Last Chance to Support Players for Pits!

April 05, 2021 2 min read

This is a quick reminder that there's only a little time left to support Players for Pits through the Rescue Roast Program. Until April 15th, 100% of the profits from Rescue Roast will benefit this amazing organization.

Their unique mission involves saving the underdogs: pit bull type dogs, particularly those with special needs. It's a fact that dogs identified as pit bulls spend longer at the rescue than their counterparts of other breeds. Add in a medical problem or behavioral issue to correct, and these pups could wait a very long time for their perfect forever families.

That's where Players for Pits comes in. They utilize the large media platforms of professional athletes to advertise for these pups, helping speed up their path to a forever family. Founded by Stephanie Paluch in 2013, she got the idea while working in the world of sports broadcasting and PR.

Stephanie saw that many professional athletes wanted to find ways to give back. Connecting that drive with her love of pups, especially pit bulls, she started Players for Pits. And the idea has been a hit: using the megaphone of professional athlete social media profiles, Players for Pits has helped rescue and re-home over 1,500 dogs.

But their work isn't as simple as connecting the dots. Players for Pits does both medical and behavioral rehabilitations. As with many of our Rescue Roast partners, veterinary bills can be the largest expense. The funds from Rescue Roast will help them cover their bills for veterinary care, training and supply fosters with what they need.

So let's use this last week to push our donations to new heights. Please pick up a bag of Rescue Roast and let's all help find these special needs pups the home they deserve.
