TOLEDO (13abc Action News) - This is Pit Bull awareness month. To celebrate, a local rescue and training group is throwing a big party and you're invited.
Toledo's Pet Bull Project works to prevent animal cruelty and dog fighting. The group also works to teach people responsible pet ownership.
The organization is throwing a parking lot party Saturday. It will include everything from a barbecue to kids activities and free dog training to a costume contest for dogs and people. Cindy Reinsel is the Director of Toledo's Pet Bull Project,"Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are the most abused and most misunderstood dogs. We want people to come meet some of them and see just how loving they are. We also have a few up for adoption tomorrow. We just want to educate people and let them see firsthand what a wonderful breed they are."
The parking lot party is Saturday from 1-4pm at the Pet Bull Project's headquarters. That's at 12 E. Bancroft in the Bancroft Plaza near the intersection of Franklin.
It is free and open to everyone and you are invited to bring your dog, no matter what their breed.
