The Silver Lining for Pit Bulls is a small group of volunteers who are dedicated to finding permanent, loving homes for American Staffordshire Terriers (“AmStaffs”) and American Pit Bull Terriers (“Pit Bulls”). We deal with shelters around the country who need our help. We do deal with all breeds but our main focus is on helping to rescue, rehabilitate (when needed) and find good, loving homes for Pit Bulls.
We do not have a shelter or kennel facility. We are scattered across the US and Canada. Our dogs live in foster homes with foster families while waiting for a family to call their own. We welcome visits between adopters and dogs but do be aware that they may be located in any number of states. We do receive numerous emails every day while working full-time jobs, so please be patient.
There are many expenses incurred in caring for these dogs (pull fees, vaccinations, spay/neuter, vetting, dog food, crates, collars, leashes, toys). Any donations received are used to cover expenses incurred while caring for and rehoming the dogs. We have no paid staff. As a small private rescue, we do not receive any government funding. We rely on adoption fees, fundraisers, and donations to cover our expenses. It is not uncommon for a dog’s adoption fee to be less than the expenses incurred while caring for the dog.
As mentioned we do work with all breeds, and would be glad to help you find your new family member, even if you are not looking for a Pit Bull or bully type breed. Please contact us and let us know how we can help you find your new family member.
