ANIMAL FARM FOUNDATION, INC., located in Dutchess County, NY, has been rescuing and rehoming animals since the mid-1980s.  The organization currently dedicates its resources to securing equal treatment and opportunity for “pit bull” dogs.  Whether called a “pit bull” due to documented pedigree or on the basis of physical appearance, recognizing that these dogs are individuals for whom we are responsible is an integral step toward a compassionate future for all dogs.
