The Positive Pit Bull
The Positive Pit Bull is a non-profit 501(c)(3) focused on changing the general negative perception of pit bulls.
Our efforts include education and advocacy for the pit bull breeds, and we work on keeping as many as possible out of the shelters through education, positive training and socialization.
Responsible ownership is the cornerstone of our efforts and we reach out to communities to help owners become more responsible in owning these dogs.
We promote pit bulls as family members, as deserving members of society that add joy and value to people’s lives, and as the happy-go-lucky, fun-loving, people-loving joyful nature that is the highlight of the true pit bull personality.
The Positive Pit Bull works hard to decrease the euthanasia rate of pit bulls in North Carolina by changing the perception the public has about pit bull type dogs. We do this through educational events designed to help the general public gain an understanding of these dogs, public awareness campaigns designed to highlight the positive side of the breed, performing therapy work with our therapy pit bulls – leaving a positive impression of the breeds wherever we go, providing free community training and socialization for pit bulls so they have the best chance for remaining in their homes, and providing training so that more of our communities pit bulls will receive their CGC. We usually invite some of our community’s shelter pit bulls to our events to help get them more exposure and find their forever homes! We believe pit bulls are the bees knees, that all dogs deserve a chance and we work to help people become more responsible owners so that the breeds will succeed. We believe that the American Pit Bull Terrier is STILL “America’s Dog”. You’d be surprised that probably more than a few of YOUR neighbors have pit bulls as pets! Go meet one! You will forever changed.
