For the Love of Pits will be hosting THE VERY FIRST VACCINATION CLINIC FOR PIT BULLS IN THE CITY OF CLEVELAND!  Pit bull owners can finally receive the help many have needed for so long without fearing discrimination!  The City of Cleveland and, particularly, WARD 14, has been very supportive of this event and very, very helpful with planning.

On Saturday, June 16, 2012, THE FIRST 200 pit bulls (and owners) residing in the City of Cleveland will receive core vaccines for free.  THE FIRST 50 pit bulls may receive $3 heartworm tests!  If we obtain donations, we will purchase additional heartworm tests.  Click here to donate.

All pit bulls attending must be on leashes and controlled by their owners.



Vaccinations / heartworm tests - We want to provide services to all dog owners who attend but need donations to purchase additional vaccinations (Duramune Max5) and heartworm tests. All donations are tax deductible and we will send a receipt to all donors after the event.  We will also need additional syringes in the event we receive donations sufficient to purchase additional vaccinations.

Dewormer (Drontal) - We anticipate that most dogs will have parasites.  Unfortunately, Drontal is extremely expensive and we were unable to obtain donations from businesses or the manufacturer.  We will need donations to purchase Drontal.  All donations are tax deductible and we will send a receipt to all donors after the event.

Collars and Leashes - Many dogs may not have appropriate collars or leashes.  We anticipate seeing many dogs on ropes and chains.  We would like to offer owners collars and leashes for their dogs.  This will make the dogs more comfortable and safe.  We have had leashes and collars donated but need many more.  If you have buckle collars and/or strong 6 foot leashes, please contact Marlo@fortheloveofpits.org to arrange pick up.  If you would like to make a monetary donation towards the purchase of of such items (we purchase these items at cost), please donate via paypal link below.

Food - We receive numerous emails and phone calls from pit bull owners in the City of Cleveland indicating that they can no longer afford to feed their dogs.  We often offer to pay for food to keep the dogs in their homes.  Now that owners know we are holding this event, we've received more calls than ever.  We are hoping to provide all owners who bring their dogs to be vaccinated a bag of food.  Please donate bags of food for this event.  Please contact Marlo@fortheloveofpits.org to arrange pick up.  [We soon plan to organize a program to provide food to low income pit bull owners in need.]

Treats - boxes of treats to offer the dogs while they are standing in line.  Also, soft treats to provide to the dogs after being vaccinated.  Please contact Marlo@fortheloveofpits.org to arrange pick up.

We still need positive certified dog trainers.  Please contact shana@fortheloveofpits.org if you are available to volunteer.
