Redmond shelter marks Pit Bull Awareness Month

Remember the tragic case of Chance, the dog who was severely injured and taken in by BrightSide Animal Center in July? Thankfully, he now is recovering well and healing. Chance is one of the sweetest, friendliest, happiest dogs you can meet. And he is a pit bull mix. Who could be a better ambassador for the breed?

Chance, a pit bull mix, reminds us dogs of this strong breed can be friendly, people-loving companions.

October is national Pit Bull Awareness Month. In support of Chance and all the pit bulls and bully breeds that wind up at shelters, BrightSide Animal Center is having a "Pit Stop" to promote better understanding of pit bulls.

Simply go to any of BrightSide's retail partners, below, in October and pick up a brochure on understanding pit bulls.  While you're there, drop in a donation in support of local pit bulls like Chance. Consider adopting one.

Make a "Pit Stop" at these participating retailers to learn more about the breed and donate to our cause:
