I have asked Jessica Day (the organizer for this event) to write about why she started the Pitbull Awareness Campaign:

“Well my love for animals especially dogs dated back to before I was born (I get it from my dad’s side of the family), I feel so much of an inner connection with them! Before I got pitbulls I never in my mind thought I would have one let alone two (and I wouldn’t change it for the world – they are my babies) & honestly I was scared of them but my boyfriend introduced me to them & I fell in-love! They have the most gentle souls, the most expressional eyes and always eager to please, how can you pass on knowing such a lovely breed? But unfortunately they are the ones to get the bad rep. :( because they are so misunderstood. I’ve searched deep down for so long to find a way to help and as much as it breaks my heart, I’m unable to help them all, so I’ve decided I would start by dedicating a day to the pitbull breed here in Fort McMurray. A day where no one can wrongly judge them & they can relax!I’m hoping that the Pitbull Fun Show is a big enough success that we can have an annual one every year and hopefully forms a lifelong group :) I encourage everyone to come by, even people that believe the stereotype, to see truly how wonderful they really are”

She would like to thank the support of the community through the fundraisers we have had & future ones! Without you we would not be able to make this day happen. Also we are looking for volunteers for June 29th, so if you would like to help out in anyway feel free to contact me :)
