Shelter Dog Program

Our Shelter Dog Program

We at Mk9 know that most dogs do not do well in a shelter/kenneling atmospheres, without proper stimulation and every day socialization. Unfortunately with the massive overpopulation problem, strays and owner surrenders a great number of pit bull dogs end up in these situations. Shelter volunteers and staff are limited as is and find it very difficult to keep up with the attention that a dog needs to stay content while in the shelter.

We also know not everyone is able to foster or even adopt, so we have developed a program that will allow you to help better a life waiting for their family and make positive changes in our community.

We have a small group of volunteers going into specific shelters that we are working with. Our volunteers make sure their partner shelter dogs stay active and content as much as possible while they wait for their families to find them. While in our program, our volunteers are helping the shelter dogs get "home ready" by working on their leash manners, basic obedience, socialization skills and mind stimulation exercises.
Our volunteers make sure their partner shelter dog stays balanced and stimulated as they wait for their families to find them.

The pit bull shelter dogs we are working with will also come with a life time of guidance from Modified k9 for their new families.

If you would like to join us with this shelter program and would be interested in being paired up with a pit bull shelter dog please send an email through our CONTACT US page. Title message "Shelter Dog Volunteer"
