Local Humane Society Launches "Pit Bull People" Campaign



Just in time for Pit Bull Awareness Day (which was October 27th), the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County released a series of photographs of local families with their pit bull pets.

“Our community is overrun with pit bull-type dogs who desperately need homes, and the truly upsetting fact is that many adopters will not even consider these dogs because of the many myths and discriminatory propaganda surrounding them,” said Alexis Amorose, executive director of the Humane Society. “What we wanted to do here is show potential adopters, not to mention other parties like landlords and lawmakers, that pit bull-type dogs make excellent, loving additions to countless upstanding, responsible families.”

The Flyer picked our favorite three photos from the series to share with readers.
