In memory of Marbeth Foster

Marbeth Foster, the mother of Sula Foundation founder Ken Foster, passed away on March 20 following an extended battle with aplastic anemia. Like most pit bull grandmothers, Marbeth was somewhat skeptical at first, but quickly became a fierce defender of the breed. Donations in her name may be made by clicking on the Donation button to the right. You may write in a brief message on the form under "purpose". Donations may also be made by mail to The Sula Foundation, PO Box 3780, New Orleans, LA 70117.

The Sula Foundation in the news

Sunday March 23rd at 10pm, WWL will feature the Sula Foundation as part of a report on dognappers in New Orleans. (We'll post a link after the story runs.) A similar story on pit bull thefts ran last Thursday in the Times-Picayune. WDSU also featured a report on the threat responsible pit bull owners face from criminals who view their dog as a potential moneymaker.

The Sula Foundation will be participating April 6th in the Louisiana SPCA's Dog Day Afternoon; you can contribute or join our team at this link.

On April 27th we'll be tossing out the ball at Zephyr Field for Bark in the Park.

And we'll be announcing our April clinic dates soon! See photos of our first clinic by clicking here!

Pit bull abductions in Mid City

Originally uploaded by kfoz
There have been a series of pit bull abductions in Mid City this week. This photo is Suzie, who is less than a year old, and was taken from her yard on March 4th. Her owners miss her very much and are worried about her safety.

If you have a pit bull or pit mix, please don't leave them outside without supervision. In at least one case this week, a seven foot fence did nothing to prevent the dogs from being stolen.

UPDATE: Suzie has been recovered!!

On Sunday April 27th, we'll be throwing out the first ball of the day at Zephyr Field.

We are offering free spay and neuter to New Orleans pit bulls. For more information contact or call 324-9233.

And we are planning for a 2009 calendar of New Orleans pit bulls, so tell your favorite pit to start practicing their pose. But they're already doing that, aren't they?

Let us know if you would like to contribute or volunteer.
