The Stand Up For Pits Foundation is thrilled to announce we will be giving away another $10,000.00 in ANGEL grants to 5 nonprofits in the amount of $2000.00 each and will announce the recipients on December 15th!

ANGEL grant recipients must be publicly nominated. Anyone can nominate, including nonprofits themselves. Simply post the attached photo of Angel and explain why you’re nominating them and what their mission is. Please be sure to tag the SUFP Foundation and we will do our best to repost all the nominees. This is important because by tagging and us sharing, it helps raise awareness about hard working nonprofits people may not know about. Once publicly nominated, the nominated nonprofit must go to standupforpits.us, fill out and submit the online SUFP grant application form. PLEASE READ the requirements thoroughly before submitting.

SUFP would prefer to give grants to smaller pit bull “type” dog nonprofits doing great work who don’t have sponsors, celebrity backing, large donors and need funds and exposure. SUFP has helped grow nonprofit rescue groups nationwide for 8 years. SUFP loves learning about nonprofits doing great things and supporting their efforts. We encourage you all to nominate groups who go beyond rescue and focus on fixing problems. Groups with educational programs, homeless outreach, spay and neuter clinics, prevention initiatives etc. We want to hear all about the work they’re doing and share it with others!

We look forward to sharing and learning about nonprofits in communities around the country working hard to end abuse, discrimination and save lives. We’re are even more excited to provide funds needed to support their missions.

Starting today, please nominate any and all nonprofits you feel qualify! You can nominate as many as you like but please be sure to inform them that they are required to fill out the SUFP grant form and agree to terms in order to be considered. All nominations need to be posted and grant applications submitted by Dec 14th. THANK YOU!!!

  2. I would like to nominate Loveabull Rescue Society out of BC Canada. They are a small nonprofit Bully breed rescue. They have taken on some major medical cases. They do local surrenders and focus on areas that have BSL and pull dogs that are in very close to being euthanized. They focused on Montreal when then need was great and now helping Ontario with some wonderful dogs that deserve the 2nd chance. Manitobia as well has been able to receive help with Bully Breeds. They are a small crew that are working as hard as they can to do things right and to learn all they can to benefit the breed

    I would like to nominate Grass Roots Rescue in Sussex County, Delaware. Grass Roots likes to refer to themselves as the “Hot Mess Express” because they love the underdog. From what I have seen, they choose their dogs by the look in their eyes, they can see the soul of the dog and can know that no matter what happens, the dog will feel love with them whether it is for years or days. The size of their heart is amazing to observe. I’m a volunteer but only on the edges, I dont know that I could handle what the Karli and the others go through. I am often in awe of them. I believe Grass Roots Rescue would definitely put any donation received to good use for the Hot Mess Express.

    I would like to nominate Grace’s pit bull rescue in Temecula, CA. Emily, the founder of the rescue, is a one women show. She works full time & lives with her parents so she can run a non profit rescue. She named the rescue after her first pit bull Hrace, she saw how great the breed is and how much help they need. She is very new to the rescue world, but is trying to help every chance she gets. She only has a handful of dogs in her rescue. She fosters some and has a couple other foster who volunteer for her. I’m a current foster for Emily & I’m now adopting the dog I was fostering through her. This rescue is doing it all alone with very very small help from donations. For the most part she pays out of pocket. I would love to see this rescue get help!! She is so devoted to these dogs. She rescued a pit just recent who was left at the shelter to die alone. She took the dog knowing the dog only had a day or two just so the dog wouldn’t have to die alone. Please thinking about helping this rescue out💖

  11. I would like to nominate “805 Bully Friends and Family” for the 2018 angel grant. This Non profit is advocating for responsible ownership of the Bully breeds in Ventura County.

  12. I would like to nominate All for Love Animal Rescue.

    All For Love Animal Rescue (AFLAR), is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit all-volunteer animal rescue group, dedicated to saving abandoned animals from shelters in Southern California. We are an all-breed rescue, but focus on dogs in the most need, primarily Pit Bulls, followed by seniors, Chihuahuas, pregnant dogs and those needing medical care or surgery. We rescue, rehabilitate, and find forever homes through adoption events, networking, and community outreach. We advocate for animal welfare, affordable spay and neuter programs, and ending backyard breeding. Through education, we strive to restore the positive image of the American Pit Bull Terrier, as the loving family dog it truly is. We depend 100% on charitable donations to rescue, board, vet, train, and provide medical care, for all of our dogs.
