We call bull on “pit Bull” awareness

23

October, 2018

Welcome to our podcast of awkward openings! This week, Nikki and Regina are talking about one of our least favorite topics: “pit bull” awareness events.

Society has evolved and dog advocates must evolve with it. When we don’t, our efforts end up having the opposite effect than what we intend them to have.

We know this is probably going to make people angry because it’s a total WTF thing to hear from an organization like ours. If this episode makes you uncomfortable that’s probably a good thing.

So grab a beverage, take a few swigs, and settle in to hear us chat about the undercurrent of racism and classism in breed discrimination and learn some better ways to advocate than with misguided awareness campaigns.

Listen to the episode:
