July Volunteer of the Month

Congrats to Shelley A for being our July volunteer of the month! Shelley has been volunteering with It's The Pits for over a year now but also adopted a dog from us over 4 years ago! Shelley had her mind changed about pitties by a shelter volunteer when she adopted her very first pittie ever several years ago. Shelley is an instrumental foster as she is able to quickly take in dogs from one of our shelter partners out in the desert until we can get them down here to us. Why does Shelley volunteer for It's The Pits, "When there was an opportunity to pick up a dog at the shelter out here and just transport to San Marcos last year, I jumped at the chance to help.  That's where it began!  I did a few transports and then there was Ella and her pups.  This was the first foster I had and I will never forget her!  I think what It's The Pits does is just amazing and I truly admire each and every one who donates their time, money, supplies, medical care, etc.  I feel truly blessed to be just a small part of this organization!  I wish there was more I could do.  I plan on being a part of It's The Pits for as long as I can and I will definitely be adopting again when the time is right (we currently have 3 cats and 3 dogs)." Thank you Shelley for your dedication to this breed and our organization!

Thank you Girl Scouts Troop #8783!

Troop #8783 generously donated $330 from their cookie sales to us, in addition to food, treats, toys and handmade rope toys!

Military Bases Ban on Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mixes

Thank you for visiting our site. Military bases do not allow Pit Bulls or Pit Bull mixes to live on base.  Therefore, It's the Pits (ITP) will consider military families but there will be guidelines that must be met and we will decide on a case by case basis.  Since ITP does rescue mixed breed dogs some of our dogs will be allowed in base housing. We would like to extend an invitation to FOSTER one of our dogs at your home off base, while waiting deployment or transfer. Since our pitties need foster homes, and you want a pittie in your life, Fostering is a win-win combo. You'll have full responsibility of caring for your foster, while all medical costs would be taken care of by the Rescue Group. Our doggies need your love and devotion - there's no greater feeling than helping a pittie by giving them a temporary home, while preparing your foster dog for their next assignment - a permanent home.  If you have any questions about the on base ban, we suggest you speak to your Base Commander. Thank you.
