The mission has expanded to be more proactive and innovative with efforts focused on the following programs.
Training: The Pit Sisters Mobile Training Program launched in 2015 to provide a way for families to be able to receive professional training for their pets, regardless of breed, where the dog came from or training issue. This program is proven to help keep dogs with their families and out of the shelters, which is crucial, as 48% of all shelter dogs come through the system through owner surrenders. Since 2015, over 150 dogs have been trained, free of charge, by certified positive reinforcement trainers. This program is offered as a life saving resource for; Jacksonville Animal Care & Protective Services, Clay County Animal Care and The Jacksonville Humane Society and is also offered in area shelters throughout Northeast FL. This program focuses on potty training and excessive barking, among other issues. A Pit Sisters canine aggression expert gives dogs with more serious issues additional assistance. Training is also about working with pet owners, as often times they cause issues unknowingly.
Community Engagement and Involvement: Pit Sisters believes in order to save homeless pets, more involvement and engagement from the entire community is needed. Pit Sisters continually works on collaborative relationships with animal shelters, rescues, businesses, government, etc. to breaks myths and educate entire communities.
