BAPBR is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization, based in Portland, Oregon, dedicated to creating a better future for pit bull type dogs (and some small dogs, too–we call them “Not-a-Bulls”. Everything we do for dogs in need is done through the generous donations of individuals. We at Born Again Pit Bull Rescue (BAPBR) are always working to help unburden crowded animal shelters by transferring pit bull type dogs and small dogs, too (we enter them into our Not-a-Bulls program), into our foster home network. Our foster families provide a soft-landing, consistency and some basic manners, along with lots of love–not to mention a way more fun temporary home than a kennel at a shelter! We are always recruiting to expand our foster home team—please consider opening your home to become an animal angel!


CoH is an all breed dog rescue.  We are all volunteers and our dogs are kept in foster homes.

We believe there is someone out there waiting for one of our dogs to save them, they just may not know it yet!

R.A.I.N. Rescuing Animals In Need

We started out as a small group of animal lovers and shelter volunteers who couldn’t “click off” email pleas any longer . We just started saying YES to dogs in need. Followed by amazing cats in need. We are not breed specific, but do love our Pits and Pit mixes who are always the last in the shelters and first in our hearts. We have connected with great trainers, super adopters and people within the rescue community to build a strong network to help these animals. But we are “DOING IT” and “LOVING IT”. We rescue cats and dogs from high-euthanasia shelters and give them a second chance at life. We also focus on the homeless animals in desperate need of assistance within our local communities. All of our animals are given health exams, spayed and neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped prior to adoption. We also include professional training assistance as part of our adoption package for most dogs.
