Our non-profit endowment helps shelters find FURever homes for vulnerable pit bulls.
Can you help us?
- Help at-risk pit bulls escape euthanasia and transition from Kennel to Couch
- Support shelters by freeing up kennel space and significantly reducing operating costs
- Increase pit bull adoption to loving homes, starting with those at shelters the longest
- Offer our services 100% FREE, so shelters and adopters can focus on saving pit bulls!
What we do
Sponsor At-Risk Pit Bulls
We identify the pit bulls that have been at the shelters longest, and then we sponsor their adoption from kennels at partner shelters.
Find Loving Homes
We help find loving homes for these pitties, so they can be adopted – and enjoy lounging comfortably on couches.
Free Up Everyone
Our 100% FREE services enable shelters and adopters to free up kennel space and help even more pitbulls find their FURever couch.
Solving the Pit Bull Problem
- Pit bulls make up the majority of the dog population in shelters
- 80% of shelter pit bulls are euthanized every year
- The FURever Fund is designed specifically to help save these lovable dogs
- We invest in shelters and individual dogs because a local, personalized adoption plan is the most effective long-term solution.

We Need Your Help
The FURever Fund started with a $150K grassroots fundraiser but we need your investment to:
Our goal is to continually sponsor 50 pit bulls at a time by supporting 50 shelters across all 50 states.
A small fraction will be used to hire a lean, effective team to oversee day-to-day operations.
Partner with Shelters
We need to get the word out, so we can expand our network of Kennel to Couch-associated shelters.
With a large enough endowment, the FURever Fund can help save pit bulls in perpetuity without soliciting further public donations.
Saving Pit Bulls, one wet nose at a time
Our mission is two-fold
Have our partner shelters prevent our sponsored animals from being euthanized due to overcrowding, giving our furry friends the time needed to find their furever home.
Break through stereotypes associated with Pit Bulls by teaming with community partners and nationally-recognized programs to provide support and professional training assistance to the loving families who adopt our dogs. With your help, a pitbull non-profit saves lives!
