Bull Terrier Rescue of Virginia

We are a non-profit, charitable organization committed to rescuing abandoned, homeless, or unwanted Bull Terriers by bringing them together with new adoptive families. We do everything possible to place rescued Bull Terriers in permanent forever homes, and we support careful and selective breeding to ensure the health and well being of purebred Bull Terriers.

We also support new Bull Terrier owners and educate the public on the breed.


We are not a shelter, there is no central location to come and see any dogs. Through the generosity of our Fosters Homes, each dog is welcomed into their home where they are given the love and affection they deserve while waiting for their Forever Homes. We are always in need of qualified Fosters which will allow us to rescue more Bull Terriers.


We were incorporated and granted 501(c)(3) status in 2010. All donations are tax deductible.


If you know of a Bull Terrier in need of rescue, please contact the BTRVA Rescue Chair at BTRVArescue@gmail.com. BTRVA rescues dogs up and down the East Coast to include   Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and more!





There are many amazing dogs looking for their forever home. Don't waste any time in finding your new best-friend!

Volunteering is more than just fostering. It's becoming a part of a family that works together to give Bull Terrier's that need a home a chance at a new life and a new family. It's about making a difference - one dog at a time.
