MissionCalifornia Pit bull Rescue (CPR) is organized for the purpose of rescuing at risk "pit bull" type dogs and facilitating social change to abolish the abuse, over breeding and mis-education surrounding the breed. CPR will achieve these goals through a statewide fostering network, fundraising programs, educational initiatives and financial/physical support for needy guardians of pit bull type dogs. CPR will also be establishing a sanctuary for pit bull type dogs, which will ease local municipal

Adoption Policy

If you are interested in adopting a dog through California Pit bull Rescue (CPR) we have a few standard steps you will need to take:

We ask that you fill out our Adoption Questionnaire, to help determine what type of dog(s) would best suit you.

?We will arrange for a "meet and greet" with your dog(s) of choice -- everyone, human or not, who will be living with the dog or interacting with him/her regularly is required to meet in person.

?Home checks are mandatory -- this is when we will get a first glimpse of how your prospective family member fits in and adjusts in your home.

If all goes well, we start your trial adoption period with our adoption contract and donation (which includes microchipping, vaccination and spay/neuter) of $300.

Depending on the situation, you will be required to check in at intervals to provide updates on the dog's transition.

In most cases we will conduct a minimum of one follow-up visit to check on the dog's condition and welfare post adoption.

You will also be required to provide proof of training with an approved trainer within one month of placement, before the adoption can be finalized. We also strongly recommend that you continue lifelong training with your dog.

All CPR dogs have our full support post-adoption for questions, advice and feedback. Should you ever find yourself in the position of having to give up your dog, we require that you contact us first. We also strongly urge you to contact us before issues arise, so we can provide the resources you need to successfully keep your dog with you for life.
