Bright Beginnings

  • Prev

Shadow’s Fund has launched the Bright Beginnings: Pit Bull Puppy Ambassador Program. The program’s purpose is to reduce the population of pit bulls in local shelters, stop backyard breeding, and adopt out puppies that will be ambassadors for the breed in the community. To accomplish this, we are tackling the problem where it begins . . . in back yards around the community.

The Bright Beginnings program takes in litters of “at risk” puppies, and places them in foster homes where they are trained and socialized, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. When the puppies graduate the program, they are young breed ambassadors that are placed in carefully screened homes.

We think this program targets every aspect of the “pit bull crisis” in our community by addressing spay/neuter, early training and socialization, and by expanding the market of pit bull adopters by offering well trained and socialized puppies. Moreover, because of our careful screening process and an adoption contract which mandates that adopters must return the dog to Shadow’s Fund if they can no longer care for their animal, we can say with confidence that our pups will never enter the shelter system. We are giving puppies a bright beginning, so that the breed will have a brighter future! Follow our puppy ambassadors on Facebook.
