Do you have room for just one?
Being a foster home can make the difference of life or death for many dogs in shelters.
It also makes the difference in allowing a shelter dog/boarded dog to get inisde a home to learn manners, get used to a house and people, even other dogs, cats, kids, and grown ups.
Many of our volunteers choose to be a foster because its the way we are able to rescue the dogs we do.
You can donate your time, your love and your home instead of $$
WE NEED YOU! WE are in need of 10+ new foster homes in order to pull dogs from boarding and get them ready for adoption.

This poor girl in Covington needs our help - she being kept on a 4 foot chain, but until we have a foster home placement - we can not go and get her.
Can you help?
Welcome to Virginia Paws for Pits, the Shenandoah Valley's FIRST "Bully Breed" Rescue! We are a home based rescue that relies on foster homes to give these dogs the second chance they deserve. Please do not shop, adopt! If you can not adopt, then become a foster, if you can not foster volunteer, if you can not volunteer, then you could sponsor a dog and help us in our mission.
For available dogs, puppies, and applications hold your mouse over the Adoptable dogs/Applications header - a list of pages will appear.
Please take a look at the Courtsey Listings - as these dogs are often in danger of being PTS for lack of space at shelters that ask for our help.

We have been contacted by a family who have inherited these dogs and can not keep them. They are all being kept short term at the home of the deceased previous owner. They were inside pets and now are outside on chains because that is the only way they can care for them.
They will all end up in a shelter, and the local shelter does not adopt out pitties so they will all end up dead!!
Please fill out foster applications, or email us today if you can help.
This is Arby, Duchess, Glacier, Redman and Sweetness.
Remmie - Possible Dutch Shepard - In Boarding needs foster/adopter ASAP!!
Remmie was pulled from our local shelter to avoid euthanasia when they filled up. She is young and FULL of herself. She likes to be held like a baby and loves attention. We think she is a german sheppard pitty mix and she is around 18 months old. She needs a foster ASAP! Remmie does very well with female dogs, not so much with males. She loves people and is great with kids of all ages. Can you provide Remmie a forever home or foster home? She hopes so!
