Needed Housing Help

"I used the My Pit Bull is Family site to find resources when I was searching for a home to rent. The site suggests getting renter's insurance and lists companies that will cover it. These resources helped me to get inexpensive pet liability insurance which was part of the long, annoying process of keeping my dog.
I'm so thankful I found this site. If not for anything else, it helped me realize that there are many other people who go through the same struggles I do to keep their dogs. My pit bull is family and she's also my best friend. Thank you and keep up the great work!"

Thank You

"This is by far the most helpful site I've seen. My pittie baby is my kid and my life revolves around my furkids. Thank you!"

Searching for Housing

"I cannot thank you enough for providing the housing database.
I am relocating from Florida to California with my bully mix (and his kitty sister).
I'll be thousands of miles from family to help. I live at risk today in a complex that technically bans pitbulls but looks the other way. I always had family as back up but now, I'll be alone thousands of miles away and I have been so stressed about it I can't even tell you.
Then I found your website, and it pointed me to a complex that actually SAYS all breeds are welcome. IN WRITING. It's amazing. A HUGE weight has been lifted.

From the bottom of my heart (and Chance's!) thank you!"
