In the United States, pit bulls are underdogs. Misrepresented by the media and associated with fighting and aggressive behavior, these loving family dogs are the subject of breed bans and are often euthanized in shelters. The stigma surrounding pit bull ownership is currently unmatched by other breeds and Even Chance seeks to provide education and advocacy while running a rescue that finds homes for these loyal dogs.
All artists involved in Art For Pitties has a pit bull as a companion animal or is an advocate for the breed. They are working together to raise much needed funds for costs associated with medical needs, spay and neuter procedures, food, crates, heartworm preventatives and training classes as well as literature needed for outreach programs and events.
The Art For Pitties blog will feature the initiative’s mission to educate the public on the plight of the pit bull and to create an awareness of this through art.
