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 networks and helps place dogs in need of loving homes and raises thousands of dollars worth of shelter supplies nationwide annually. SUFP's national Spay & Neuter Angel Day initiative started April, 2nd 2016. This massive effort now happens all year round helping pit bull type dogs and their humans in underserved communities. SUFP has marched on Washington, tours, does press, live shows and creates programs to educate, inspire and help save lives. Our SUFP Comedy Special is available now AppleTV and other streaming platforms.

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.

Spay & Neuter ANGEL DAY

Spay & Neuter Angel Day is a national initiative fully funded by the SUFP Foundation which spays and neuters pit bull type dogs in underserved communities. This desperately needed initiative was created in 2016 in loving memory of Angel, who inspired the SUFP foundation. Since its inception this vital effort has spayed and neutered thousands of pit bull type dogs. Spaying and neutering are real and viable ways to lower shelter intake and kill numbers and since the majority of all dogs in US shelters are labeled pit bull "type" dogs we remain dedicated to this program and work tirelessly at growing it. Just one unaltered female and her offspring if not altered can produce and estimated 67,000 dogs over a six year period. ANGEL DAY is making a real impact in communities desperate for the help and will for years to come.

Angel Grants is our most broad program which provides funds to rescues, facilities, individuals, and organizations to help with front line rescue efforts. Front line rescue efforts include shelter dogs in need of medical care, vet bills paid on behalf of individuals in need, providing supplies, AC units, pools, sail shades, enrichment items etc. to large and rural shelters alike. Angel Grants are provided to dogfighting survivors and the organizations who save and rehabilitate them. Angel Grants are used in countless ways which serve our mission to save pit bull type dogs by all means necessary.

The Stand Up For Pits national comedy tour has and continues to sell out nationwide. These special events help educate, advocate, and raise funds for SUFP and the many rescues who participate. Some of the nation's best comedians take the stage to help save inherently good dogs. Stand Up For Pits events provide press opportunities across all platforms which is vital for creating change. From The New York Times to Rolling Stone to Jimmy Kimmel Live every opportunity to combat fear-based ignorance is a win for the dogs. Stand Up For Pits events have also help grow rescues, get dogs placed in loving homes.

SUFP SHELTER SUPPLY DRIVE PROGRAM
This effort provides an opportunity for people in communities where Stand Up For Pits events are happening to donate shelter supplies at the events and are then taken directly to shelters in need. This desperately needed program has and continues to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of much needed shelter supplies for all shelter animals.

We created the SUFP HOPE CAMPAIGN in an effort to get dogs who are out of time and about to be killed in shelters seen and saved. Renowned and brilliantly talented photographers donate their time by going into shelters and photographing pit bull type dogs and this may in fact be their last hope at getting a chance at life. To further help their chances at getting pulled from the shelter the SUFP Foundation offers a $1,000.00 Angel Grant to foster home based reputable 501c3 rescues who save a SUFP HOPE CAMPAIGN hippo. These desperately needed funds provide medical care and supplies which help take the burden of expense off the rescue. We are proud to say this program has and continues to save lives that would otherwise have never had a chance. Our hope also is one day there will be no need for this program because shelters will be empty. Until then we will keep doing all we can to get our beloved underdogs seen and saved through the SUFP HOPE CAMPAIGN.

SAVING JONES
Saving Jones is a feature length documentary film. A biographical social commentary about the abuse and discrimination of dogs as it relates to humans. A truthful look at what is happening to pit bull "type dogs is not an animal welfare issue but rather a broken human and society issue.

LOS ANGELES COUNTY DOGFIGHTING TIP LINE
SUFP created, funds and has been operating the Los Angeles Dog Fighting Tip Line since 2015. This effort/program serves Los Angeles and surrounding area residents. Viable tips received deemed viable are sent to HSUS for review and the Los Angeles District Attorney's office. While the tip line's sole purpose is to field only dogfighting tips SUFP does take the time to forward along cruelty and other miscellaneous calls which need to be handled by LAAS. Los Angeles does not have an Animal Cruelty Task Force so we are doing all we can to help end dogfighting and other animal related crimes with the resources we have.

ONE MILLION PIBBLE MARCH on DC

Population(s) Served

Set to launch Thanksgiving Day 2024. SUFP SERVING ANGELS will go into animal shelters and work with staff and volunteers to provide every animal with a Thanksgiving meal. SUFP and volunteers will record and share the animals receiving their meals on our social media platforms in real time and an SUFP film crew will also shoot the event. SUFP will provide the animals with enrichment items and supplies through an Amazon Wish list created by the shelter which will allow SUFP supporters to help and the supplies will go directly to the facility. SUFP will then have the footage edited and provide the finished piece to the facility and again share on all our social media platforms in hopes of inspiring others to do the same in their hometowns while continuing to get the shelter dogs seen which will increase their chances of being saved.

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.

Below are 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 and donated 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. While still very much a grass roots organization, we continue to grow every year which is always a goal but the real goal of this organization it to one day shut our doors because abuse and discrimination of pit bull type dogs has come to an end.

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 publicly) continues to be effective. The SUFP Foundation has spayed and neutered thousands of pit bull "type" dogs nationwide and intends on increasing that number ever year for as long as it takes. 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. Angel is now in a book called "125 Animals That Changed The World" published by National Geographic. Ms. Corry is currently preparing to direct a feature length documentary about SUFP and the story behind it. SUFP is always working at doing and thinking differently because by doing so, more people are reached and real change is made. The old way is not working and in order to get off the giant hamster wheel that is rescue, we believe thinking and doing different will help make that happen.
