The Merit Pit Bull Foundation

The Truth about Pit Bulls [Infographic]

The Merit Pit Bull Foundation strives for a compassionate world where pit bull type dogs live in responsible homes and where owner education, training and anti-cruelty legislation support all pet owners regardless of breed.

As an organization, the Merit Pit Bull Foundation will:

  • Facilitate the rescue and permanent placement of pit bull type dogs whom, were abandoned, neglected, abused and/or surrendered within NC.
  • Promote pit bull type dog education to the public, media, lawmakers, and others
  • Promote and teach responsible dog ownership.
  • Support community needs relating to the benefit and welfare of pit bull type dogs.
  •  Bring communities together to strengthen the responsible dog owner’s rights.
  • Oppose BSL (Breed Specific Legislation)in all forms. We will, also, actively oppose any legislation either currently on the books or in the form of a bill that we feel is unfair and/or impedes on the rights of responsible dog owners.
  • Support and to help enact more legislative penalties against animal cruelty, neglect, abandonment, and irresponsible actions.
  • Work in conjunction with other rescue groups to promote the values of our organization. While we promote our vision for all breeds, we specifically support pit bull and pit bull “type” breeds.
