Angel South Central Shelter July 2007
Angel endured chemical burn that was likely battery acid July 2007
Angel was found running down the street in South Central Los Angeles and picked up by animal control. Her ears had been home cropped with scissors or razor blades, battery acid poured on her back, tail broken, used as a bait dog and over bred. Angel is the inspiration and THE reason Stand Up For Pits exists as well as the reason the ‘One Million PIBBLE March On Washington DC’ is happening. Angel’s story and remarkable spirit changed the life of Comedian/Actress Rebecca Corry and she continues to change the lives of every person who meets her or learns her story from around the world. Rebecca believes that through laughter, positive images and education that this beautiful breed will one day no longer be the target of discrimination, abuse and hate. Stand Up For Pits is an event everyone (even non-dog owners) can enjoy with music, videos, interviews and comedy. Stand Up For Pits has raised thousands for non-profit rescues across the nation. The violent epidemic that occurs daily in this country against this breed is, as a society, ALL of our problem. The young men (average age 13-21) committing heinous acts against these voiceless victims will likely (and most often DO) go on to commit crimes against humanity. Pit Bull Terriers are gentle, loving and loyal and they need our help now, more than ever before. With educational programs and adequate funding we can end the senseless abuse and create safe and humane communities for humans and pets. Stand Up For Pits believes it is our obligation to respect and protect the dogs we share this planet with. Dogs (including Pits) serve us in many vital capacities. As seeing eye dogs, military PTSD dogs, search and rescue dogs, drug sniffing, bomb sniffing, police dogs, military dogs, seizure alert dogs, hearing impaired dogs, therapy dogs, service dogs and ESA’s (Emotional Support Animals) to name a few. By coming to and supporting Stand Up For Pits, you are contributing to make communities safer for humans and pets alike. Come laugh, save lives and Stand Up For Pits!
