We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a Pitbull with people who need to find their Pitbull a new home in the Philadelphia 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
Pit Bulls Rule the City
A Pit Bull is the perfect pal for the urban oasis of Philadelphia. You will surely build a bond with your loyal Pit Bull and always feel protected in this bustling city. You will find plenty of opportunities to get outside with this high-energy breed, and enjoy the many dog-friendly locales the city has to offer.
Philadelphia has plenty of off-leash dog parks in which to watch your energetic, four-legged friend get exercise. The fenced in area at Curtis Dog Park offers an acre of land for dogs to enjoy and benches for you to sit and watch your dog play. The enclosed area is also surrounded by park trails for you to hike with your dog before letting your Pit pal run around on their own.
In addition to dog-friendly parks, there are also some great pet retailers where you can shop for your Pit Bull. For healthy pet products, Bonjour pet boutique encourages you to bring your canine companion along. If you are looking for pet supplies and grooming services, Doggie Style Pets is the spot for you in Philadelphia.
A loving breed like the Pit Bull will flourish in friendly Philly.
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.
Philadelphia Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Philadelphia Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Philadelphia to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
