Welcome to Bully Paws Pit Bull Patriots

Bully Paws Pit Bull Patriots is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue. Working with shelters in the VA/MD/DC area, we place homeless pit bull type dogs in foster homes. There, they are cared for by dedicated volunteers until they are adopted.

Help by fostering!

We strive to keep our expenses and overhead as low as possible, enabling us to direct our money towards the care of our foster dogs. Our organization is 100% volunteer driven. Bully Paws' volunteers support all aspects of our mission including administrative work, animal care, fundraising, outreach, and event support.
