The FWPBC Board of Directors

 

The Fort Wayne Pit Bull Coalition Board of Directors is made up of amazing individuals who dedicate their time and lives to the mission and success of the FWPBC.  Board Positions are not paid, and everyone on this page volunteers all of their time.  We are very lucky to have individuals from all types of backgrounds and interests, one of those interests is, of course, supporting the furtherance of the pit bull mission.  Education, spay and neuter, and rescue are all at the center of our hearts.
