One of the simplest yet most effective ways of locating a pit bull rescue facility in a particular area in the United States is to use the search feature on the pit bull page on the Rescue Me! website. The search feature on the website is in the form of an interactive map of the U.S., with the number of pit bulls in rescue facilities displayed on each state. Clicking on a state will display the rescued pit bulls, the ID number of the dogs and the rescue facilities that house the dogs.
The Rescue Me! website is a network of rescue facilities located all over the U.S. and in other countries that helps dogs, cats and other animals find good homes. Jeff Gold, who also owns the Rescue Me Animal Rehabilitation Center in Georgia, founded the website in 2003. The website of Pit Bull Rescue Me! is PitBull.RescueMe.org. The service of the website is free, and its sister site, RescueShelter.org, also functions in the same way.
When available, the pictures of the pit bulls in the rescue centers are displayed along with the dogs' other details, such as the dogs' personalities, compatibility with other household members and any health issues.
