The Portland Pit Bull Project

Promoting responsible dog ownership

Mission Statement

The Portland Pit Bull Project is dedicated to raising awareness in the Portland, Oregon area, specifically for Pit Bulls, but also for Bully breeds in general. Our goal is to help the public better understand that the ever expanding group of dogs referred to as “pit bulls”, and the many breeds commonly mistaken for Pit Bulls, are just as capable of being safe and loyal family pets as any other dog. While we recognize that the goal of some breeders has been strength, tenacity, and confidence, we assert there is much more to these wonderful companion animals who can also exhibit the other fine qualities bred into them such as loyalty, playfulness and a loving nature when nurtured by responsible humans.

Very simply our mission reflects the latter part of the following quotation:

“We don’t need to ban them.  We don’t need to kill them.  We just need to educate the human.”
