"We definitely want people to understand pit bulls are just a really misunderstood breed and they are really sweet," Amanda Bruniash, Marketing and Outreach Director, said. "And one of the things that we do here is we bring our pit bulls out so people can meet and greet them and see how really sweet and fun they are. So we definitely invite people to come out not just today but just any day to adopt any animal."

A kiss-a-bull booth was at the event to show just how sweet pit bulls are. The event also featuring vendors, a photo booth, a costume contest, and a pittie parade.
