Help Us, Help Them

A Rotta Love Plus welcomes - in fact, relies on - tax-deductible donations and items that sustain our program dogs and community efforts. Below you will find a list of items of which ARLP is currently in need (many of which can be new or gently used). Many of the items can be found on our Amazon Wish List, or you can find them at your favorite retailer and send them to 1710 Douglas Drive, Golden Valley MN 55422 or bring them to an adoption day or awareness event. If you have any questions about donating items, please contact

Thank you for your generosity!

  • Food

Get Your Fix!

ARLP's spay/neuter/vaccination assistance program hosts Get Your Fix! fairs during the summer months. Many items are needed to ensure the success of this high-impact effort.

ARLP volunteers and their therapy-registered Rottweilers and pit bulls visit youth in crisis to lead discussions that relate jointly to animal and human welfare. At the end of each session, the youth have their photograph taken with one of the dogs and the photo is given to the youth as a keepsake.

Rott n' Pit Ed

Rott n' Pit Ed is a free eight-week basic obedience class for pit bulls and Rottweilers who are being fostered by an ARLP volunteer, or who have ‘graduated’ the foster program and been adopted.  Rottweilers and pit bulls who are not ARLP alumni may enroll in the class for a set program donation.
