We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a Pitbull with people who need to rehome their Pitbull in the Houston 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
The Pit Bull: Playful Pal in Houston
The Pit Bull is a wonderful addition to your life in Houston if you are looking for an affectionate and joyful four-legged friend. With so many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, you and your Pit can stay mobile and share adventures together in this southern city.
If you are looking to grab a bite accompanied by your Pit Bull, Houston has many dog-friendly restaurants. Head to Good Dog with your good dog, for a traditional Texas dish. Choose from a variety of toppings to dress their specialty hot dogs and indulge while enjoying one of their pet-friendly outdoor patios. Your Pit Bull will enjoy the atmosphere and maybe even steal a bite!
Pit Bulls enjoys being outdoors and socializing with humans and other four-legged friends. The Buffalo Bayou Park offers plenty of off-leash activities for you and your peppy Pit to enjoy together. They will love splashing in the fountain, running along the trails, and riding along in a canoe with you. The park is well lit after dark, so you and your pet can play all night long, which is perfect for energetic Pit Bulls.
The playful Pit Bull is a happy companion in Houston.
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.
Houston Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Houston Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Houston to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
