How Can I Find a Home for My Pit Bull?

If you're asking how can I find a home for my pit bull, you've likely made the decision to give up your pet. Coming to this conclusion is not easy and figuring out the next step can cause anxiety. One of the best ways to put your mind at ease, and ensure your pit bull ends up in the right home is to rehome him yourself. There are other options, but this one lets you choose your pet's new home and make sure he finds the right fit. You might not know where to start, but there are available resources, such as those on the Rehome website to help you every step of the way.

Giving Your Dog a Second Chance at a Forever Home

There are many reasons people choose to give up their pit bulls, including everything from allergies to behavior problems. In many circumstances, these issues can be resolved with additional training, a trip to the vet, or other professional help. If possible, see if there are other steps you can take to keep your dog home with you.

If you find that giving up your dog is the only option, be sure to give him the best chance at happiness in a new home. Here some tips to keep in mind:

  • Don't List Your Dog Free to a Good Home:Instead charge a small rehoming fee of at least $50. This will eliminate people who search through online classifieds looking for pit bulls to use for dog fighting, or other ill intentions.

  • Be Realistic When Surrendering to a Shelter: While most shelters do their best to find homes for every dog they take in, the sad reality is some dogs become permanent residents or have to be put down.
  • Seek Help from Animal Welfare Professionals: Private rescues are unlikely to have room to take your dog in, but some will do courtesy listings to help you find a good home for your pit bull. Pet adoption experts, like those behind Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com, can also help get your pit bull in front of potential adopters, and provide guidance on properly screening adopters.
