Our Mission

Peace For Pits a Chicago area based rescue that focuses on finding loving, caring homes for “bully” breeds in need of help. Many of these dogs come from “high     kill” facilities across Illinois, arriving there as a stray or unfathomably being surrendered by their so called “owners.” Some of these dogs arrive with severe injuries and other health problems due to neglect and or trauma.  Our mission is to save as many of these dogs from euthanasia as possible. We are a 100% volunteer run organization, with every dog living in a wonderful foster home from the day it becomes a part of our rescue until the day they get adopted into an amazing forever home. We do all of this to make sure each dog lives a life of love.

Adoption Policy

Please note that we do not have a facility or shelter where you can view adoptables. We are a foster-based rescue in Chicago-land, which means that each dog is placed with a family in the area. This allows us to better understand each dog's individual personalities.

You must complete an application before you can schedule a meet and greet with each animal. The application can be found here: or if you prefer a Word version, download it here: and email it to Our adoption fee is typically $300 for an adult dog, and $350 for a dog under one year. It includes all vetting and spay/neuter.

The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an application (applicant must be at least 21 years of age). Once your application is received a volunteer will contact you to discuss your application. Two to four references listed will be contacted, along with a call to your veterinarian to make sure your current/former pets are/were up to date
