October is Pit Bull Awareness MONTH!

At the suggestion of a friend, I have chosen to memorialize today — what would have been Tiffin’s 13th birthday — with the announcement of a celebration!

In memory of Tiffin, I wanted to do something special to pay tribute to the incredible creature who captured my heart and inspired me to work so hard to change the perceptions of the American Pit Bull Terrier. I want his legacy to live on through all those who love the breed and work hard every single day to bring positive awareness to them, as well as everyone touched by the love of and for a “pit bull.” I can think of no better way to honor the life of my incredible companion, the dog who inspired a love and devotion that will go on as long as his memory and his pawprints are on my heart.

Bless the Bullys is proud to announce this year’s Pit Bull Awareness day is Saturday, October 22, 2011.

But we’re not stopping there…!

As part of our National Pit Bull Awareness Campaign, starting in 2011, Bless the Bullys has designated October as Pit Bull Awareness Month in appreciation of and devotion to our incredible canine companions!

Have no doubt…Pit Bull Awareness Day is very much alive and well thanks to so many breed advocates and fanciers across the country. However, extending the National Pit Bull Awareness celebration to an entire month is a great opportunity for shelters, breed clubs, and rescue organizations to spotlight the breed with adoption, education, and responsible ownership events in multiple communities and venues!

Tiffin inspired me to create a national day of awareness and appreciation for the American Pit Bull Terrier. You can help Tiffin’s legacy continue by keeping the spirit of the National Pit Bull Awareness Campaign in your heart in October and every day!

Through education and compassion, we will bring about a positive change for these incredible dogs!

  1. Awesome Jo! Thanks for encouraging the idea! 🙂

  2. I LOVE IT!!! We actually celebrated all month last year by scheduling events such as K9’s for a Cure (in Dunbar WV where pit bulls are discriminated against), several adoption events and a training/education event scattered throughout the month! Every event was a promotion of NPBAD…this year will be a display of honor for a dog that SO many people owe homage to, whether they know it or not!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIFFIN! Hugs to you Jodi and Harlan!

  3. Thank you, Laurie!! Tiffin would love that! xoxo

  4. What a fantastic tribute to Tiffin, Jodi! We will honor all month with Pride & remembrance [hugs]
