It's The Pits


We are a large breed rescue specializing in the Bully breeds. We formed in 2006 and are still going strong 15 years later! We are 100% foster based and are primarily based out of San Diego. On average we have 50-100 adoptable dogs but COVID has drastically changed our rescue operations and sizing. We hope to go back to a more normal operating scale this year. We are one of the only pittie recues that will take serious medical cases and large families in our area. For example, if we are contacted about a pregnant mom and there’s a dad in the picture, we will also take dad as well!

$5 from each Metal Rescue sold this month goes to support It’s The Pits.

It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog.

We are located in San Diego county, as are all of our foster homes. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family.

We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets.
