I recently went to the event “Pancakes For Pitties”¬†presented by Hug-A-Bull.com It was a fundraiser, and pancakes by donations, there were people and their pitties there and also shirts, stickers and other fun things like that for sale. People and their pitties came and there was poster boards of all the pit bulls they had for adoption and for fostering and interesting facts and stories. Check out Hug-A-Bull.com, they have so many dogs available for fostering and adoption and need your help, below, there are pictures from the event and myself, enjoy!

In the Vancouver Sun there was an article written titled “Certain dogs and owners combine for violence” and underneath it, it read “Pit bulls, Rottweilers and dog-wolf hybrids are responsible for most attacks – so why aren’t they more restricted?” Basically Stephen Hume, the writer who wrote the article, is an uneducated, biased and ignorant. He wrote “Pit bulls, Rottweilers and wolf crosses are the bazookas of the dog world. Perfectly safe as long as they don’t go off;¬†devastatingly lethal when they do. And nobody, least of all their owners, seems to be able to predict when they will go off.” Really? Another article was published in the Vancouver Sun in response to the article written by Hume, Kathy Powelson who is with Paws for Hope Animal Foundation wrote the response article. To what he said that I stated above, she wrote “Huh? This is an issue of responsible pet¬†guardianship, not inherently aggressive breeds” I was pleased to read her response to Hume’s previous article. She also said how the Paws for Hope Animal Foundation and Hug-A-Bull have partnered together to bring Vancouver a documentary called “Beyond The Myth” There will also be a panel of experts to discuss issues such as dangerous dogs, breed bans and responsible pet ownership. They’re screening the documentary at the Vancity Theater on October 20th and 28th at 2pm. I’m excited to attend this screening and meeting others who have the same passion to pit bulls and other misunderstood breeds.

Hug A Bull is a rescue for Pit bulls in the Vancouver area that is run entirely by volunteers and serve the whole province of British Columbia. They are a web-based shelter and they put their dogs into foster homes, they will send out their dogs to foster homes for 30 days and during that time period you observe the dog and provide feedback on the dogs behavior, likes, dislikes, and personality. Volunteering is also a big part of the shelter, and the more they have the better. The volunteers help with things like fostering dogs, planning and helping with events, and transportation and home checks. Donations are greatly accepted and every bit helps! Check out their Website!
