Let’s Lick Discrimination!


My Pit Bull is Family is a 501c-3 non-profit organization based in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a mission to keep families and their canine companions together through ending housing and insurance discrimination. My Pit Bull is Family manages the nation’s largest database of dog inclusive rentals along with a robust Community Partner database – through these two programs we are able to provide services to families in need and keep pets at home.

Our team focuses on having conversations with property management companies, conducting pet policy research studies, building relationships in the community and providing resources to keep families together.

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!
