BADRAP started out as a resource for pit bulls and their people in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1999 and has grown into a national sensation - thanks to the dogs who want to be heard.

More than a rescue group, we provide information, training, owner support, disaster relief services and animal welfare program models to help dogs everywhere.

In 2011, BADRAP was ranked nationally as the number one, high-impact nonprofit for Local Animal Welfare, Rights & Protection in GuideStar's Philanthropedia.

Information on pit bulls and why they are great dogs

Bay Area Doglovers Responsible About Pitbulls (BADRAP) has been working for over a decade to help the bully breeds when they landed, as they all too often did, in shelters, but the rescue came to national prominence for its role in saving the canine victims of Michael Vick's horrific abuse, as documented in Jim Gorant's bestselling book The Lost Dogs

In addition to rescuing hundreds of dogs, BADRAP is a strong force for owner responsibility, offering free and low-cost Pit Ed classes weekly in Berkeley. It also offers quarterly fairs in low-income areas, at which collars and leashes, vaccines, spay/neuter vouchers, training and behavior counseling, and microchips are available free of charge to pit bull owners in the community.
