Our mission is to rescue dogs at risk, advocate for the breed, and educate the public about the true nature of a pit bull that is properly raised in a loving home.
The Pit Bull Pen is 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer group located in southeastern Washington state. The pets in our program come from many different sources: owner surrender, high kill shelters, animal shelters who request our help, found injured, sick, abandoned and abused dogs and cats.
Once accepted into our program they are placed in loving foster homes or remain at the rescue site. Our animals are given medical care, good food on a regular basis, lots of love, attention, and training.
Most dogs are ready for new homes fairly quickly. Dogs not ready for adoption are allowed to decompress, get medical treatment, receive training, and socialize in a timeline appropriate for their needs. Once dogs are ready, they are placed into loving homes.
