Who We Help

BAPBR works with many animal welfare organizations in Oregon, Washington, and California. We transfer dogs in need out of the kennel environment and place them into our foster care “Pit Stop” Program. We also network with our social media and shelter friends to increase a dog’s chances of finding the perfect Forever Home.

California Dogs Program

While we focus on rescuing Pit Bull Terriers in our local community, we also recognize that Pit Bull Terriers in southern California are being euthanized at much higher rates than in Oregon, so we transfer dogs from California whenever possible.

The dogs we transfer from California come with donations raised by local volunteers and activists in that area, who work with a particular dog. Donations and pledges help us provide spay/neuter services, microchipping, food, and other essentials to our new fosters. Shelter Transportation Animal Rescue Team (S.T.A.R.T.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that helps us transport dogs from California to Oregon.
