When my sister told me that she was having trouble owning a Pitbull mix due to prejudices against Pitbulls in her neighborhood, I took action by supporting the end of BSL through writing letters, emailing city governments, etc. Along the way, I met the president of For the Love of Pits at a training class that I enrolled my rescued racing greyhounds in. I was very impressed by the care that this organization took with the training and socialization of the dogs. I am a firm believer that all dogs need training and socialization, but that rescued dogs especially need guidance and love.For the Love of Pits does just that. As a petsitter for the past 12 years, I see many modes of care for all breeds of dog. For the Love of Pits definitely follows a great positive reinforcement path that helps dogs- many of their dogs earn CGC status.This is a fantastic group of dedicated dog lovers.

I have a pitbull of my own and so I am very dedicated to saving this breed and fighting the injustices that threaten these wonderful dogs. I came across For The Love of Pits and I am sure glad that I did. Shana and her team are so dedicated and have shared a lot of information that I truly found helpful. Their love and generousity for these dogs is truly amazing. I would like to become a volunteer or foster, and help them out more when my schedule permits. In the meantime, I have been and will continue to be a donor to this organization because they are doing great work and are so deserving of the public's help to continue to educate, rescue, foster, and adopt out these wonderful dogs. FTLOP is truly dedicated to the pitbulls of NE Ohio and to the humans who are owned by them.

Ways to make it better...

wish that they had a sanctuary so that they could take in even more deserving pitbulls.

For The Love of Pits truly has helped educate us on this fantastic breed. When we first took in a rescued Pit Bull that was going to be shot by our local police, we were unsure what this "terrible breed" would bring into our family, coming from a life of abuse, neglect and potentially either a bait dog or fighter. She surprised us all. Smart, gentle and full of energy, she really showed us what this breed can do and how wonderful they really are. For the Love of Pits gave us plenty of advice, emails and personal phone calls to help us understand where she came from, how to train her properly and most of all, to PROVE to us time and time again with FACTS that this "terrible breed", "monster", "killer" dog is in FACT a product of it's environment and it's either RESPONSIBLE or irresponsible owners. For The Love of Pits trained US as individuals on how to care for an abused dog with little to no training and social skills....
THUS, because of the extensive facts, training and HELP from For The Love of Pits-- We adopted another Pit Bull puppy AND have become huge supporters of the breed and try to let everyone know that they truly are one of america's most miss understood breeds and they need to be given a CHANCE.
For the Love of Pits is also honest in their business and their meaning for the breed. They don't hold back with "eye opening, heart breaking" images, videos and information about the awful abuse these dogs go through on a daily basis in our own back yards. Without those images, stories and information, I do not feel we would understand the breed at all like we do now. They try and spread the word about this wonderful breed of dog and by speaking up and speaking out, that is how things will get changed around here.
For The Love of Pits is a great Non-Profit and they truly have the BEST intentions in mind for the breed and they really know their information and can provide a the knowledge and help many people need to understand and to give the Pit Bull and many other abused "bully breeds" a chance!
Thanks to For The Love of Pits...we now have 2 beautiful Pit Bulls in our home that bring us love, joy and companionship with plenty of high energy to come home to everyday.

For The Love of Pits always sends me e.mail updates concerning current legislation within the state of Ohio concerning breed specific laws that are being considered and negatively effect the pitbull breed and their owners. Attached to these emails are email addresses, phone numbers, etc to the involved law makers and politicians, giving citezens a means of contacting these officials and voicing their concerns. I believe that on many occasions, the voice of the people has made a positive difference for the dogs and their owners. Unfortunately Cleveland, Oh has a policy of not adopting pitbulls the city kennel takes in, regardless of their temperament, all are euthanized. FLOP rescues some of these dogs, places them in foster homes and eventually finds adoptive homes for them. FLOP also raises money for dogs in certain situations where medical treatment or some other assistance is needed. The information they provide is more than most people with busy lives would have time to gain on their own. They motivate and facilitate people to effectively help their mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Gave co workers information FLOP provided about a seminar concerning the body language of dogs, realizing what is threatening and non threatening behavior. Then using this knowledge to lessen the chance of a negative encounter.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it larger so it could help more dogs.

I donated the money without further knowledge of the organization and they saved the dog. They are the "real thing".

The only thing I would change is: have them have more funds and supporting members.
