Mission

The Stand Up For Pits Foundation is dedicated to ending abuse, discrimination and saving the lives of pit bull "type" dogs nationwide. In addition to educating, advocating and front line rescue efforts SUFP funds and operates LA County's dogfighting tip line. SUFP helps network and place dogs in need of loving homes and raises thousands of dollars worth of shelter supplies nationwide annually. SUFP's largest and desperately needed initiative is Spay & Neuter ANGEL Day. This massive effort happens April 2nd every year in cities across the country. In just 2 years over 1100 pit bull type dogs have been fixed. SUFP's mission also includes marching, touring, doing press, live shows, creating and producing advocacy materials etc.. so as to educate, inspire and empower people to get involved.

Notes from the nonprofit

The Stand Up For Pits Foundation has and will continue to educate, advocate and save lives through different and unconventional ways. The old ways are not enough and we encourage everyone in and outside of the animal community to do the same. Animal abuse, discrimination and mass murder is everyone's problem and a direct reflection of a very broken society and it's everyone's responsibility to help end it. Those who abuse and kill animals will likely and most often times DO go on to commit crimes against people and continues to make communities unsafe for humans and pets. Until our law and policy makers make ending animal abuse - this very much includes dogfighting - the it's up to us to do all we can, however we can to end it. Everyone has the power to make an impact and SUFP will continue to encourage empower people to take action and will support and stand with those who remain dedicate to our inherently good dogs.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The SUFP Foundation focuses on ending abuse, discrimination and saving lives. We do this through education, advocacy, front line rescue efforts, funding and operating of the LA County dogfighting tip line and our Spay & Neuter program etc. For four decades dogs labeled "pit bulls" have been wrongly vilified which has and continues to result is massive loss of life. Fear based ignorance and BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) is discrimination. Discrimination is taught. Humans are not born to discriminate, they learn to discriminate. We are dedicated to changing the social consciousness about dogs labeled "pit bulls." Addressing this issue head on and educating people in and outside of the animal community about how animal abuse and discrimination directly effects them is vital to change. Those who support the genocide of any living being and/or abuse animals are a danger to everyone and we encourage and empower people in communities to take action to stop all forms of hate and abuse.

Los Angeles County Dogfighting Tip Line

The SUFP created, funds and operates the Los Angeles County dogfighting tip line. The tip line was launched in July 2015 and serves over 10 million people. SUFP consulted with LA County's DA, Law enforcement and the nations leading dogfighting experts to create a script and system that would help combat dogfighting. In addition to providing Spanish and English speaking live operators 365 days a year and 24 hours a day, SUFP provided and continues to provide all city and county vehicle decals. At launch SUFP funded billboards, posters, post cards and bumper stickers throughout the county as well. Dogfighting is very underground and the only way to get anonymous tips is through community outreach. Which takes time, effort and funds and SUFP is committed. Dogfighting is a national epidemic that gets little to no attention. Dogfighting is one of the cruelest forms of animal abuse and factually, those who do it will likely and most often time DO go on to commit crimes against humans. To ignore this crime and the people who do it, condones and puts humans and pets at risk. In order to make communities safer for humans and pets, animal abusers must be removed from society.

Spay & Neuter ANGEL Day happens every April 2nd in memory of Angel. This much needed national initiative has spayed over 1000 pit bull type dogs in just two years and will happen every year with increased numbers. Spaying and Neutering treats the problem not the symptom. It is vital to saving lives. Just one unaltered female and her offspring if not altered can produce and estimated 67,000 unwanted animals. Many people want to spay and neuter their pets but simply to not have the funds to do so. This initiative provides the people and their pet FREE spay and neuter which can often include, e-collar, pain meds and vaccines, depending on the clinic. The SUFP Foundation is proud of this initiative and work tirelessly at education people about the importance of spaying and neutering.

SUFP has and continues to provide nonprofits with ANGEL grants ranging from $1000 to $10,000 ever year all year round.

