Become a Pinup



The 2018 Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. finalists have all been notified! Thank you so much to everyone that participated in our brand ambassador model search! Please know that this process took us over 6 weeks to complete. We work very hard to advocate for our beloved fur friends all year long and we’d love for you get involved with us throughout the year (not Just during the calendar call). You don’t have to be in the calendar to volunteer, start a team in your area or to get active with our mission as a volunteer. We hope to see you more and more this year!

Thank you to everyone who helped us with their donation fee. Each tax-deductible fee helps us continue to save lives and create happier, healthier, safer communities!

The Pinups for Pitbulls Judging Panel (all 11 of us!)

4/30/17 Update 10:49pm EST

We won’t be notifying 2018 Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. brand ambassador choices on time. We’re sorry about this. We’ve had multiple judges needing extra time & we’re driving back from KY all day tomorrow (5/1). We’ll be notifying people early on this week but it won’t be the 1st of May as planned. We’re sorry for any added anticipation time.
Don’t forget, you can be involved as a volunteer and brand ambassador REGARDLESS OF calendar outcome. We need volunteers nationally and internationally daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly. You can sign up through our website contact form.

Post-2018 Model Call Application FAQ’s:

Due to the high volume of applications, we regret that we are unable to respond to each applicant individually. However, one of our volunteers may reach out to you about your application responses and volunteering opportunities in your region. Please keep an eye out for messages that may come from Stacey, Nancy, Carrie, or Rachel.

The calendar application review will not be finalized until May 1, 2017. It takes us quite a while to complete the judging process. We try to make sure that all applications get the review time that they deserve. We have a panel of 10 judges across the United States. Some of been in the calendar in the past and all of the judges are volunteers and representatives of Pinups for Pitbulls. Many of the judges have been with us since the beginning years of Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc.

If you are a finalist, you will receive a telephone call from us before or by May 1, 2017.

If you are not a finalist, please do not be discouraged. We need volunteers all year long, regardless of calendar modeling. Our organization exists to end canine discrimination once and for all so that we can live in safe communities with our beloved companion animals. The calendar is one small part. We encourage you to get involved with us and make a strong impression!

We want to thank you for your generous donation that you have made by applying for our brand ambassador search/model call .  As a registered 501(c)3 Non Profit, we guarantee that 100% of your donation helps us to advocate for safer, more humane laws and legislation for all dogs – regardless of breed or mix. Your donation also allows us to educate people about the human-canine bond and to advocate for individual dogs in need. Additionally, we provide free courtesy posts for organizations worldwide and in 2016 alone, we were able to help keep 1003 dogs off of death row and helped to connect them to foster or permanent homes. Your donation allows us to offer such a magical service to rescues/shelters/individuals/dogs in need. We are truly grateful for your support!

Lastly, we want you to know that we take this search very seriously year after year. It is often discouraging to myself and to our judging panel when we receive passionate and amazing entries, but never hear from people again if they aren’t selected. This is truly only one facet of our job as advocates and there are still only 12 months in a year that we can afford to pay for when creating our calendar. The application usually brings in hundreds of amazing applications from all over the world. We wish we could select everyone and their dogs, but that’s simply impossible. We ask that you remember this if you don’t get that call. It’s never personal. It’s always hard for us no matter how it all shakes out, especially for me, as the face of this great organization. Please remember that you matter and we need you in this fight against breed discriminatory laws. We need our empathy army to be strong and to grow. We cannot do this alone. This is why we open this up year after year, to gain new and amazing team members on a global scale. Regardless of the outcome, we hope that you’ll join us and grow with us.

With Great Love & Light, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
