CPR: Saving Lives, One Paw at a Time
 
Mission
California Pit bull Rescue (CPR) is organized for the purpose of rescuing at risk "pit bull" type dogs and facilitating social change to abolish the abuse, over breeding and mis-education surrounding the breed. CPR will achieve these goals through a SF Bay Area fostering network, fundraising programs, educational initiatives and financial/physical support for needy guardians of pit bull type dogs.
Established in August 2012, CPR is a 501(C)3 all-volunteer nonprofit rescue organization with headquarters in Richmond, CA.  100% of our proceeds go toward our mission goals including awareness initiatives and providing food, supplies, housing, training and medical care for the dogs we take into our rescue program.  We strive to house our dogs in foster homes where they can decompress and learn how to be loved and secure family members. They remain under CPR's wing until they find the most appropriate permanent guardian with whom they can happily and peacefully live out their lives.
