National Pit Bull Awareness Month 2018
Posted By SLCo Animal Services
September 28, 2018
October is not just about fall, spiced lattes and Halloween, it’s National Pit Bull Awareness month. National Pit Bull Awareness Day is celebrated on the last Saturday of October, though October has also been deemed the month for Pit Bull Awareness.
This year, October 27th, 2018, is officially National Pit Bull Awareness Day and there are events happening all over the country to celebrate and advocate for the American Pit Bull Terrier.
We here at Salt Lake County Animal Services and the Salt Lake County Pit Crew love to advocate, celebrate and educate about “Pit Bulls” every day but we have some extra celebrations planned to celebrate our stout, short haired friends and their guardians this month which will be listed at the bottom.
Pit Bulls are amazing dogs! They are eager to please, affectionate, joy-inducing dogs who have mad athletic skills, huge personalities, big grins and a tail that may as well be driven by a motor.
We believe that behind every good pit bull is a dedicated and outstanding advocate taking every opportunity to show off this incredible breed and help break stereotypes and correct the many myths surrounding these blocky headed friends.
The goal of National Pit Bull Awareness is exactly that- Awareness, so start spreading the love!
Here are a few suggestions:
1. Adopt! For the month of October Salt Lake County Animal Services will have $40 adoptions on all Pit Bull type dogs that are 6 months of age or older.
2. Get involved! Cannot take in a pet of your own? Volunteering and fostering is a wonderful way to make a difference for an animal in need. www.adoptutahpets.com
3. Post stories and cute pictures on Facebook and tag them #pitbull
4.Are you on Instagram? Search #nationalpitbullawarenessmonth and join in the love.
5.Put an event together yourself. Many shelters need donations. Take a look at our Amazon wish list at http://amzn.to/2fvMS4i
6. Join our Facebook page Salt Lake County Pit Crew. You can see the many dogs looking for adoption, join in on our events and help us spread the word.
Salt Lake County Animal Services will be offering $40 adoptions for our Pit Bulls 6 months of age or older for the month of October! This includes their spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip!
We hope you will join us for our scheduled events for National Pit Bull Awareness Month.
