What is BAD RAP?

Welcome to BADRAP's new Cyber Home. This site was designed to help you learn more about pit bull type dogs and the issues that affect them. Whether you're new to the topic or have been around the dogs for many years, there's something here for you. BADRAP started out as a resource for pit bulls and their people in the San Francisco bay area in 1999 and has grown to 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.
