CrossFit Longmont is proud to support WOD For Dogs in the 3rd annual fundraiser and we look forward to a big showing again this year. WOD for Dogs is a national workout to raise money for improving the lives of homeless dogs. The Wallace the Pit Bull Foundation is partnering with gyms and rescue organizations across the country in order to raise money, educate, and encourage the adoption of amazing dogs waiting for a home to call their own. Your donations directly help local organizations making a difference within the community. We are partnering with ColoRADogs again this year. Your donations will be split between ColoRADogs and The Wallace the Pitbull Foundation.
The workout will take place on September 26th 2015 between 10:30 am and 1 pm. There is a suggested donation of $25.

This year we are partnering with ColoRADogs.
ColoRADogs is a Colorado front range based 501C3 non--profit whose mission is to educate about responsible ownership, provide resources for the community, advocate for breed neutral laws, and rescue some dogs along the way.
While we consider ourselves an all--breed rescue, we focus on those crazy blockheads who are labeled as “pit bulls.” Our dogs come primarily from local Colorado shelters and large--scale fight bust/cruelty cases. We strongly feel that the motto, “Seeing is believing,” is what changes hearts and minds. There is no better witness to the fact that pit bulls are just dogs than the dogs themselves.
We believe that the way to reduce euthanasia is not through catchy phrases, but rather a measured and community--tailored approach to keeping dogs out of the shelters in the first place. We work to help provide solutions for owners and their dogs that are on the edge of relinquishment. We educate on responsible ownership of dogs and effective responses to problems.
We are working in communities to repeal breed--specific legislation (BSL) and replace those laws with breed--neutral ones while changing the dialogue so the general public is open to our message that all dogs deserve to be included in our homes and neighborhoods.
We live by our belief that: “Responsible Ownership is Not Breed Specific.”
