Woof, Woof!!

Some of you know Saturday, October 25, 2008 is Bully Awareness Day. A small group of breed enthusiasts have come together to put on the second annual Atlanta Bully Educational Rally in Atlanta's Perkerson park on October 25, 2008 from 1:00-5:00 pm. This rally is an educational event for current pit bull owners and the general public. Despite the media hype surrounding the breed, there are good, responsible owners out there, and we're ready to set the record straight! Here's what you can expect if you attend:

- There will be a CGC (Canine Good Citizen) evaluator on hand to show people what the CGC test is like
- They will have a chat about Breed Specific Legislation and backyard breeding
- Someone will speak about true APBT conformation
- Fulton County Animal Services will have a booth
- Best Friends will have a booth
- All or Nothing Pit Bull Rescue will have a booth
- K9 Rescue League will have a booth

They ask that you PLEASE leave your personal dog at home. There will be dogs at the event, but those dogs are up for adoption or are part of a demo.

Regardless of where you are located, please choose an activity to participate in on October 25, 2008 to promote and celebrate responsible pit bull ownership. It can be a breed education rally, a dog walk & wash, a pet parade or a candle light vigil. The possibilities are endless! Regardless of the activity you choose, please sign up to participate so people in your area know and can participate and promote responsible ownership with you. Please visit the Bless the Bullys website to sign up.
