the Joy of Pit Bulls
Mission and Purpose.
Pit Bull Synergy is a group of dedicated people who love and advocate for Pit Bull type dogs. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff.
To help keep dogs out of shelters
Methods of responsible rescue, rehoming, ownership, and humane training
The general public’s perception
Volunteers bring about change. Volunteers’ efforts make causes more effective. In addition, organizations could not exist without them. There are numerous ways to become involved with worthwhile organizations. The most important thing is to take the first step.
“Start where you are. Use what you have.
Do what you can.”
A rescue organization is only as good as the volunteers who work with it. A Pit Bull rescue should be familiar with the breed’s health, temperament, and typical behaviors.
Pit bulls need responsible owners. And, that will ensure that their dogs are spayed and neutered. Vaccinations and veterinary care are current and that they are licensed and microchipped.
While studies differ, they all agree that Pit Bulls are by far the most euthanized dogs in shelters. According to Save-a-Bull, “studies estimate that up to 1 million pit bulls are euthanized each year, or 2,800 per day.”
Pit Bull Synergy team members believe that positive, humane training methods are the best. Training methods that are based on an understanding of how dogs learn. We believe in reward-based programs that teach dog owners positive ways to train their dogs.
Pit Bull Synergy is opposed to the cruel blood sport of dogfighting. Dogfighting is one of the most heinous forms of animal cruelty. Please visit the ASPCA site for more information on how you can help stop dogfighting.
