Welcome to PittieLove Rescue!

PittieLove Rescue Inc. is a 501(c) (3) non profit organization based in MA. We are an all-volunteer, foster home-based rescue devoted exclusively to the care, understanding and adoption of the American Pit Bull Terrier. As one of the most abused and misunderstood breeds of all time PittieLove’s number one goal is for our rescued dogs to never suffer from neglect or abuse again, carefully placing them into loving homes where they will be Ambassadors for the breed.



If you’re not ready to make a long-term commitment but would still like to make a difference in an animal’s life, you may consider becoming a foster parent. Fostering a dog is a tremendously rewarding experience and truly saves the life of a dog who would likely not be saved otherwise.

Mercedes and Beemer just came into our rescue on Friday from Lawrence Animal Control. They were found Thursday evening in an abandoned house in Lawrence during a drug raid. The pups became ill yesterday and both are now at the vet.

Judy & Howie L. – Framingham, MA

“We had our son’s pit bull living with us for 6 years. That is how we first became in love with this ‘breed”. We then heard from Noreen at PLR that there was a sweet, 3-year old, female in a MA shelter who she felt would be a perfect fit for our family. We went to see Ebony and it was love at first sight!!! That was it!!! We adopted her shortly thereafter and the rest is history!!! She has been a wonderful addition to our family! I have never seen my husband SO in love with a pet before!!!! She’s lovable, intelligent and wonderful with our grandchildren and anyone who comes to visit! Our lives would not be complete without our sweet girl!!”
