What I am about to share with you is near and dear to my heart as well as the hundreds and thousands of fosters and volunteers trying to make a CHANGE in the community for the millions of animals that are euthanized every year, specifically the Pit Bull Type breeds.
We have an enormous problem with the overcrowding of shelters and the breed specific legislation that continues to make this problem almost unmanageable. These breeds are the most abused, overbreed and the most euthanized of any breed. Three strikes against them, the very moment they’re born. Of the 1.50 million dogs euthanized every year, Pit Type Breeds make up 40% of dogs euthanized!! They are the first to be chosen for death row when the shelter is overcrowded.
Yoga4Pawz has launched the FIRST EVER “Happy Hippo Farm”. Our goal is to purchase property throughout the US, have onsite caregivers & trainers so we can move these dogs from the overcrowded shelters,into family homes, train them and find furever homes. We have found our first Happy Hippo Farm just outside of Phoenix, Az in Seligman AZ where the weather is supportive of a facility where dogs can be free outdoors, have indoor shelter for sleeping and eating and staff a place to be housed onsite.
We are seeking to raise 180K to pay for the fist Happy Hippo Farm. Please join us in being a part of a solutions that can get many dogs from death row, into a home so that they can have an opportunity to live their fullest life!
