Project Pit Bull Campaign at Asheville Humane Society (NC)

June 19, 2015 Asheville

You are invited to Project Pit Bull
Asheville Humane Society’s
Awareness & Action Campaign Kickoff Event

Friday, June 19 at 6:30 p.m.
Asheville Humane Society, 14 Forever Friend Lane

Deirdre Franklin, founder of Pinups for Pitbulls, owner of Darlings Asheville and author of Little Darling’s Pinups for Pitbulls will lead the discussion, “What is BSL and Can It Keep Us Safe?” The forum is the first of the campaign’s free services for pit bull owners, community resources, and other events.

It is our hope that in creating a conversation with citizens of all ages including homeowners, tenants, landlords, neighbors, pit bull enthusiasts and even the pit bull wary, we can grow a compassionate, conscientious community that promotes responsible pet ownership and no longer discriminates against breeds. We want Asheville to remain a dog-friendly city and evolve into a no-kill community. Yet in order to accomplish this, Buncombe County citizens need not only resources for proper training and care, but also places to live and happily coexist within the community with their beloved pets.

Complimentary refreshments will be served in addition to beer donated by Asheville Brewing. Recent celebrity, Roscoe the Pit Bull puppy will make an appearance! Beemer from BMW of Asheville is also a featured guest pooch. After the forum, Deirdre Franklin will hold a book signing.

We hope to see you there!
