“I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.” ~Abraham Lincoln
The Pit Bull Awareness Coalition is a project of Animal Rescue of Tidewater and is comprised of local animal rescue groups, animal’s rights advocates, trainers and responsible “Bully Breed” owners from Southside Hampton Roads, Virginia.
Our members and Ambassador Dogs, host, compete in, and attend local K9 fun
events, to show definitively that Pit Bull Dogs are as capable of being a
family member as any other breed. All of our Ambassador Dogs are trained and have received their AKC Canine Good Citizen award. Many work in local hospitals, libraries, and schools educating the public on K9 safety, helping children learn to read or simply bringing joy to sick and elderly patients.
Each PBAC member is dedicated to changing the public’s perceptions, being good Ambassadors, and being the voice for our beloved Bully Breeds.
The Coalition Aims to:
- Dispel the myths & misconceptions surrounding bully breeds
- Promote responsible bully breed ownership
- End breed discrimination
- Raise awareness about the true loving nature of bully breeds
