Stand Up For Pits Events

Many people who regularly attend Stand Up For Pits and support the cause don’t even have pit bull type dogs or in some cases, pets of any kind. We love this because it shows how much people understand that abuse and discrimination is wrong. Whether you have two legs or four, it is wrong and it must end. To ban dogs because of what they look like and condone the genocide of innocent beings is a direct reflection of our society and a terrifying one at that. Historically, this kind of thinking is far more dangerous than any dog of any kind could ever be. The perpetuation of fear based ignorance is intolerable and shameful and it must end. Those who abuse animals will likely and most often time do go on to commit crimes against humans. If we want safer and more humane communities for humans and pets then we ALL must take action and since pit bull type dogs are the most abused dogs, lets start there.

We must always remember that none of this would have happened without a beautiful rescued hippo by the name of Angel.  She was, is and will always be the inspiration behind these events and all the Stand Up For Pits Foundation does. She may no longer be with us physically, she is still very much alive in the hearts and minds of all the people who attend and the dogs who get helped and saved because she lived. Please tell everyone you know about these shows. Encourage people in and outside of the animal community to attend. You’re welcome to print out and and distribute the event posters and send people to standupforpits.us so they can learn more. Inherently good lives depending on it.
