National Pit Bull Awareness Day

Today is National Pit Bull Awareness Day. It started back in 2007 when a rescue group called Bless The Bullies created this holiday to help promote animal adoption and counteract the negative media attention that this breed endures.

Forced To Be Victims

Pit bulls find themselves constantly being put in the midst of dog fights. They are put into these situations to exploit their aggressiveness.

In truth, these dogs are just the same as any other. They want a home and a family to love them. It helps to be an experienced dog owner. However, with the right training and knowledge of the breed, pit bulls can fit into any family.

Celebrate The Breed

There will be many places around the country educating the public about this exquisite animal. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, there will be a special event called PittyPalooza to promote pit bull adoption and unite pit bull fans. In addition you will find many rescue groups having adoption days all over the U.S.
