The Pit Stop Program, created by Faithful Friends no-kill shelter, is an education, outreach and intervention program for the local community serving the unique needs of pit bulls and pit bull mixes. This program was created to address the high rates of homelessness and euthanasia of pit bull and pit bull mixes occurring in Delaware. Our goal is to educate the community regarding the misunderstanding of the breeds’ needs which often leads to cruelty, neglect, abuse and problem behaviors.
The Pit Stop will target owners of this breed and provide free services including: vaccinations, spay/neuter, micro-chipping, dog training and supplies.
The Pit Stop program will also enhance our current shelter adoption program by offering potential adopters advice, education about the breed, training, and adoption follow up. Our in-house dogs will receive training and kennel enrichment. Ultimately this program will allow us to introduce breed ambassadors to the community and create a brighter future for pit bulls.
If you need to have a pit bull or pit bull mix spayed or neutered, or you know about one that is being neglected, abused, or has been abandoned, please contact Jaime at 302-427-8514 x4, or by email at [email protected].
