Friends of Terriers, established in 1989, is a small volunteer rescue league exclusively serving the American Pit Bull Terrier and American Staffordshire Terrier. Due to the vast number of 'pit bulls' needing help and the fact that this is a one person operation (with a network of foster homes), Friends of Terriers only serves Hunterdon, Warren and Somerset counties in New Jersey. Rescue dogs are taken from these areas first and put on a priority waiting list until a foster home opens.

If a foster home is available and there is no dog to fill it in these areas, a dog will be accepted from NEW JERSEY ONLY on a first come, first serve basis. Phonecalls outside Hunterdon County are returned on a collect basis.

All dogs are evaluated for temperament, neutered, given all necessary inoculations, and heartworm tested. In the foster homes, dogs are crate trained, housebroken, socialized and receive basic manners. Dogs are placed in permanent homes through an extensive screening process of the potential applicant, and placed under a binding adoption contract with an adoption fee. Behavioral counseling and in-home obedience is available to pit bull owners in need, as well as referrals to other purebred rescue leagues (if and when time permits).

A sample copy of Pit Stop, the quarterly publication of Friends of Terriers, is available at no charge, by writing to the above address and enclosing a #10 self-addressed stamped envelope with 55 cents postage.
