The Stand Up for Pits Foundation is sponsoring a One million pibble march on Washington, D.C. May 3, 2014. This is a petition, donation and human marching event for pit bulls, unfortunately dogs will not be marching to the Capitol. The march is an effort to create safe and humane communities for humans and pets, to give millions of voiceless victims a voice and by doing so end discrimination and abuse.
Stand Up for Pits was founded by comedian Rebecca Corry after adopting a pit bull named Angel. When Rebecca found her Angel was a former bait dog with a broken tail, she had been over bred, chemically burned down her back and had her ears and tongue brutally cut in a non-medical way but still had a smile on her face and nothing but love to give. Angel is the inspiration for the march on D.C. to bring awareness about breed specific legislation, dog fighting and the kind nature of the pit bull breed.
The founder’s purpose, “Rebecca believes that through laughter, positive images and education that this beautiful breed will one day no longer be the target of discrimination, abuse and hate. Stand Up For Pits is an event everyone (even non-dog owners) can enjoy with music, videos, interviews and comedy. Stand Up For Pits has raised thousands for non-profit rescues across the nation. The violent epidemic that occurs daily in this country against this breed is, as a society, ALL of our problem. The young men (average age 13-21) committing heinous acts against these voiceless victims will likely (and most often DO) go on to commit crimes against humanity. Pit Bull Terriers are gentle, loving and loyal and they need our help now, more than ever before. With educational programs and adequate funding we can end the senseless abuse and create safe and humane communities for humans and pets. Stand Up For Pits believes it is our obligation to respect and protect the dogs we share this planet with.”
