Pit Sisters rescue offers second chances to many dogs that would otherwise not have a bright future. The TAILS program is a Win-Win for people and dogs. I have been volunteering for over a year now and am proud to be part of this very dedicated, hard working and caring team.
Pit Sisters changes the lives of both humans and dogs. Anyone who spends an afternoon volunteering with this organization sees what an impact they make. Through the TAILS program, they give low-risk inmates a purpose, while saving the lives of homeless dogs at the same time. Many of the inmates say they never had a purpose before joining the program. These inmates are people who will be released onto our streets in the matter of months or a year. The program gives them life skills they need to be successful outside of jail, making them less likely to re-offend. I encourage everyone to spend some time getting involved with this group. It's impossible to volunteer with them and not be changed for the better. And their dogs are amazing.
I’ve been volunteering with Pit Sisters for over a year. It has been a pleasure seeing all the hard work and dedication the rescue has for the dogs. I can honestly say it has been the best rescue I have worked for, and I’ve been involved with a couple others. The director is hands on with her years experience and expertise. Thank you Pit Sisters for your life saving mission! It’s all about the dogs
I've been volunteering with Pit Sisters since the beginning of this year. This is an amazing group of people who truly care for the animals they look after. Pit sisters takes in dogs that are in extreme danger of euthanasia and through training programs work so hard to help them gain enough skills to be adoptable. I am proud to do what I can to help them.
I love Pit Sisters. They gave me my sweet Shaina. My greyhound had been an only dog for a year as we had lost our 17 year old Shiba Inu the previous year. I wanted to adopt a pit bull and, as I’d had black cats and dogs in the past (hating the fact that being black is a negative to so many people), I was hoping for a black buddy for my Shiloh. A friend put me in touch with Pit Sisters. Soon Shiloh and I were on our way to meet Shaina (not so named at the time) and her foster mom Carol. When Shiloh & Shaina met it was instant love. They have been together ever since. As I said in the beginning, I ❤️ Pit Sisters!
I have volunteered with Pit Sisters for over a year. I am so proud to be a part of a group that gives both dogs and people a second chance.
I met the sisters in 2012 when they were starting up. it was my first deep dive into rescue and all that it entails. Pit Sisters is the total package in rescue. Intelligence, knowledge, education, integrity. I was lucky enough to volunteer with Jen until we relocated (military) to Alabama where we started our own rescue. IMHO Pit Sisters/ Jen is responsible for every dog we have saved.
She not only works for her organization but is at the ready anytime someone needs help. All rescues could learn a thing or two from PS business model. I know i did and i am thankful every single day. Karrie Matlock
I’ve been following Pit Sisters for years, going to their events, watching them educate the public, celebrating their successes & crying with them when something doesn’t go quite right, which yes, can happen. Rescue work is a gnarly business, having to say no sometimes, & relying on volunteers, not paid employees, begging for donations, fundraising, adoption events, etc. Two years ago, after sponsoring dogs & witnessing transformations in both humans & dogs, I decided to become very actively involved. This organization gives more than 100 percent of their dedication to the dogs who need it the most, the most being the key word there. Their are people who critique Pit Sisters saying they didn’t help them, well honestly, unless you have walked in their shoes, you may not understand. Pit Sisters works with some of the toughest cases you cannot even imagine & I won’t go into the graphic details but I can assure you, they do everything humanly possible to save lives. It has been my pleasure to foster to adopt two dogs from them & I will continue to fight for these dogs until no more need saved.
I started volunteering with Pit Sisters in May and it has been the most amazing experience! This organization helps so many dogs that wouldn’t have a chance if Jen hadn’t stepped in and saw their potential.
I’ve had the amazing opportunity to help with not only caring for the dogs we have but also helping with the TAILS program. I’ve seen firsthand how proud these individuals are that they have a dog to care for and how accomplished they feel when their dogs learn something new and excel at it.
Jen saves not only the lives of dogs but human lives. It has been an absolute honor being able to work with her and the other volunteers of Pit Sisters that pour their hearts in to these amazing dogs.
