Mission & Vision
BADRAP was formed in 1999 to tackle the difficult issues that had been bringing suffering and early death to San Francisco bay area pit bull type dogs. We soon developed into a nationally recognized resource for both dog owners and shelters, offering desirable pets for adopters, training classes for dog owners and presentations and professional consultations to animal welfare leaders around the country.
TOYS TO SUPPORT CAUSES & INITIATIVES THAT ARE NEAR & DEAR TO HUGGLEHOUNDS®
For the entire year of 2024, we are supporting BadRap and their efforts to bring light to a stigmatized breed with our Jonny Justice Knottie®! Jonny Justice was a celebrated trailblazer who won the world's heart after surviving Bad Newz Kennels, the Virginia dog fighting ring run by then-NFL quarterback Michael Vick. Jonny was seized by federal authorities in 2007 along with 50 other dogs and held as evidence while a federal judge decided their fate. His good nature earned him a second chance and we was transfered to the care of BadRap. Jonny appeared in dozens of news stories and went on to earn his Canine Good Citizen certification (CGC) and his American Temperament Test title (TT). Jonny's life work and loving example helped erase tired stigmas about 'pit bulls' and inspired a revolution in the way future cruelty victims are treated.
