The CRA Needs Your Help

Help Us!

All of our activities, from putting on educational dog shows to boarding dogs and finding homes for them, require money. We need lots of help from people who care about the American Pit Bull Terrier. If you would like to volunteer your time in any way (providing a foster home for a dog or putting on a fundraiser, etc.), please contact us.

If you'd like to become a "Friend of the CRA" and receive periodical updates on our activities, or if you'd like to sponsor a dog who needs you (provide monetary support for his/her care until a permanent home is found), please let us know.

Friend of the Chako Rescue Association

Dues are $15 every six months, or $30 a year. As a Friend of the Chako Rescue Association, you'll recieve e-mail updates (or postal mail updates if you don't have an e-mail account) of our activities, including dogs in our custody and dogs placed. You'll receive advanced information on shows, press events, and any other activity the CRA sponsors. If you own APBTs anywhere in the United States, you can rest assured that your dues go toward helping you and your dog. We are an active organization dedicated to saving the APBT and combating the negative media image surrounding the dog. We aim to eliminate breed-specific legislation and restore the APBT to the respect it deserves. In addition, by lifting the image of the APBT, we will also be lifting the image of many of the other breeds that have gotten the "backlash" from the APBT, including the American Staffordshire Terrier and other breeds that are considered "vicious."

If you are interested in volunteering your time, please contact us at