SUFP prefers to give ANGEL Grants to smaller pit bull “type” dog nonprofits doing great work who don’t have sponsors, celebrity backing, large donors and need funds and exposure. SUFP has helped grow nonprofit rescue groups nationwide for 8 years. SUFP loves learning about nonprofits doing great things and supporting their efforts. We encourage people to inform us about nonprofits who go beyond rescue and focus on fixing problems. Groups with educational programs, homeless outreach, spay and neuter clinics, prevention initiatives etc. We love to hear all about the work they’re doing and share it with other and are honored to provide much needed funds to support their missions.

This has been extremely impactful and has helped and saved countless lives.

To be considered nonprofits are required to fill out the SUFP grant form and agree to terms and provide a TAX ID #.

The Stand Up For Pits Donation Dirves happen in conjunction with our live events in cities around the country. Donation Drives provide an opportunity for people in communities where Stand Up For Pits events are happening to donate shelter supplies. The supplies are taken directly from the event to local shelters. These drives provide much needed support and supplies to shelter animals and have currently raised hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of supplies.

Stand Up For Pit LIVE EVENTS are produced by the Stand Up For Pits Foundation. A "program" is not exactly an accurate description for the live events but the results of these events are extremely impactful.

Stand Up For Pits live events raise funds, awareness, shelter supplies for local shelters across the country and help place dogs in loving homes. The funds raised from this "program" are also used for front line rescue efforts, help fund our initiative, front line rescue efforts and the many groups and missions we donate to. All of which help educate, advocate and save the lives of pit bull type dogs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to stop the genocide of pit bull "type" dogs, end abuse and discrimination and by doing so create safer communities for humans and pets. Our goal is to educate society about the inherent goodness of dogs who have been wrongly vilified for decades and encourage compassionate and ethical treatment for all dogs.

JUST A FEW Stand Up For Pits Foundation STRATEGIES

SUFP has created a template for a dog fighting tip line which is extremely effective and currently serving the over 10 million residents of Los Angeles County.

SUFP has created a first of it's kind initiative called Spay & Neuter ANGEL Day which fully funds the spaying and neutering of pit bull "type" dogs around the country. This effort is desperately needed and vital resource to lowering the intake and euthanasia numbers across the country. It is effective and saves millions of lives.

SUFP does live events around the country which raises money for nonprofit pit bull "type" rescues who are also dedicated to educating, advocating and saving the lives of pit bull "type" dogs. SUFP has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to aid nonprofits nationwide and continues to do so.

SUFP does the SUFP Donation Drive in cities all over the country which has and continues to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of much needed shelter supplies. Supplies in over crowded shelters are always desperately needed and this effort is extremely impactful in improving the quality of life for animals stuck in shelters.

SUFP does several educational merchandise campaigns every year, which have and continue to be extremely impactful. Each piece of merchandise carries a well thought out an designed message which provided endless opportunities for people to educate and advocated.

SUFP events provide national press opportunities in which Ms. Corry is able to educate listeners, readers and TV watchers around the country and world. This too is a vital and much needed strategy and effort in order to create change.

The SUFP is not only capable of accomplishing all our goals, but we have and will continue to do so.

Our accomplishments a vast because SUFP has a massive army of doers fighting along side us and dedicated to our mission. The One MILLION Pibble march on Washing dc made US history. On May 3rd, 2014 thousands from all over marched and rallied for our dogs and the ripple effect from just that effort continue. People who attended that amazing day and followed the journey of that march went onto start rescues, foster, adopt and create initiatives which are still happening today. The SUFP live events have and continue to save lives and help shelter animals nationwide and the dogfighting tip line (though we are not allowed to post details about publicly) continues to be effective. In two years the SUFP Foundation has spay and neutered over 1000 pit bull "type" dogs and intends on increasing that number ever year for as long as it's needed. SUFP finally produced and published the first ever Stand Up For Pits comedy special which provides a great way for people to support the cause while reaching many more about our mission and dogs. Next up is more of the same and this October Angel will be published in a book called "125 Animals That Changed The World" published by National Geographic. We announce what's next when they are solidified and we are currently working on a couple of things. SUFP is always working at doing and thinking differently. The old way is not working and if we are to ever truly get off this giant hamster wheel that is rescue, we believe that is how it will happen.
