Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals

Mission: Kennel to Couch (K2C) is a 501(c)3 dedicated to Pit Bull Adoption Advocacy. K2C’s core program, K2C Shelter Sponsorship, teams shelters and community partners to sponsor Pit Bulls in need of adoption. Upon adoption, our dogs receive the K2C Pibble Package at no expense to the adopting family. This package currently consists of: 1. Free access to our training videos 2. Free access to our resource library 3. Discounted advanced online training courses 4. Free exam and consultation from Banfield Pet Hospital 5. Discounted Pet Insurance 6. Free "Pibble Package" filled with treats, toys, and goodies to get our families started the day they adopt their new furever friend K2C partner shelters select the Pit Bulls who will receive our K2C Pibble Package based on who has been at the shelter longest, and our community partners provide the resources that make our package possible. The K2C Pibble Package provides the incentive for people to adopt the K2C sponsored dogs. This package ensures that our Pit Bulls receive the support necessary to stay in their new homes, reducing the chance of being returned to the shelter. By providing this sponsorship package post-adoption, we deepen the human-animal bond by relieving some financial stress and providing interactive training.

Target demographics: Kennel to Couch partners with shelters to sponsor the Pit Bulls that have been there longest.

Direct beneficiaries per year: in 2020 Kennel to Couch partnered with our second rescue and had our first ten dogs adopted!

Geographic areas served: Kennel to Couch is based in Harford County, MD with the goal of eventually expanding nationally.

Programs: Kennel to Couch teams community partners to sponsor pit bulls in need of adoption. Upon adoption, our sponsored dogs receive the K2C sponsorship benefits package at no expense to the family.

Kennel to Couch is an incredible organization that has such a thoughtful and insightful approach to helping more dogs (and especially pibbles) find loving homes. I have been hugely impressed with them since day 1.

It’s amazing to see the work Tom does to find Pitties a home. Hearing how he got started after his beloved rocky passed away is rewarding to know he does this from the bottom of his heart and how he keeps working hard to change the stigma Pitties have. Keep up the good work!

Kennel to Couch is a great organization that works to ensure pibbles not only find a loving home but that the new family has the resources to effect a loving transition from the Kennel to their new home. I will always support Kennel to Couch and Tom.

I love Kennel to Couch! I have seen them get many pitties adopted to new homes. I like it because it focuses on a breed that has the most trouble getting adopted and works to educate the public on how amazing they are!

I started walking dogs at the Harford Shelter in 2018 when my dog passed away. There I met Tom and learned how he came to launch K2C following the passing of his beloved dog. Listening to Tom and watching his work, I came to understand that K2C is Tom’s calling, not a hobby. Tom’s efforts acted as a force multiplier for all the outstanding efforts the shelter made in finding the right forever homes for all the animals. Tom focused on the dogs who had been there the longest and his efforts resulted in their adoptions!

I have been working K2C since June 2019, and have witnessed firsthand the passion and dedication behind the incredible mission of K2C. This organization will work tirelessly to ensure each and every sponsored Pit Bull finds a home and that their sponsorship package makes dog adoption well worth it. Each and every donation counts towards making a difference with K2C and that is why I want to support. Dogs mean the world to me, and on behalf of all the Pit Bulls that couldn't be saved, Kennel to Couch will make sure as many find good homes as they possibly can.

Kennel to Couch was born out of a life changing experience with an amazing Pit Bull that wandered into our lives. In his memory we will always have Pit Bulls in our family and we will continue to strive to get as many as we can out of the Kennels and onto Couches! Thank you for our inspiration Rocky boy!

Kennel to Couch is an incredible organizaiton that truly cares about the health and welfare of lovable pit bulls. Their work is vital to our community by clearing up the misconceptions people have for pit bulls, preventing euthanization, and finding homes for them! I learned so much from Tom and his team, and I'm thankful for the work they do!

They aren't just talking at the office or in the gym about how bad people are towards dogs. They aren't just /saying/ that their dogs are family, or just shaking their heads at something wrong - they're seeing a problem and working on a solution - to actually save these animals, rather than erasing them by euthanasia or the like.
These are volunteers, who have lives, who care about this work and are (literally) putting their money where their mouth is.
