This month's Rescue Roast partner, Players for Pits, started much like Grounds & Hounds itself: with a unique pairing. For us, it was a love of our rescue dogs and coffee that inspired us. For Players for Pits, it was the world of professional sports and rescue pups. Players for Pits founder Stephanie Paluch told us the incredible story of how they brought together athletes and animal rescue.Stephanie Paluch, Founder of Players for Pits:
When they post our dogs for adoption or to help us fundraise for one of our causes, it helps these dogs reach people we may not have been able to reach. Since we started the rescue in 2013, we have saved nearly 1500 pit bull type dogs. And while that is a huge accomplishment in itself, I am most proud of the work we do with our medical cases."
Utilizing the platforms of popular athletes, Players for Pits continues their amazing work of finding homes for some of the neediest pit bull type dogs. We here at Grounds & Hounds are incredibly honored to be partnered with them for Rescue Roast.

Every year millions of animals end up in shelters for one reason or another. Unfortunately, space is limited in these shelters and some dogs never get the chance to find a forever home. Furthermore, some of these animals require special attention that is hard to give in a shelter environment. But the good news is that you can help by becoming a dog foster parent!
