What We Do 

Change of Heart Pit Bull Rescue is dedicated to education, outreach and saving the lives of pit bull type dogs that are most in need. Many of our dogs come to us needing decompression time, behavioral training, medical rehabilitation. Each dog is fully evaluated and cared for medically prior to placement. In addition to rescue we hold free community dog training classes to help keep dogs in their homes by providing help to those who do not know how to handle their big pups. We have saved countless lives with this program alone. 


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. We built a small center to provide a safe place for pups that are not ready for foster homes or adopters yet. This provides a place for dogs in need of deompression to come and learn about compassion and love. Many dogs are not ready to be fostered or adopted and our hope is to build an additional  place so we can expand.  Our volunteers have seen some of the most horrific cases of abuse. Our hope is that you will help us build another building for these lost souls who need some extra help prior to going into a foster home or being adopted.
