Pit Bull Proud

The Pit Bull Proud adoption program was created in 2014 to increase the number of Pit Bulls adopted into loving, forever homes. Pit Bull type dogs make up 45% of the homeless and neglected dogs brought into MADACC each year.

In 2018, we revamped the program. Instead of subsidizing adoption fees, we will now provide our pit bulls with a welcome home kit to take home with them to their new family! The kit includes an easy walk harness, toys, and our new Pit Bull Proud sticker and bandanna. In addition to this, we run an awareness campaign from June to October to showcase our pit bull pride and raise awareness for these dogs. This campaign culminates with our Annual Pit Bull Awareness Day towards the end of October.

We want to give a special thank you to Pet Supplies Plus Greenfield for discounting items to help make this kit possible!

 Over 550 Pit Bulls have been adopted via the Pit Bull Proud Program since 2014.

  • 2014114 Pit Bull adoptions were subsidized by Friends of MADACC
  • 2015187 Pit Bull adoptions were subsidized by Friends of MADACC
  • 2016 – 137 Pit Bull adoptions were subsidized by Friends of MADACC
  • 2017 – 119 Pit Bull adoptions were subsidized by Friends of MADACC
