The Buster Foundation - Belleville Pet Shelter

The Buster Foundation

The Buster Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and re-homing pit bulls and bully breed mixes. Through decades of cruelty, unethical breeding and irresponsible ownership, a once beloved family dog has now found itself the victim of discrimination and abuse, and a source of misdirected public fear. We believe that every dog is an individual, deserving of a loving home, proper care, and a fair shake, regardless of breed. We hope our efforts lead to a better educated and more compassionate public. The Buster Foundation is an ALL VOLUNTEER organization, and does not operate a shelter. All Buster dogs are cared for in foster homes by volunteers who commit their homes and free time to rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption efforts. We make every effort to have a volunteer respond to inquiries and questions within 72 hours. Please be patient and do try again to reach us if you have not received a response within this time frame.

Adoption Process

After we receive your completed application, we will then do the following: Review your application to make sure the information provided is complete and appropriate given the needs of our dogs; Contact your references; Contact you with any follow-up questions or concerns we may have; Schedule a time for you (and your family members and pets) to meet the dog(s); If the meeting goes well, we will then schedule a home visit with the dog at your house; Before finalizing any adoption, proof of a paid obedience class must be provided. After reviewing your application and meeting with you, we may suggest that a dog of a different age, sex, or temperament will be better suited to your living situation and household. For example, we often recommend that homes that already have one dog adopt a new dog of the opposite sex in order to reduce the likelihood of conflict between the two. Similarly, we often recommend that households with multiple young children let us recommend the best dog for them, in order to ensure positive interactions between the new dog and the younger members of the family. This is particularly important with active, energetic breeds that require the kind of exercise and training that pit bulls do.
