October 25th is National Pit Bull Awareness Day, and we'll be doing a visibility event on Saturday morning.
What: Pit Bull Awareness Walk through the French Quarter
When: Saturday October 25th at 10:30am
Where: We'll meet near the base of Canal Street at the pedestrian entrance to the Ferry
Why: To show people what responsible pit bull owners look like
Please bring your dog if you feel he or she is up to it, but remember that we'll be walking through the Quarter, which means lots of other people, dogs, horses, noise, traffic, etc. We want to show our dogs in the best possible light, so if your dog doesn't like crowds, consider his/her feelings. But, you can still join the walk, even without a dog. Wear a t-shirt, make a sign. We'll have Sula shirts at a discount for anyone who doesn't already have a pit bull themed wardrobe.
If you plan on coming, please respond to this email so that we know how many to expect.
Also, we'll be offering petit fours and cookies along with pit bull facts at various locations in town, including Octavia Books and Neophobia furniture store. The LA-SPCA will be having an adoption day at Canine Culture.
And, we're still looking for some volunteers with the following events:
Jefferson Pet Fest, Sunday Nov. 2
NOLA Bookfair, Saturday Nov. 15
