National Pit Bull Awareness Day (and Month) was established in 2007 as a nationwide effort to bring positive awareness and attention to Pit Bulls and their responsible owners.
So, what can you, as a Pit Bull advocate, do to raise awareness? The founder of National Pit Bull Awareness Day offers the following advice:
“While we can’t all be on television educating about our dogs, we all can make a difference in our own way. We all can and should play a part in correcting false information and changing the perception of these incredible dogs. We are their voice, and they are depending on us to educate the public (not only about the breed in general, but with respect to responsible ownership practices), to dispel the false information out there, and to restore their reputation as a great American icon. Leading by example is a great place to start!”
So, if you’re a pit bull owner, be an ambassador for the breed! At any and every opportunity – inform and educate. Each day this month, we’ll be posting on our FaceBook page images, facts, and information that you can share with family and and friends to help do just that.
National Pit Bull Awareness Day is October 27, 2018! How will YOU celebrate this important day?
Want to know how your support makes a difference? Check out this update!
Because of your support this summer, we have great news to share about the four pups who had medical needs in our last campaign:
After being rescued from a creepy backyard breeder, followed by Entropion eye surgery, these two characters – Einstein & Ronnie – have been adopted together like the two peas-in-a-pod that they are! They’re probably finishing each other’s sentences as they settle into their new life of happiness.
Prince is now an official “tripod” after his surgery and is so much happier, healthier, and has a home to call his own! He’s now being loved like he should.
And, Patches is finally packing on the much needed pounds and looking good. She doesn’t have the pizza place on speed dial but she does have a furever family that will make sure she never has to miss a meal or snack again!
Thank you so much for your support and for caring about these pets in need – we truly cannot do it without YOU!
