National Pit Bull Awareness Day 2010 – Training People for Pits Sake!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

With so many dog fighting cases pending in our local area, and the conviction of Michael Vick, the time could never be better for an event which educates the public and honors these unjustly maligned animals.

National Pit Bull Awareness Day is a concept created by a Tennessee pit bull rescue in 2007 with the intent of creating a national day on which pit bulls are celebrated versus demonized. In stark contrast to the daily abuse and victimization of these dogs, this day is intended to be a day to cherish these animals. The event has grown in support since it’s inception with 2008 being marked by 150 celebrations across the United States and even events as far away as Canada and Russia. read more
