October is National Pit Bull Awareness Month — National Pit Bull Awareness Day is Oct. 27th 2012
National Pit Bull Awareness Day (NPBAD) is a day of appreciation and education designed to change perceptions and stereotypes about pit bulls and their responsible owners. NPBAD was established to educate and foster positive communications and experiences in the communities in which we and our dogs live, and it is an initiative dedicated to restoring the image of the American Pit Bull Terrier.
NPBAD was started in 2007 by Beyond the Myth’s own Jodi Preis of Bless the Bullys, a pit bull rescue and education group in Middle Tennessee.
When Bless the Bullys introduced the idea of a nationwide pit bull awareness day, the response was overwhelming and it was immediately recognized by organizations across the country as an opportunity to educate, change minds, and bring about positive media attention to pit bull type dogs across the country all on one day.
