(MABB) invite all animal lovers to attend “Give Pits a Chance” on Saturday, October 9, 2010at Du Burns Arena from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free to the public; however dogs are not permitted. Adoptable pit bulls from local rescue groups will be available at the event.

The goal of the event is to spread awareness of the plight of pit bulls, to transform negative stereotypes and misconceptions about the breed, and to help support local shelters and pit bull friendly rescue groups.

The event will feature several local bully breed rescue groups, information and facts regarding the true temperament of the breed, training tips and agility demonstrations, children’s activities, raffles, information on volunteer opportunities, the Pin-ups for Pit Bulls models and more.

BAWA consists of the Maryland SPCA, Baltimore Humane Society and Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter and Baltimore City Animal Control. The alliance works together to improve the well-being of animals in our community. Our joint efforts have included activities such as adoption events, spaying and neutering animals and transporting animals in need from one shelter to another so that fewer pets are euthanized. The Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance’s mission is to work together to save animals’ lives.
MidAtlanticBullyBuddies, Inc. is a volunteer run dog rescue. They focus on the rescue, adoption and education of dogs that fit the general term “pit bull” along with “bully breed” mixes. Their mission is to find forever homes for bully breeds of sound temperament while educating the public about the breed.
