Pit Bull Awareness Day is Oct. 28

Help us celebrate Pit Bull Awareness Day at the Burlington County Animal Shelter on Saturday, Oct. 28 from noon to 3 p.m.

Outside, there will be dog play groups, a Halloween costume contest with prizes, the ever-popular Kiss-A-Bull booth and a truth about pit bulls information table.

Inside, it will be Cuddle-A-Kitty Day, so the cats don't feel overlooked, and there will also be a toy-making station and a bake sale. Plus, we'll also be selling Santa Paws 50/50 tickets -- last year's winner took home nearly $2,000, so make sure to buy some tickets!

Our group is also sponsoring a pit bull adoption promotion. For the entire month of October, approved adopters can take home any pit bull at not cost. If anyone is looking for a new dog, October is the month to adopt!
