When I heard about this upcoming event, I instantly smiled and wanted to get the word out as fast I could. From my friends at Gateway Pet Guardians:
At Gateway Pet Guardians, they dislike breed labeling. BUT, they LOVE blocky-headed, slobbery, excitable, wiggly-butts! Sometimes those dogs are known as pit bull terrier type dogs.
“October 28 is Pit Bull Awareness Day, and we want to show off our adoptable dogs! Some resemble pitties and some ARE pitties (DNA tested). We are placing them all around the metro area to spread the love and change minds!” says Jamie Case, Executive Director. Participating locations can be visited from 12-2pm on Saturday, October 28 to kiss a bull! Each location will have one of our adoptable pups and the opportunity to get an exclusive “Sleeps with Pit Bulls”
Kisses are free from any of our wiggly butts BUT they would love for you to share your kissing photos on social media and tag Gateway Pet Guardians! (Pit bulls are the best kissers if you didn’t know.) If you visit one of the locations, make sure to use the #GPGkissabull and check in when you post!
(Yes, yes there is a catch to get these awesome shirts). In order to receive one of these amazing t-shirts, you must sign up to become a GPG Giving Guardian at one of the sponsored locations.
