What We Do 

Change of Heart Pit Bull Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of pit bull type dogs that are most in need. This means taking the dogs that have been in the shelter the longest or the dogs that are rescue only and not available to the public for medical reasons. Many of the dogs we take in are on their last day and in extreme danger of euthanasia. In additon to rescue we provide education and outreach nationwide. 



How COHPBR Got Started 

Change of Heart Pit Bull Rescue is  a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed  in Southern California in 2009  by Sarah Kosinski. As a educational and outreach program. COHPBR quickly became one of the most well known pit bull related organizations in the nation. Providing educational materials and outreach assistance throughout the United States. Sarah  always vowed to save the lives of the dogs who were most in need of assistance. Many times the dogs came to them with broken spirits, or severe medical conditions. 


Expanding COHPBR 

in 2014 we made the decision to purchase a gorgeous ranch property in Raleigh NC nestled away beneath the big oak trees in the Gorgeous city of oaks. We are surrounded by nature trails and just 1 mile from the biggest lake in North Carolina. The location is perfect for our rehabilitation program. Our dream is to build a orphanage for pit bull type dogs in need of a place to come and learn about compassion and love. Our volunteers have seen some of the most horrific cases of abuse. Our hope is that you will help us build a place for these lost souls who need some extra help prior to going into a foster home or being adopted. 



The Barn 

Designed to give comfort by providing a home like environment the barn will be their home until they are ready to go into a foster home or an adoptive home. This building will allow us to help with the worst cruelty cases. Providing the dogs with a quiet place to rediscover life. Our compassionate team will provide dedicated care to the dogs that enter our program. 

The barn will be fully insulated with lots of windows providing natural light,  heat and air.  Each dog will have there own space in a home like environment. The barn will include all the sounds of home, a washer and dryer, sink, and feed station along with a office and bathing area. The large play area will be divided to provide multiple exercise and training yards.
