We believe that pit bull adoption should be a fun, but educational experience. Our dedicated staff and compassionate team of volunteer K9 Foster Custodians work collaboratively to save pit bulls and bully breed dogs from Texas shelters. Upon intake, all MASBR dogs receive quality veterinary care to address their individual health and physical needs. Then, they are matched with a volunteer K9 Foster Custodian. Foster families begin the process of helping the dogs heal from past traumas and prepare for future adoption.
Each dog available for adoption has its emotional, mental, physical, and health needs evaluated, documented, and fulfilled. For some dogs, only basic care is required and they are ready for adoption sooner; while other pit bulls may require a collective of basic obedience, training courses, behavior modification, socialization, and medication therapy to find balance.
Make A Stand Bully Rescue accepts pit bulls and bully breeds from all situations, with all backgrounds, and works hard to ensure their safe placement in adoptive homes.
House pictures and veterinary records (if applicable) need to be sent to email@example.com.
In the subject line of the email, please put: LAST NAME – DOG NAME – HOME CHECK or VET CHECK
Please be sure to include detailed images of both the interior and exterior of your home, including detailed images of the yard and fence and anywhere the dog will regularly frequent.
Only those applicants who have other dogs or cats in the home need to provide veterinary records. All living pets in the home need to be spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, and current on prevention. If there is a medical reason that excludes your pet from one or more of our requirements, please let us know and we will work with you if we can.
Upon receiving all required materials, your caseworker will reach out to you via email. Please be sure to check your spam/junk as well.
If you do not receive an email within 72 hours, please send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If needed, a caseworker will schedule a phone call with you to discuss your application, the dog you’re interested in and any special requirements or necessary information regarding the dog.
All applicants will be informed whether or not they have been approved to adopt from our program. Please understand this decision can come in many forms. Check our FAQ section to understand all outcomes.
If approved, please expect a group chat (either via text message or Facebook message) with your caseworker, our leadership, and the foster family.
We work with your schedule on setting up a meet and greet with the foster dog(s) you’re interested in meeting. This meeting will happen exclusively between you and the foster family, unless the meeting is for a more challenging dog in our program, at which point, one of our executive leadership team members will be present.
Please keep all communication on this group thread until after the adoption.
On adoption day, you will be provided:
Before you depart, the foster family will ask to take a family photo that we will post on our social media channels.
You will receive a PayPal invoice for $250 that must be paid in full prior to leaving with your new dog. If you are not comfortable paying via card on PayPal, you may bring exact cash or a check made out to Make A Stand Bully Rescue.
If you are not local (additional fees may apply) or will be sending someone on your behalf, your case worker will work with your directly.
