As Pitbull lovers and advocates are aware, around the October 26th date each year is slated as Pitbull Awareness Day. Many rescue organizations across the country are planning to get the word out about the dogs that they know and believe in.
As more positive news stories come across the ticker, it is hoped that people will become more loving and accepting of a breed that has a terrible history – much due to the human influence that has bred and used these dogs for negative reasons. It is the canines that have suffered over the years due to this type of abusive relationship with some very cruel human beings.
One organization in the news is The Humane Society of Clarksville – Montgomery County in Clarksville, Tennessee. This group is hosting their very first annual Pitbull Awareness Day at Rural King located at 1141 Fort Campbell Boulevard in Clarksville from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. this coming Saturday.
At the event, Humane Society personnel will be handing out FREE spay/neuter vouchers for Pitbulls and Pitbull mixes. They will also host a “Dress Your Bully” costume contest that is right in line for the Halloween weekend. The grand prizes will be super as two separate dogs will win the chance for their photo to appear on two billboards located right in Clarksville. The dogs will also receive a basket full of goodies. Those that would like to enter this contest simply have to make a donation.
The Pits are invited, but must be crowd friendly. Registration for this contest will end at 3:00 p.m. and the winners will be announced by 3:45. If the dogs are worn out, that is okay, too, because they need not be present to win the fabulous prizes offered up. Besides that, photos will have been taken when the dog is entered courtesy of Jordan Larissa Photography. You can even purchase the photos if you like! Other dog breeds are able to attend, but the contest is simply for Pitbull and Pitbull mixes.
A table filled will FREE doggie treat bags will be available. Of course there will also be literature on the Amazing Pitbull breed.
As more groups and individuals embrace the fact that these dogs are not born bad, they are simply bred bad by some very bad people, they may want to consider that these dogs simply desire love, too. As Pitbull advocates know, most Pitbulls are NOT dangerous, people are.
Stop by and check out the Pitbulls in your area. There will certainly be displays of just how great these dogs can be by the organizations that believe in them!
