We are pleased to introduce an important new program. The CARE Pitty Resource Center (The P.R.C.), created by CARE of South Bend, is an education, outreach and intervention program for the local community serving “pit bull” dogs. This program addresses the high rates of homelessness, abuse and euthanasia of “pit bull” dogs occurring in South Bend/St. Joseph County.
This program provides the tools that promote responsible ownership. Our goal is to educate the community and provide services and resources that not only protect the dogs in our community but the families that love them.
The P.R.C. supports owners of “pit bull” dogs and provides low-cost services including: vaccinations, spay/neuter, micro-chipping, flea and tick preventative, training advice and supplies.
The P.R.C. also partners with local rescue groups in the area to provide a full circle of compassion and assistance for “pit bull” dogs. Together we are identifying “pit bull” dog ambassadors in our community to create a brighter future for them.
Over the next couple months we will be rolling out this program on an agency by agency basis.
