We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a Pitbull with people who need to find their Pitbull a new home in the Brooklyn area.
What We Do
Direct rescue & adoption of pets, from one good home to another. Rehoming a Pitbull keeps them out of shelters.
“Program innovations, like the match-making website developed by Get Your Pet, can be life savers for pets, owners and shelters.”Matt Bershadker ASPCA President & CEO
Your Pitbull Meets Brooklyn Life
The American Pitbull Terrier is an athletic, charming, short-haired dog with an eye for affection. Famous for being good nanny dogs on the American frontier, the Pitbull became a well-rounded work and family dog due to its impressive, adaptable nature and ability to learn. Today, the Pitbull’s nature lends itself well to Brooklyn life.
Pitbull's loving nature makes them a great companion for a Brooklyn family. Pitbulls are friendly, highly affectionate, and very protective of their loved ones. Incredibly intelligent, the Pitbull can be easily trained if you’re patient with them. The Pitbull's interesting history and breed attributes make it a popular choice for adoption.
While your Pitbull can make themselves at home comfortably in a Brooklyn apartment, you'll still want to go out and explore the many dog-friendly options the borough has to offer you and your companion. First and foremost, Brooklyn offers plenty of places to get your pup a snack. The Lucky Dog Bar is a dog-friendly tavern in Williamsburg where you can get a drink, and your Pitbull can get some treats.
If you prefer to skip the cocktails, take a trip on over to Herbert Von King Park Dog Run. Here, your Pitbull can walk freely without a leash and play with other Brooklyn dogs in a large, fenced dog park. Sometimes you can even catch live musicians performing at the stage.
Once your Pitbull is tuckered out from running, they can make some new Pittie friends at the NYC Pitbull Group meetup, where New York Pitbull owners meet at dog-friendly parks and places to socialize their dogs and help change the public perception of Pitbulls. They even do work to help Pitbull owners find a Pit-friendly apartment.
Brooklyn, New York welcomes all Pitbulls, so get out and adopt one today!
The best way to save a beloved Pitbull, or any pet, is to keep them out of the shelter system. Rehoming a dog or cat is a better kind of pet adoption, in every way.
Brooklyn Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Brooklyn Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Brooklyn to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
