Adopting an animal is like adopting a new piece of self. It keeps our human lives grounded. Canines teach us about the simplicities of life and love. They don't know hate or contempt. They know love, food and continuity.
Laugh more, share more.....adopt more.
Our canines come fully vetted, altered, micro-chipped, rabies certificate, home-trained, and socialized. Every adoption includes a crate and a lifetime of training. Adoption fee: $250
The foundation of our program is education. Without education on spay/neuter, breed specific legislation, training, the dog fighting culture and responsible ownership, the epidemic will never end. We average 25 canines at any given time in our facility and 90% of our rescue population is comprised of the American Pit Bull Terrier. We are a no-kill rescue/rehabilitation in that we will never euthanize for space.
A NOTE FROM BILL BELLOTTIE, DBC FOUNDER:
I began my journey through the rescue and rehabilitation world in August of 2003. I was employed by a local animal welfare shelter. I have always been intrigued by the strength and beauty of the APBT. I began researching the breed and soon after, rescue. I began building relationships with established rescue groups nationwide. I approached the director of the shelter I worked at and began introducing the possibility of rescuing APBT's. It was initially met with skepticism. I was eventually able to prove that the APBT was able to be rehabilitated. I was accredited by two well-established APBT rescue groups. I was then able to rescue my first APBT (Amber). So began my journey to enlightenment...
In 2008 my horizons were broadened, both in my spiritual life and rescue world. I met a beautiful, strong-willed woman who would prove to be a motivational force. It was through her love for the Boxer that our rescue would take on a new stance. We would now become a "Bully Breed" rescue and rehabilitation. We would welcome any variation of the Molosser, "Bully Breed" strain of canine.
