City Pitties is a civic minded resource for pit bulls, pit bull mixes and other “bully breeds” in New York City, their “pet parents”, those looking to adopt from local shelters and rescues and those who just want to help. Our dogs don’t vote or pay taxes, but we do!

We advocate for the American Pit Bull Terrier, pit bull mixes and other “bully breeds” through education, fighting Breed Specific Legislation (“BSL”) and breed bans and encouraging responsible ownership and dog friendly community improvements. City Pitties provides a variety of services for pet parents, animal rescue groups, and animal wellness providers. We partner with approximately 20 animal rescue groups and shelters in the tri-state area (NY/NJ/CT), are affiliated with other rescue groups and service providers in South Florida, and primarily serve Brooklyn, New York, but also Queens, Staten Island, the Bronx, Manhattan and parts of Long Island and Westchester County in New York, and the tri-county area of Dade, Broward and Palm Beach in Florida. We will work with you to rehome or better your relationship with your dog, but we will not take ownership of your pet.

City Pitties is NOT a shelter or rescue group. We do NOT intake dogs.
