Mayday Pit Bull Rescue & Advocacy is devoted to rescuing, rehabilitating and securing placement for pit bull and pit bull mixes into responsible, permanent and loving homes.

We strive to educate the public about the pit bull breed in order to relieve suffering and prevent cruelty. 

We advocate responsible pit bull ownership and educate the public about breed specific legislation. 

Mayday Pit Bull Rescue is made up of a small group of  volunteers based in Phoenix, Arizona, who are dedicated to improving the lives of pit bulls and re-establishing the breed as a beloved family pet. 

We work directly with local Animal Care and Control shelters to rescue pit bulls from euthanasia with the goal of rehabilitation and permanent placement.

Owner Surrenders

Unfortunately, Mayday Pit Bull Rescue does not have the resources to accept owner surrenders.  The dogs we rescue and rehabilitate have no one to care for them or make decisions on their behalf.  As the owner of a pet, only you can make the right choices for the health, safety, and wellness of the animal for which you are responsible.  Please consider all options before surrendering your pet.  We ask that you do not contact Mayday Pit Bull Rescue if you are seeking a place to surrender your pet.
