About Us

Orange County Pit Bull Rescue is a Registered 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization

OCPBR is a passionate group of people whose goal it is to protect and take care of Pit Bulls through education, advocacy, rescue and community outreach. OCPBR seeks to improve the perception of Pit Bull type dogs, promote good ownership through encouraging the treatment of dogs as family members, help keep dogs out of the shelter and in homes, and create more fulfilling relationships between Pit Bulls and their families.

In our rescue work, OCPBR rescues Pit Bull type dogs from shelters, abuse, abandonment and other unfortunate situations. Each dog is then placed in a loving foster home where he or she will receive training and be treated as a family member. We are 100% committed to each of our dogs for the long term. Our rescue work doesn't stop when the dog is adopted. We are available as a lifetime resource for adopters and have stepped in to help with medical care, training needs or other things throughout the life of the dog adopted from us.

Through our community outreach program, Home Is Where The Pit Is, we work with community members to keep their beloved canine family members happy, healthy, and in their loving homes by helping with vet bills, supplies, and other needs. We also help out the community through our P.I.T. 101 low-cost training classes for Pit Bull type dogs in the Orange County, CA area.

As a tax exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we rely on the kindness and generosity of animal lovers like you to help us continue and expand the work that we do.

A tremendous thank you from me and the rest of the OCPBR team for making a difference in the lives of the dogs we rescue and for making the world a better, more gentle place for Pit Bull type dogs.