Pitts sisters responded to a call about a dog fighting ring that had just been busted in Gainesville. When they arrived on the scene they realized that it wasn’t just Pits that had been affected but there were other breeds of dogs that were there as well. One of those dogs was a hound mix who had double ear infections, was heartworm positive, and weighed only 16 pounds even though she should have weighed closer to 30. Without hesitation Jen and her team also scooped up this poor dog and brought her back to Jacksonville. They would go on to name her Phoebe and would work relentlessly to help her to put on weight and fight off the double ear infections and heart worms, even though they didn’t know at the time if they would be able to find an adopter or not.
Little did Jen know that just a few months before our family had suffered a tragic loss when our 11-year-old rescued beagle, Maggie, suddenly passed away from COPD. Even though our hearts were broken the most broken hearted member of our family was our other beagle Sport. He desperately missed his sister and the other member of his pack. When we saw Phoebe’s story we knew immediately that she was meant to be ours. We contacted Pitts sisters and the rest, as they say, is history. She has been a member of our life for three years now and we can’t imagine her not being here with us. She is our spoiled little princess and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank-you Jen and the entire Pitt Sisters Team.
Pit Sisters stepped up and took some dogs from the shelter I work for in Ontario Canada, Jen poured her heart and soul into these dogs and loved them as we had for so long, not only that but she understood our love and devotion and kept us undated, she runs a wonderful world class rescue
Pit Sisters Inc. stepped up during Hurricane Florence and rescued 10 babies from The Dillon County Animal Shelter and sent transport for them. Hours before the storm hit a terrible person dumped a mama and her 3 puppies in a field. They, without hesitation, said to put them on the transport too. So grateful for their help in evacuating the shelter before the Hurricane and all the flooding.
Amazing group, they care deeply about every dog that comes into their rescue, every dog is placed with utmost care to ensure a permanent loving home. I've never seen a rescue work so hard. Thank you for saving Miss Honey. You all Rock!!
I had spoken to Pit Sisters when I knew it was time for me to adopt a dog. I told them that I had two small children and a busy day. I went and did a meet and greet with puppies and fell absolutely in love with their mom, Daisy. I work with animals for a living and Daisy is truly one of the sweetest most well behaved dogs I have ever met. Anyone who has ever met Daisy including her vet hospital says that she is one of the sweetest dogs ever. She loves every dog she meets and has been to several dog parks with me and has played with all of my neighbors dogs too! That was important to my lifestyle. Pit Sisters did an amazing job matching me with the perfect dog for me! She is wonderful with my children too. I am looking forward to the day I can call them again to add a friend for Daisy!!
Pit Sisters truly does always put the dogs first. When I began fostering for them 2.5 years ago, I quickly realized that I had found my place and my purpose in the world. So far, Pit Sisters has given us the opportunity to foster almost 100 dogs! From puppies, mama dogs, dog fighting cases, hoarding cases, mangy dogs, emaciated dogs, you name it. Jen's passion and dedication to changing the perception of the Pit Bull breed is unwavering. I am so lucky to be a part of this wonderful organization.
I can’t say enough positive things about Jen and all of the volunteers! The dogs come first, and this organization makes sure things to keep them at the forefront. Jen is always available when I have questions and has even stepped and helped me with some tough cases when no one other organization would. I admire Jen and all the volunteers for all of their hard work and the many lives they have saved !
Pit Sisters is a wonderful organization, who invests in people and dogs that others in society may pass by. They work hard to make sure they take good care of the dogs they rescue and they find great homes for the dogs they adopt out. We adopted an amazing dog my wife is working with to certify as a therapy dog. Thank you, Pit Sisters, for all you do for the community here and beyond.
Jen and all the volunteers really are all about the dogs! We got our dog from her 5 years ago. She did a House Check and made sure Radar was a fit for us. She’s readily available for any questions you have. Thank you for all you do for all the dogs!
