The Merit Pit Bull Foundation - Greensboro Pet Shelter

We are a foundation currently assisting Bully-type dogs and their people in North Carolina. We pull our dogs from county shelters as well as accept owner surrenders. We work to educate and spread the good word about our beloved breed through community outreach, owner assistance and beyond.

Adoption Process

Once we receive your application, we begin processing it as quickly as possible. We will check the following: Must be 21 years of age or older; Homeowner's insurance company and/or landlord to confirm that they do not have any breed restrictions that would prevent a pit bull type dog from living with you; Veterinarian to confirm all animals in your home are up-to-date on vaccinations and annual visits; Two personal references who are NOT related to you or to your family members. Final steps include a phone interview, a home visit, and a meet and greet with the dog(s) that may best suit your family. Not sure who to choose? Let our applications team guide you to the perfect fit. We often receive multiple applications for the same dog. We do not match on a "first come, first serve" basis, but rather strive to choose the adopter who is the best match for each particular pup. Our goal is a successful, happy, and permanent adoption that meets the needs of the dog and the adopter. Please note that our applications team is composed exclusively of volunteers who process applications in their free time. The team does their best to respond to each email, inquiry, and application in a timely manner. During this process, we encourage you to monitor your email account and your phone to ensure we are able to reach you without delay. Additionally, it will make the process move more quickly if you ensure your landlord (if applicable), veterinarian, and personal references are prepared for our calls. The longer it takes to reach them (or get a return call/email from them), the longer the application process will take. If at any point in the process you are concerned because you feel you haven’t been contacted in a timely manner, feel free to check in and let us know that you are still interested! We welcome out of state adoptions however, we do not ship dogs. All out of state adopters (if approved) must pick up their newly adopted pup.
