California Pit bull Rescue (CPR) / Oakland, California

Mission statement: California Pit bull Rescue (CPR) is organized for the purpose of rescuing at risk “pit bull” type dogs and facilitating social change to abolish the abuse, over-breeding, and mis-education surrounding the breed. CPR will achieve these goals through a statewide fostering network, fundraising programs, educational initiatives and financial/physical support for needy guardians of pit bull type dogs.

About the organization: Established in August 2012, CPR is a 501(c)3 non-profit rescue organization with headquarters in Oakland, California. 100% of our profits go toward our mission goals including awareness initiatives and providing food, supplies, housing, training and medical care for the dogs we take into our rescue program. We strive to house our dogs in foster homes throughout the San Francisco Bay area, where they can decompress and learn how to be loved and secure family members. They remain under CPR’s wing until they find the most appropriate permanent guardian with whom they can happily and peacefully live out their lives. CPR will also be establishing a sanctuary for pit bull type dogs, which will ease local municipal shelter burdens and provide community support for responsible dog guardianship, as well as a forever home for those deemed “unadoptable.”

Admission Policy: Whenever foster homes become available, we usually rescue directly from city shelters throughout California.
