee, unless otherwise specified. Each dog comes fully vetted, that includes spay and neuter, rabies, distemper, heart worm test, if over 6 monthe of age, and sometimes they will receive a bordetella vaccine. If adopting a Pit Bull, please do research on the breed at www.pbrc.net
Come Visit Us!
We do not have a physical location. We try to give our animals the best foster experience possible, not only for their comfort, but to implement training and make sure they are getting the best care imaginable. Once you are approved for an meet and greet, we are more than willing to bring the dog to your home so that you can spend time with the dog(s) of your choice!
