Pepper for Pitties
Our mission is to advocate for and help with the adoption of pit bulls in Rhode Island. To help rid the social stigma surrounding these amazing dogs.
Why Adopt a Pit Bull?
Over 1 million dogs are euthanized every year.
40% of euthanizations in America are Pit Bulls.
Pit bulls are less likely to get adopted due to Pit Bull prejudice.
Over breeding has led to an increase of Pit Bulls in shelters.
Meet our pups
If you don't know this already, we are obsessed with our dogs. Meet Sawyer (left) and Kylo (right), in our opinion, the best dogs around. We adopted both Sawyer and Kylo from Heart of RI, in Cranston and couldn't be happier with our decision. Our lifelong goal is to have a farm full of rescue dogs and peppers. What can we say? We like to dream big!
How you can help
There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer with a local shelter. You can also go to the ASPCA to find more ways to volunteer.
Every shelter is always looking for donations, whether it's for transportation of dogs to their shelter or for medical bills or just for maintenance. Every little bit helps.
There are plenty of places to find amazing dogs here RI. Check out the links below in "Local RI Resources" to find the perfect pup for you!
Rosie is a petite, young pup - about 2-3 years old - at the Exeter Animal Shelter. She loves playing fetch, going on walks and snuggles.
This handsome guy is always ready for action whether it be a run, fetch, or a scenic hike. He is currently going for four mile runs in his foster home and loving his track star status. You can find him at Save One Soul Animal Rescue.
This girl is a mush! This sweet girl comes to us via a shelter in SC. Kali is only about a year old and is a healthy 45 pounds! She has done great in foster. She is also fully vetted. *Breeds are best guess*. You can find her at New England Humane Society.
