|I am the Majority|
|In addition to our program and events, grants and awards, and on-site shelter, Animal Farm Foundation also provides support to individuals, communities, and organizations around the country on special projects geared towards securing equal treatment and opportunity for “pit bull” dogs. Information and resources from these special projects are listed below. Please check back for updates.
OFFICER SAK AND SNICKERS
In 2011 the town of Aurelia, Iowa, which has a ban on “pit bull” dogs, forced Jim Sak, a disabled Vietnam Veteran and retired Chicago Police Officer who had recently moved to Aurelia so that his wife could care for her ailing mother, to remove his service dog (a "pit bull" dog named Snickers) from town limits.

TRACEY V SOLESKY (MARYLAND)
In April 2012, the Maryland Court of Appeals decision, Tracey v Solesky, modified the common law in Maryland regarding liability for bites attributed to dogs the Court alternately referred to as “pit bull”, “pit bull mix” or “cross‐bred pit bull mix”. The decision establishes a strict liability standard for persons who own, harbor or control “pit bull,” “pit bull mix” or “cross‐bred pit bull mix” dogs, when a dog so labeled injures a person.

THE MAJORITY PROJECT
There are millions of "pit bull" dogs owned by everyday families. These families are the rule, not the exception. We are valued members of our communities and families. We are your co-workers, neighbors, and friends. We are the MAJORITY. Learn more here.
