Come Meet Us At These 2014 Events
How We Work
We are proud to have saved thousands of dogs through our active social media network. We are part of a vast network of rescue groups all over the country and have supporters all over the world. Our efforts save many dogs every day. This is our primary method of communication as situations change so quickly.
We are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization so all donations are tax deductible. We will be glad to provide a receipt for tax purposes.
Our Service Area
Our service area is the state of New York. Revenues are generated through adoption fees and donations. Being a small operation, we do not own or lease office space. In addition, there are no paid employees or consultants.
We have relationships with several area shelters. Some of our dogs are rescued from shelters where the dogs will be euthanized within 24-48 hours unless there is intervention. Dogs also come to us as "call-ins" of abuse cases and owner-surrenders.
Foster Home Network
We have created a "foster home network" that can accommodate up to 50 dogs per year that we can rescue and find adoption homes. To clarify, we do not operate a shelter.
Our rescued dogs are placed in foster homes until they are adopted. We will pay for food, medical, and ANY repairs, (fences, etc.) to make sure the animal is safe and well taken care of until adopted.
What We Provide
The organization provides our rescued dogs with veterinary care, shots, spay or neuter, medical treatment for any illnesses, behavioral and obedience training, and socialization opportunities. They spend an average of two months in a foster home until they are adopted. We provide dog food, but will also accept funds for food.
Fund-Raising & Adoption Events
We host events throughout the year. We bring available dogs out to "meet and greet" and have materials and volunteers to help educate the public on the Pit Bull breed. We also often have Pit Crew products and gear that may be purchased to show support. All proceeds from purchases and donations at events go to the rescue dogs. Visit us here or on FaceBook to find out where we will be next.
Community Outreach: Zeus The Service Dog
Zeus has now officially been fully certified as a service dog.
Definition: "Desirable character traits in service animals typically include good temperament or psychological make-up and good health. Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and in recent years American Pit Bull Terriers are the most common breeds used as service dogs. Any breed or breed mix is capable of being a service dog, though few dogs have all of the health and temperament qualities needed."
