Who We Help

There are many families who we help that struggle with the different layers of the dangerous breed problem, whether they are the victim of a severe attack, are attempting to pass legislation to make their community safer or whose lives and children's lives have become disrupted after a dangerous breed moves in next door. The most direct ways that we see our nonprofit helping to prevent tragedy comes from advising parents who reach out to us after knowingly or unknowingly adopting a pit bull and bringing it into their home.

One mother began her letter to us:

"Thankfully, I am not writing to tell you of a horror story of how my child or family member was injured or killed by a vicious dog, but I could have been and I wanted to share my story with you and see if you have any information…"

Many cases do involve a horror story that begins with the same lie this family was told. In her case, her family and 3-year old child had very little dog experience. After the loss of their family cat, they decided to adopt a dog. After researching shelters and breeds, they chose an "Australian cattle dog-mix" from a local rescue. Before returning home, they stopped at PetSmart, where three people told them their new young dog was a pit bull -- the rescue had deceived them. "How could they have looked my son in the face and sent him home with a pit bull?" She asked us. After reading the materials on, the family returned the dog to the rescue. Furthermore, the mother wanted to introduce legislation that would save parents from this same dangerous lie.

Her story is just one of the many individual success stories that have kept us going. Learn more about who we help and the many ways that we advocate on behalf of dog attack victims.
