Pinups for Pitbulls (PFPB) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to educate people about the history, temperament, and plight of the pit bull-type dog; raising awareness to rally against Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) and Breed Discriminatory Laws (BDL). PFPB’s goal is to restore the image of the pit bull-type dog to its former reputation of America’s companion animal, war hero, and family member.

PFPB has been able to host educational seminars, community outreach initiatives, and fund-raising events throughout the United States (and now Canada!). In its educational crusade, PFPB hopes to end discrimination, abuse, and the unnecessary killing of pit bull-type dogs around the world–all the while dreaming that one day, PFPB will no longer be needed.

(NC) Indy Book Signing feat. Bronwen Dickey & Deirdre Franklin

August 1, 2017 Asheville

Book Signing & Reading at 7pm

Malaprop’s Bookstore

55 Haywood St, Asheville, NC 28801

The Pit Bull Life: A Dog Lover’s Companion, by Deirdre Franklin and Linda Lombardi. This charming, giftable book is a complete guide to owning and loving a pit bull, as well as a colorful, photo-filled celebration of the breed. Although pit bulls were once seen as an iconic American dog and a symbol of strength and loyalty, the breed’s image has suffered since. Today, common misconceptions and breed-banning laws can pose a challenge to the pit bull owner.

Author Deirdre Franklin is the founder of the advocacy and rescue group Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. Linda Lombardi is a pet expert and writer on animal issues of all kinds. 

About Bronwen Dickey’s book, ‘Pit Bull: The Battle over an American Icon.’

“When Bronwen Dickey brought her new dog home, she saw no traces of the infamous viciousness in her affectionate pit bull. Which made her wonder: How had the breed—beloved by Teddy Roosevelt and Helen Keller—come to be known as a brutal fighter? Dickey’s search for answers takes her from nineteenth-century New York dogfighting pits to early twentieth‑century movie sets, from the battlefields of Gettysburg to struggling urban neighborhoods. In this illuminating story of how a popular breed became demonized–and what role humans have played in the transformation–Dickey offers us an insightful view of Americans’ relationship with their dogs.”

The Stand Up For Pits Foundation is thrilled to be coming to Philadelphia to Stand Up For Pits!!

The SUFP Foundation is dedicated to ending abuse, discrimination and saving the lives of pitbull “type” dogs. This “type” of dog based soley on appearance is the target of extreme abuse, discriminatory bans and has been falsely vilified and killed for over 3 decades and it must end. Stand Up For Pits events help us to educate, advocate and save lives. Pit Bull type dogs are born inherently good and deserve to be protected, respected and treated with compassion and without prejudice like all life deserves.

These events sell out around the country, save countless lives and continue to raise national and international awareness. We support other pitbull “type” dog rescues around the country. Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. and Don’t Bully Us Rescue are participating. Don’t Bully Us will be bringing available Pibbles for adoption and both groups will be selling merchandise, collecting donations and will receive 100% of proceeds from their silent auctions. Ticket sales go to the Stand Up For Pits Foundation.

We are all in this together and there is much work that needs to be done. We thank you all for your dedication to being the voice of the voiceless and being part of the solution to saving lives and look so forward to seeing you all in Philly and please remember to bring some much needed shelter supplies for your local shelter animals!
