BullsEye Dog Rescue will be hosting its fourth annual “Pit Bulls on Parade” event this Saturday, August 25 in Issaquah, Wash. This mutt-tastic event will feature adoptable Pit Bulls, and raise funds and awareness on Pit Bull type breeds.
“There are an estimated 9-10 million Pit Bulls in the United States today, and they are the fourth most licensed breed of dog in Seattle,” said Lorrie Kalmbach-Ehlers, president of BullsEye Dog Rescue. “Despite the handful of negative incidents you read about in the news, the majority of Pit Bulls are simply living their lives as cherished family members, therapy and working dogs. This event celebrates the real Pit Bull for its intelligence, athleticism and goofy personality.”
Festivities will include dog demonstrations such as weight pull, slat mill and agility, with an opportunity for dog owners to get their mutts in on the dog-friendly competition. The event will also feature fun canine contests for best butt wiggle, best kisser and best trick. Raffle drawings will be held throughout the day and over 25 vendors are expected at this year’s event. The day will conclude in down right doggie fashion with a parade of adoptable Pit Bulls strutting their stuff in hopes of finding their forever home!
BullsEye Dog Rescue will also be offering free Canine Good Citizen testing for Pit Bulls and Pit mixes. The Canine Good Citizen is an amazing program that is recognized nationally and rewards dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. For every Pit Bull or Pit mix that earns this prestigious award, BullsEye Rescue will then receive $150 through a grant from Animal Farm Foundation.
Let’s make a difference and support our furry four-legged friends by attending this amazing event. Woof!
