Big Apple Bull Terrier Rescue is no longer active.  If you adopted a dog from us (or we helped you in the past with your bully's behavior or health problems) and you need to reach us, please email 

We still have one wonderful dog who needs a permanent home:  Jack.  You can learn about him on our Adopt a Pet and Petfinder pages.

And we have yet another wonderful dog who still needs a boatload of medical care, so any contributions to her vet bills would be greatly appreciated. Her name is Delilah, and she was pulled from the New York City shelter with several health problems one of which is defying diagnosis. She will be going to a specialist at Tufts University for advanced procedures to determine the cause of her problem. You can read all about her, and get news of  our May 2016 fundraiser, by following Delilah's Diary on Facebook.  There will be plenty of unique, mostly bull-terrier-themed items for sale and auction, and at all price points. 

If you'd like to donate directly, you can mail donations to the address above, or email us at for address and phone number of the veterinary office and a copy of the veterinary estimate. You can also donate via Paypal (Enter our email addy:

We are forever grateful to our supporters and adopters and most of all to the dogs, who kept us humble and introduced us to so many good and decent people.

We remain responsible for all the dogs we placed, until the end of  their days, so if you adopted a dog from us and can no longer keep it, contact us and we will rehome your bullie in an equally loving household.  All prior adoption contracts remain in force.
