I started volunteering with For the Love of Pits in the Fall of 2008, after replying to an urgent plea for a foster home. What I experienced from this group was extraordinary! Unlike other rescue groups, For the Love of Pits took the time to help with the transition of dogs in my home, they provided everything that I (and the dog) needed and was always just a phone call away if I needed them. I had been involved with other rescue groups and never could understand why foster homes were always "left in the dark" after they took in a dog. For the Love of Pits understands that their foster homes are their #1 priority in saving dogs!

I originally became involved with For the Love of PitsĀ® as a foster to an urgent dog in need. This dog faced euthanasia at the city kennel merely because of her breed. For the Love of Pits saved her but needed a place for her to heal while they searched for her forever home. As a foster, I saw how dedicated Shana was to helping not only pit bull type dogs but also their owners. Shana (and Kim) were very helpful to me as a foster and I decided that I could repay them by becoming a volunteer. We have since found a home for my foster and I am now fostering another dog and am even more involved with the group. I am proud to say that I'm a member of For the Love of Pits because not only are we helping pit bulls but also helping to raise awareness for this misunderstood breed and educate others about them.
