THE PERFECT MATCH AWARD
The Perfect Match award celebrates the human-canine bond by awarding $500 to not-for-profit shelters or rescues that make the "perfect match" between an owner and an adopted shelter dog. Together, the honored pair will be winning hearts and opening minds, paving the way for other dogs and owners who are still searching for their Perfect Match. This award showcases an adoption that has benefitted the community in that it is an excellent example of the human-canine bond in action.
To qualify, the Perfect Match nominees must have been together for at least three months. The dog must appear to be a pit bull dog or a pit bull dog mix. The owner must be a positive role model for the community, showing how wonderful it is to have a dog identified as a pit bull as your best friend!
AKC CANINE GOOD CITIZEN® INCENTIVE AWARD
Working as a team with their human companions, dogs of all shapes and sizes have passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen® test and are now recognized as valued members of their communities. Animal Farm Foundation provides an Incentive Award to encourage dog and owner teams to earn their AKC CGC® certification as a way to support their community's shelters and rescues. While all dogs are welcomed to participate, Animal Farm Foundation will award $150 to pre-qualified participating organizations for each dog appearing to be a pit bull and owner team in their community who successfully complete the CGC program.
Dogs must be at least one year old
Dogs must be handles by their owners during the test
The Incentive Award is available for any dogs who appear to be pit bulls and their owners, not just those adopted from the participating shelter.
Each day, lives are enriched by the companionship and services dogs provide. Dogs appearing to be pit bulls can earn $1000 for not-for-profit organizations by winning an Animal Farm Foundation Achievement Award. To qualify, the winning dog and owner duo must work together to win hearts and open minds so that other dogs that are identified as pit bulls can be just dogs. This team is one that is out and about in the community making strides that promote understanding and acceptance of dogs that look like pit bulls.
SPAY/NEUTER GRANT PROGRAM
Animal welfare organizations best serve their communities when they develop strong partnerships within the community, utilizing each organization's strengths to deliver to every dog owner the opportunities for low-cost and accessible spay/neuter services. Most owners of dogs appearing to be pit bulls are just like the other dog owners - Given the opportunity, they will use accessible services to care for their pet. To encourage the development of a sustainable and accessible program, Animal Farm Foundation will reimburse qualifying spay/neuter programs up to $50 for the cost of each spay/neuter surgery for dogs appearing to be pit bulls.
ANIMAL FARM FOUNDATION FUNDS PIT BULL SPECIFIC PROGRAMS, NOT BECAUSE PIT BULLS ARE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DOGS, BUT BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT.
