We’re happy to announce New York Bully Crew as the recipient of a Healthy Paws Every Quote Gives Hope grant! The Long Island-based group was founded in 2010, specializing in pit bull rescue. New York Bully Crew also works to educate the public about pit bulls, including the horrific abuse the breed often faces and banishing myths surrounding the dogs.

“At no fault of their own, these loving, intelligent, athletic and incredibly loyal dogs are being prosecuted by the masses, when the real culprits are the people who put them in these horrible situations,” says NYBC. “[The] horrific “sport” [of dogfighting] can alter a dog’s wonderful temperament into a fearful, scarred, possibly aggressive animal that can be viewed as a danger and threat to society.”

Several common myths about pit bulls include the claim that the animals’ jaws are somehow stronger or can “lock” in place, which is wholly untrue. “We found that the American Pit Bull Terriers did not have nay unique mechanism that would allow these dogs to lock their jaws,” says Dr. I. Lehr Brisbin from the University of Georgia.

The $500 Every Quote Gives Hope grant will help feed the 44 animals currently at the NYBC shelter for one week. “In addition to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing this misunderstood and beloved breed, NYBC prides itself on promoting responsible pet ownership, the importance of spaying/neutering pets and the fight against animal cruelty and abuse,” says Carla Murino Morhan, a volunteer at the shelter. “Thank you for the much needed funds! Our pups thank you too.”

Healthy Paws’ Every Quote Gives Hope program is funded by pet parents who get pet insurance quotes through our website. For every quote given, Healthy Paws donates to a homeless pet’s medical care. We provide cash grants to companion animal shelters and organizations, specifically for life-saving vaccines, surgeries, spay/neuter programs, and other medical treatments.
