At Animal Farm Foundation, our work doesn’t end at supporting “pit bull’ dogs and their owners. We work to support entire communities and everyone in them. 

All dogs are individuals and our programs highlight how individual dogs can have a lasting, positive impact on the world.

Assistance Dogs

Our Assistance Dog program highlights the fact that every dog, no matter its breed, breed-mix, background, or what it looks like, is an individual. This program changes the lives of the dogs and makes the world more accessible for people with disabilities.

Detection Dogs

We provide expertly trained former rescue “pit bull” dogs at no cost to police and sheriff departments across the country. The dogs are trained for 4 to 6 weeks by SectorK9. Then, the dogs go to work keeping their communities drug-free.

Grant Programs

Animal Farm Foundation grants funds to animal welfare organizations who share our philosophy of treating all dogs as individuals. Our grants fund initiatives for outreach, enrichment, socialization, adoption, and education, as well as play yard construction.

PAWS of Purpose

We match dogs with inmates at Rikers Correctional Facility in New York for an 8-week program that enriches the lives of both dogs and humans.

Workshops for Animal Welfare Workers

Our shelter workshops pair people with dogs to educate animal welfare workers on how to better serve the dogs in their care and their communities, including removing the barriers “pit bull” dogs often face in shelters.

Our workshops for 2017 are full, but we’ll update this space once we announce workshops for 2018.
