1. HOW CAN I BECOME INVOLVED WITH PINUPS FOR PITBULLS, INC.?
Volunteer! Right now, we are looking for volunteers to add to our growing Street Team. Our team is essential to getting the word out there about PFPB and encouraging humane education and proper dog ownership. If you are interested in joining our staff, email Sandra Dee at .

2. I WANT PFPB TO COME TO MY HOMETOWN! HOW CAN I GET YOU THERE?
We at PFPB are a small group of volunteers, but we try to get our message to states and cities all over the country (and world!).
Check our Events link–we may be coming to a city near you before you know it!
If you are either a restauranteur, small business owner, tattoo artist, or are employed at a suitable venue and you wish to host a PFPB event, please email Events Coordinator Sandra Dee at .
If you are hosting a large event, conference, party, or pit bull type-dog educational seminar, please email us as well.
Please be patient–we cannot be everywhere at once (although we wish we could!). If we are unable to come to your event due to travel restrictions or conflict with another date, please bear with us and invite us again next year!
3. I WANT TO BE A PFPB MODEL, CAN I SUBMIT PICTURES?
We at PFPB are so much more than models–we are dog advocates, educators, and rescuers.
Each year, PFPB opens up our Calendar Model Application Process. The application process typically opens in the spring and differs from year to year. Please sign up for our e-mailing list on the home page to be one of the first to know about our applications for the calendar year.
We do not accept headshots or other images from models EXCEPT during our application process. We will not consider anything sent to us that is not part of the formal applications process for legal reasons.
4. I DO NOT WANT TO BE A MODEL, BUT I WANT MY DOG TO BE FEATURED IN A PFPB CALENDAR!
If you are looking to have your dog featured in our calendar, we accept dog-only submissions during the open model call for our calendar. Please join our e-newsletter on our homepage to be notified when the model call opens.
5. WHAT IS BSL? WHAT IF I BELIEVE BSL IS ENTERING MY TOWN?
BSL stands for Breed Specific Legislation. Together with BDL or Breed Discriminatory Laws, BSL targets specific dogs solely based on breed alone. As we all know that “Pit Bull” is not a breed, but rather a classification that lumps in American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Bull Terriers, American Bullies, and all mixes and variations of these breeds, these laws are bogus and discriminate unfairly.
If you believe that BSL is threatening your town or city, let us know. We have information to arm you with at city council meetings and elections. You need to have the facts before you can argue against BSL effectively. Together, we hope to end BSL and BDL everywhere.
6. I FOUND A STRAY DOG, WHAT DO I DO? -or- I NEED TO FIND A NEW HOME FOR A DOG, WHAT DO I DO?
PFPB is not a rescue organization, meaning we do not have foster space available for dogs in need of homes. HOWEVER, we do work closely with several rescue organizations who may be able to assist you. Please reach out to our Urgent Dog Liaison, Jen, at . We can provide you with what information we have available, and we can post the images and descriptions of dogs in need of homes on our social media sites. Cross-posting saves lives!
If you have found a stray dog, please bring it to a vet or shelter immediately to have it scanned for microchip. If it does not have tags or a microchip, if you can, please hold on to the dog while you try to locate the owner via flier and online-posts. The shelters are inundated with pit-bull type dogs. To ensure that this dog remains safe, fostering it until it can find permanent housing is the best thing you can do to help!
7. I AM INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT PFPB & HOW TO PROPERLY RAISE MY DOG, CAN I HAVE SOME MORE LITERATURE?

PFPB has teamed up with Drayton Michaels of Pit Bull Guru and Game Dog Guardian and together we have developed cutting-edge and informative educational materials that will help in almost every situation involving a pit-bull type dog (or any dog, in fact!). The EDU Pack is available for download on our Resources page!
