About Us

OUR MISSION

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization on a mission to “Refuel the Human-Animal Connection” in the Syracuse area through community outreach and educational programming, while advocating for pit bulls and other misunderstood breeds.

OUR STRATEGY

  • Provide free training to City of Syracuse residents who own pit bulls or closely related breeds
  • Offer free humane education at community centers, schools, and public service agencies
  • Advocate for abused pit bull type dogs through reward funds and awareness
  • Connect the community with other animal welfare services and resources
  • Ensure the media accurately portrays pit bull type dogs

OUR GOALS

  • A reduction in the number of pit bull type dogs in animal shelters
  • An increase in the number of pit bull type dogs that are adopted
  • A decrease in euthanasia rates
  • A reduction in dog fighting

OUR ENVISIONED FUTURE

  • A more humane community that treats people and animals with dignity and respect
  • Citizens that are respectful, empathetic, kind, tolerant, and socially responsible

“Over a million pit bulls are euthanized each year. That is over 2,800 dogs killed each day.” Don’t Take PITy. Take Action.
