PAPA Program

Every day we can see without looking at the data that Bully breeds are the highest number of shelter dogs. It is heartbreaking. And we know that for families looking for their next family dog – that going to a shelter can be gut wrenching, if not traumatising.

There are over 100 #inherentlygood bully breeds in Los Angeles Shelters who have lived there since 2017 or 2018 at this very moment.

This is why ISWMP is kicking off the PAPA-Pre-Approve Pitbull Adopter Program. If you are looking for a Pitbull to adopt, we want to pre-approve you!

How does the PAPA program work?
Please apply to adopt with ISWMP in advance, by filling out the adoption paperwork, listing “PAPA Program” in the name of the dog for now. We will complete the process in advance and in the phone interview we will understand the constraints, the type of #inherentlygood Bully Breed you are looking for, and then when we find a shelter dog match we will email you details and when we find a good match, then we will start a “Foster to Adopt” program with you.

Sound like a good way to reduce the number of Pitbull’s stuck in LA Shelters?It sure is!
A Pilot of this program we launched during the months of Oct, Nov, and December in 2019. The program showed fantastic results! The results of this pilot are used and factored into our 2020 Mission, Goals, and Programs and it continues to grow.
Just in the last two years we successfully placed over 100 Pit bulls in their forever homes.

If you wanna learn more or have any questions email us at [email protected] and if you are ready to open your heart to one of these sloppy kissers and adorable huggers, fill out the application and expect our call!

Population(s) Served

Based on sociocultural and population studies we can estimate that 75% of owned dogs remain free roaming while all stray dogs roam freely on the streets of Bali.
Malnutrition, lack of vaccinations and various forms of animal cruelty have been an ongoing issue for the dogs and cats on the island of Bali. However, since the rabies outbreak in 2008 and the fear it caused has resulted in continuous mass culling of free-roaming dogs. Combined with the dog-meat trade and cross-breading from the import of foreign breeds, the Bali Dog is now facing an extreme number of threats.

Due to the insecure economic climate caused by COVID 19 pandemic the majority of these dogs are suffering due to the insecure economic climate in Bali whereby people are barely able to make ends meet, let alone properly take care of their own animals or the stray population in their communities. Tourists that often feed these dogs have also fled the island and aren’t predicted to return for at least a year. Therefore, this emergency street feeding initiative intends to serve not only stray and dumped animals but any dog in need of food and basic nutrition.

Welcome to the last place on earth where elephants, orangutans, rhinos and tigers
live together in the wild.
Reaching across more than six million acres of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the Leuser ecosystem, a pristine intact rainforest, is one of the most ancient ecosystems on earth.The Leuser is home to almost a thousand species of birds and mammals that can not be found anywhere else on the planet. Although it is one of the most biodiverse ecosystems left on Earth, it is also one of the most endangered.

Thousands of acres of the Leuser rainforest are burnt down and bulldozed every year for palm oil production. Where can you find by-products of palm oil? Check the ingredients in the boxes in your pantry, the labels in your clothing, the cosmetics in your makeup bag, the candy in your Halloween bowl, or the paper in your office space. Palm oil can be found in almost everything these days, which means it is being produced at rapid rates, slashing and burning the Leuser every single day.

Part of our mission as I Stand With My Pack is to work collaboratively to help animals in need globally, which is why for the past 3 years we have worked to raise critically needed funds and awareness to help save Sumatra’s Leuser ecosystem. Elephants in the Leuser are estimated to be down to a population of 2800. As a keystone species, their loss is detrimental to all the plants and animals that depend on them to maintain the balance of the ecosystem. Less than 6,500 Orangutan are left in the wild because of this rapid deforestation.

This is why ISWMP has partnered with the Orangutan Information Center in Sumatra to purchase land and develop it into wildlife reserves to protect the majestic species that have existed here for decades. We can’t do it alone, we need your help to protect the Leuser ecosystem before it is gone forever.
