Animal Farm Foundation dedicates our resources to securing equal treatment and opportunity for "pit bull" dogs. The Resources section is geared towards supporting others, from animal welfare professionals to individual dog owners, in working towards the same goals.
Organized into categories used by our most frequent visitors, we encourage you to look through each section, even if it falls outside your general area of expertise or interest. There’s something for everyone here.
What you’ll find in each section:
Adoption Support: Looking to turbo charge your “pit bull” dog adoptions? Here you’ll find best practices for increasing adoptions and marketing your dogs, plus FAQs from adopters about “pit bull” dogs and other resources for supporting your available dogs and potential adopters.
Labels and Language: To better understand the role of breed labels and language and the validity of visual identification, this section includes research and FAQs to help illuminate these complex issues.
Dog Enrichment and Training: Working to create a less stressful stay for your shelter dogs? Find out how to increase the quality of their care, provide basic training, and kennel enrichment for the dogs. This section includes step by step training handouts and videos.
