Let’s Bring Dogs and People Together
to End Discrimination

Dogs labeled “pit bulls” and all other dogs who face stereotypes are family dogs, like Santiago and Oliver. In other cases, they are service dogs like Pepe or therapy dogs like Julep and Aladdin. What they all have in common is that they are individuals.

People shouldn’t be judged by their disabilities, living situations, income, age, race, gender, sexuality, or by their past – and none of those things should be used as excuses to keep dogs and people apart.

About Us

Whether you choose to make a donation or share our messaging, you are helping to end stereotypes so that families stay together and more dogs find homes.

Our Programs & Grants

We help create opportunities for “pit bull” dogs to show their individuality, whether that’s as a service dog, a K9, or as a pet. We also fight discrimination against dog owners and fund community programs that work to end breed stereotypes.

Our Outreach & Education

We teach animal welfare professionals evidence-based, honest, non-proprietary, affordable, replicable policies and strategies that help all shelter animals and the people who take care of them.

Our Podcast

We unapologetically tackle big topics in animal welfare and how social constructs negatively impact our relationship with dogs and people.
