I Believe I Can Fly

SIPP + Donate

Imagine a world where communities welcome dogs of all breeds…
A world where no dog is returned to the shelter because of lack of training, resources and support….
A world where dogs who started life as throw-aways become breed ambassadors…
Can you see it?
LARPBO can. And with your support we can make it a reality!
We’ve already transformed hundreds of lives through our low-cost training classes and socialization activities. We’ve created a vibrant, active community both in our local neighborhoods and on-line. And we’re changing minds about Pit Bulls across Southern California with “Tito’s Demo Crew”, an elite group of demonstration dogs trained through LARPBO that have captured hearts and minds at events like NKLA Adoption Events, Woofstock (Beverly Hills), Orange County Pet Expo, and La Crescenta Valley Fair.
To further our commitment to keeping dogs home and out of shelters, our Shelter Intervention & Prevention Program (“SIPP”) was established to:
  • Help intervene where it is deemed dog training would keep the owner from surrendering a pup.
  • Prevent dogs from being returned to the shelter.
  • Train shelter and rescue dogs in obedience exercises and exposing them to various environments so that they are better acclimated when in their new home.

The program is funded by organizations and individuals who want to help in LARPBO’s endeavor of keeping dogs home and out of shelters. Donors may donate directly to the program here.  The donor may also donate a class at $15 per voucher to a recipient of their choice. Alternatively, the donor can choose to let LARPBO or the shelter of their choice distribute the vouchers to individuals it deems meet the program’s purpose.
