Miami Valley Pit Crew

Dayton, OH

Our Mission


To cultivate an understanding of the American Pit Bull Terrier through positive education and example and change the misinformed minds of society one dog at a time!

Nonprofit Overview

The Miami Valley Pit Crew (MVPC) rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a network of volunteer foster homes dedicated to rescue and rehabilitation of abused, neglected, and misunderstood dogs and puppies. While we are an all breed rescue, we specialize in "bully breeds" and other strong working breeds: Bulldogs, Pit Bulls, Mastiffs, German Shepherds and any mixes of the aforementioned. We pull dogs from the country's overcrowded shelters. We also educate owners and the public on bully breeds and Breed Specific Legislation (BSL). We specialize in dogs, but respect all living creatures and encourage others to do the same by education.

The MVPC evaluates each potential rescue request to determine the dogs re-homing probability. Our goal is to adopt out family dogs and ambassadors of their breed.

Adoption Policy

We require an application submitted through our website to begin the process. After the application is reviewed and vet checks complete, if approved, a phone interview by our adoption coordinator will determine best fit and answer any questions! A non-refundable $100 hold fee is required to secure your chosen dog and is applied to the full adoption fee (ranges from $200-$400) at the time of the home visit. If the home visit goes well, the adoption is completed at that time and our MVP is your new best friend!
1) We do not adopt to individuals under 25
2) We will check your landlord if you rent for breed and weight restrictions
3) A fence is required for most of our dogs, but exceptions for leash walking may be considered for some. We do NOT approve the use of electric fences for our dogs.
4) Please ensure you have read all of the dog's specific requirements before applying. We may suggest a better fit for your family dynamics, as we know these dogs better than anyone and want the dog AND our amazing families to succeed.
