Good News About Animals
The Champions is an inspirational story about the pit bulls rescued from the brutal fighting ring of former Atlanta Falcon's star quarterback Michael Vick, and those
who risked it all to save them, despite pressure
from PETA and The Humane Society of the United States to euthanize the dogs. It is a story of second-chances, redemption and hope.
This uplifting documentary takes us on a journey about much more than just dogs--it's about prejudice,
being misunderstood, the power of resilience, and the significance of the relationship we as humans have with animals.

March is Pit Bull Education Month
Bully breed dogs (which represent several breeds from English Bulldogs and Boxers to Boston Terriers and Bull Mastiffs) are also the group that the maligned American Pit Bull Terrier represents. More "Pit Bulls" enter, but never leave, shelters across the United States every year. By and large, they represent the most abused and neglected dogs in our country. The misperceptions that surround these dogs, their history and their worth continue to drive more into shelters where they wait longer than any other dogs for homes.
This month we are focusing on all things "Pit Bull" as we strive to educate and celebrate America's Dog--The American Pit Bull Terrier.
If you can't attend our annual Parade-a-Bull event, then please take a moment to watch this short video...you just might be surprised to find out who proudly owns a "Pit Bull" in our community!
