For the Love of PITS is a foster-based, all-volunteer Ohio rescue dedicated exclusively to rescuing homeless, abandoned, abused and unwanted "Pit Bulls" and other bully breeds subjected to the same discrimination. We are funded solely by donations so we rely on the generosity of private supporters to help us continue helping these misunderstood animals. It is with alarming frequency that we are contacted to help Pit Bulls with chains embedded in their necks; chained to a fence or tree without shelter, food or water; that are emaciated and left behind after a family moves; and from other horrifying, unbelievable situations. For these reasons, a group of individual who own, love and admire these dogs and who have been rescuing "Pit Bulls" on their own for many years decided to incorporate For the Love of PITS. As a group, we can bring awareness to the misconceptions surrounding, and the true nature of, these wonderful dogs. As a group, we can now focus on saving the dogs that are subjected to cruelty, abuse and mistreatment to a degree and on a scale that no other breed of dog has ever had to endure. We work with various agencies and individuals to rescue and rehabilitate "Pit Bulls" that are deemed "unadoptable" and will likely be euthanized. With rehabilitation, training, personal attention, exercise, medical care and love, most dogs can be successfully matched with a loving new home. We are committed to changing the negative perception of these dogs, to rescuing these dogs and giving them a second chance by finding them loving homes and to providing adoption services and foster care. Later in 2006, we hope to begin community education. In particular, through educational outreach programs and events, we hope to inspire a better understanding and an appreciation of these dogs, to dispel damaging myths and to encourage responsible dog ownership. We will never stop fighting for these dogs.

G.R.I.N. was incorporated in 1992 by a group of golden enthusiasts who recognized the need to find good homes for the countless goldens who are euthanized each year for lack of a loving home with a caring family. The number of unwanted pets filling shelters, pounds, and humane societies is staggering, and the fate of these animals is, at best, depressing. The overwhelming fact is that almost 38% of these dogs are purebred. Thankfully, there are many other purebred enthusiasts who also realize the need to aid their own, and they are networking with us in an effort to help alleviate the burden that shelter workers are faced with daily. The efforts of these people working with rescues are most commendable.

Greyhound Adoption of Chagrin Falls Was established in January of 1993 to attempt to compensate the wonderful greyhound for the injustices bestowed upon them at the hands of the racing industry. Since our inception, we have placed more than 1000 greyhounds in loving homes. We retrieve retired or rejected greyhounds from the racing kennels, bring them to the kennel and prepare them for their new lives.

We are a small group of animal lovers that have formed a no-kill organization that involves the rescuing and rehoming of homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens (purebred and mixes). The majority of our rescues come from county dog pounds in Ohio who are scheduled to be gassed shortly. Owner surrenders are only taken into consideration if space is available.

Lighthouse Boxer Rescue is a non-profit boxer rescue organization dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of displaced boxers and to educating the public on the importance of responsible pet care. Our organization takes in boxers from animal shelters, owner surrenders, and/or stray turn-ins and places them in a trained foster home to be evaluated, vetted, and spay/neutered prior to being placed in adoptive homes. All applications are thoroughly screened through use of personal and vet references and mandatory home visits prior to meeting our dogs. Follow-up visits and/or phone calls are also done on a regular basis. Although we focus primarily on Ohio, we also handle applications from any adjoining state where there is no other recognized Boxer Rescue organization

The Sanctuary for Senior Dogs makes a lifelong commitment to every dog that enters our program: if the dog is too ill or too poorly socialized to be adopted into a loving home, that dog stays with an expereinced Sanctuary foster caregiver for life. The Sanctuary does not euthanize dogs considered "unadoptable"; we euthanize only to alleviate suffering from terminal illness.
