The Cedar Valley Pitbull Rescue is dedicated to finding loving homes and a new leash on life for displaced pit bulls. We are a non-profit 501c3 based in Waterloo, IA.  Our animals available for adoption are located throughout central Iowa in dedicated foster homes. 

*Effective Immediately*

New changes to the Cedar Valley Pit Bull Rescue:
1.We will be changing our adoption fees for our puppies to $250.00
2.We have made changes to our application approval process. We will now consider adoption to renters on a case by case basis. Prior to approval, renters will be required to provide an approval letter from their landlord. We will also be in contact with the landlord.
3.We are also changing how far we adopt to. We currently go 2 hours, but we will now go up to three hours and we plan to extend that in the future.
4. We also require that ALL applicants complete all sections of the application. Failure to thoroughly complete the application will result in a denial. Falsifying an application will also be grounds for denial.

Please note:

To adopt or be a temporary home for any of our animals your other animals must be up to date on vaccinations and fixed. 

Check out our adoptable animals, learn more about pit bulls, learn how to volunteer, follow our success stories and much more. Check back often as adoptable animals are added frequently. As always, please follow us on Facebook for immediate updates.

See all the Dogs!
Niya is a very good girl and loves every person she meets. However, she does not get along with other animals and needs to be the only animal in the home.  Niya is high energy and would do very well with owners who are active and like to run. She would also do well with a fenced in yard to be able to run off some of her energy.  She would do best with owners with experience with dogs that are high energy and who can be reactive to other dogs when out in public.  
Billy is a cute lab mix who had a rough start to life. He came in to the rescue severely malnourished and with heart worms. He has made a full recovery but needs a special home as a result.   Billy can be protective of his person and would do best in a home with only one person. He does not do well with cats, dogs, or kids and has had issues with men in the past.   Billy is currently looking for a foster or adopter. If you want a dog who will focus all his attention on you then this is the dog for you.
