Today I would love to share a cause and organization that is near and dear to my heart.
The organization is called "Hello Bully" (I know, cute name right?).
They are a local non-profit who's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate,
and repair the reputation of the American Pit Bull Terrier.
I believe the Pit Bull is a wonderful breed with a hurt reputation.
It makes me sad that so many amazing dogs sit in shelters and often die there
because of the name of the breed.
I feel like it is wrong to stereotype and entire breed.
They are usually more known for the terrible dog fighting, than their
loving and loyal personalities.
I grew up with them and many of my family and friends are Pit Bull owners.
That is why, when my husband and I decided to get a dog,
we wanted to adopt a Pit Bull.
Hello Bully connected us with our local Humane Society and they introduced us to
"Mason" who we re-named "Bruce Springsteen".
They also connected us with an amazing training class for the Pit Bull Breed.
Bruce was very proud to have graduated.
Hello Bully has a number of programs geared toward helping Pit Bulls.
They have a "Pit Bull 101" educational presentation.
Their "Pit Fix Plus" program offers free spay/neuter and vaccines to
Pittsburgh area Pit Bulls.
"Chains for Change" offers humane, effective methods of training (positive reinforcement).
And of course they work hard to find homes for their "adopt-a-bulls".
Like this little lady ready to find a family...
Please take a look at the website and browse the details of what
they do and ways you can support them!
They also have a facebook page.
Right now, they are planning an annual Gala which raises money for the organization.
I am collecting raffle items (handmade items, gift certificates, etc), so if you
want to donate to help the cause, let me know :)
Thanks for reading, I shall leave you with photos of some of my other favorite Bullies...
Do you have a Pit Bull breed? Tell me about them!
