Hi Everyone, as you all know, animal welfare, and particularly dog rescue and advocacy is something I hold dear to my heart. Tank and Banjo both came to us out of horrific sitautions, along with the dogs we have fostered over the years and gone on to their forever homes. I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to my favorite charity and one of the many reasons I will be running Saturday April 8th. I will be running my half marathon, not only for myself, but for thousands of dogs nationwide, particularly "pitbull" type dogs, who fall victim to dog fighting, abuse, neglect, overbreeding, discrimnation and BSL. I had the opportunity to pick whatever charity I wanted and I could think of no better charity than Stand Up for Pits. They advocate for dogs in all of these situations and also assist with rescue. They believe where there is animal abuse there is other violent crimes. Help us stop the abuse of innocent dogs and put away violent offenders. If you would like to learn more about this wonderful organization and their wonderful work fighting the victimization of "pitbull" type dogs, please visit: http://www.standupforpits.us/about-stand-up-for-pits/
