It’s our favorite time of year! March is Pit Bull Celebration Month, and there are many ways we are raising awareness for the misunderstood breed. Through March, we are offering 50% off adoption fees for dogs who are 40+lbs! Also during March, we are offering reduced fees at our offsite vaccine clinics for Pit Bull-type dogs.
Did you know, the “Pit Bull” isn’t actually a real breed at all? Pit Bull is a very common name for a type of dog that fits a type of look. The more formal breeds that people consider to be Pit Bulls include the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, American Bully, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the American Bulldog is also sometimes included. Just because they have a certain look to them, people think they will act a certain way. We know first-hand that is not the case. Recently, you might have heard we stopped breed-labeling our adoptable dogs. Every homeless dog should have the same chance of finding a home as the next, and boy, has this worked out great. By not breed-labeling any of our dogs, they are treated as equals. No matter how big or how small!
To help us raise awareness and celebrate these awesome dogs, we are having our annual St. Pitty’s Day bar crawl on Saturday, March 10th, through downtown Media staring Arne 12:30pm. Proceeds from that day will benefit our low-cost spay/neuter program for owned Pit Bull dogs called Fix-a-Bull to help reduce unwanted litters. By purchasing your limited-edition 2018 St. Pitty’s Day shirt, which is to ur ticket to all of the drink specials happening that day, you’re supporting our efforts to reduce the number of Pit Bulls in shelters.
As we continue celebrating all things Pit Bull, on Sunday, March 11th, we are going to have family day with a bake sale, BBQ, Pitty Kissing Booth, limited-edition 2018 St. Pitty’s Day t-shirts, Stella & Dot vendor and so much more all in the name of saving lives! These proceeds also support our Fix-a-Bull Program.
These little mixed breed puppies pictured above, will be available on March 7th. As with all of our pets, upon adoption, they will be fixed, microchipped and have their necessary vaccinations. Here, you can find our requirements for adoption!
We are here to give voice to the voiceless, so help us celebrate how wonderful misunderstood dogs are!
