Interested in adopting a dog from Orange County Pit Bull Rescue, here's what you can expect:

We have an application process that will first help determine a good match for your family. All of our dogs are in foster care, which helps us really get to know the personality of each dog and their personal needs. After we receive your application, we will ask and answer any questions that may come up, and set up a time for you to meet your potential new best friend!

The next step in the process is a home visit with the adoptable dog. Don’t worry it’s not an inspection, we just want to make sure our dogs go to responsible and safe homes. The best part of this is that it helps everyone to see the dog in your own environment, and have an extra chance to bond with them to see if they feel like a good match for your family. We will take the time with you to make sure to answer any questions and make sure you feel comfortable about adopting.


If you have completely fallen in love with the dog and we all see a great match, then we will schedule a convenient time to bring your new friend home permanently! You will be provided with all of their medical records, adoption contract and literature for your new friend. We provide training sessions for our foster families and are a resource to adopters to help with the transition


period and making the dog a successful permanent member of your family. We recommend each adoptive family keep up the training.  We have trusted, experienced trainers we can recommend in Orange County.

Dogs adopted from OCPBR are part of our extended family and community. We will be a lifelong resource for your dog, and always maintain a supportive presence. We strive to make the best possible matches to ensure a healthy and happy life for all.


Our adoption fees are considered a donation and put directly back into the rescue to continue to fund our lifesaving efforts. The dogs live in foster care funded by the rescue anywhere from one to nine months, or even a year depending on the dog. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations and fed a quality diet. The cost of our foster care program per dog, usually ranges from $200-500, our adoption fees are as followed-$350 for adults (1 year and older) and $400 for puppies (12 months and under). 

We appreciate your interest in adopting a dog. You are truly saving a life. Not only are you providing a loving forever home for a homeless Pit Bull, but you are also opening up a place for a new rescue! We are all volunteers and make a conscious effort to process each adoption efficiently and with good communication.  Please be patient as we receive many emails and applications daily.

We have many great adoptable dogs ranging from puppies to seniors, purebred Pits and mixes! Check our OCPBR’s adoptables on our website here. We also have listings at and
