Resources for Owners and their Canine Companions

Dog owners continue to face challenges brought about by difficult economic times. For some, there are additional challenges posed by misinformation about and prejudice against certain breeds of dogs.

ROCCS is an initiative of Merit Pit Bull Foundation aimed at providing owners with resources that will allow them to keep their beloved pets rather than having to resort to surrendering them. This helps to preserve the human-canine bond while reducing the burden on shelters and rescues. 

All dogs that participate in the ROCCS program must be spayed/neutered. If the dog is not already altered, we will assist the owner in securing affordable spay/neuter services.


The resources provided to ROCCS clients will include:

  • Veterinary assistance 

  • Training 

  • Pet food and supplies

For needs that go beyond those of the dog, we will do our best to help owners locate and navigate third-party social service agencies. 



Please help us to keep dogs with the families that they know and love! We are in need of donations to establish a medical fund and we need new and gently used crates and dog kennels!
