As the largest pit bull rescue in Indiana, we are only limited by the number of dogs we can save by the number of foster homes available. We receive more requests for help than we could ever honor and hope that our work brings us to a day when there are less pit bulls that are deemed expendable. So where do we get our dogs from? The majority of the dogs that we rescue come from Indiana shelters. Occasionally with partner with another rescue to help them move a dog by pulling that dog into our rescue. Typically, the rescue that is requesting assistance is not a pit bull focused group and therefore, the pit bull in their rescue is not receiving media attention.

In 2015 we started offering owners re-homing assistance for pit bulls that they are no longer able to keep. These are Hoosiers that reach out to us to surrender their pet, but upon further discussion, decide to work with us to help their pet find the best new home possible. We welcome these individuals into our Casa del Toro fostering network and the pups into the rescue, pending reference checks (both personal and veterinary) and a behavioral assessment of the dog. No dog is pulled into the rescue without being seen and evaluated by a Casa del Toro volunteer.

Please note that because we are an all volunteer organization we are limited in the amount of resources we can extend, including our ability to travel to distant areas in the state of Indiana. We do not typically adopt outside of the state of Indiana, and applicants that are generally more than an hour outside of the greater Indianapolis area may be referred to another rescue or shelter closer to their proximity. We review each application carefully, and we require personal references as well as a home visit prior to adoption.
