Shorty Rossi to Appear at Spay/Neuter Education Event

Offering a helping hand to Hand-in-Paw Rescue, Animal Planet star Shorty Rossi and his canine companion Hercules from the hit series Pit Boss will make a two-day ‘Pit’ stop in Louisville, Kentucky to meet fans, raise funds and raise awareness of the need to spay and neuter pets.

After signing copies of his autobiography “Four Feet Tall and Rising: A Memoir” on November 16th at Hand-In-Paw Safety’s The Woofery, a family-owned pet product store which offers dog safety classes, the reality personality will offer double the fun by attending two events on the 17th, starting with a Spay/Neuter Education Event.

Partnering with Hand-In-Paw Rescue, Inc. and Louisville Metro Animal Services, potential pet parents can meet adorable adoptables from area rescues, browse among booths brimming with pet-related products, get Shorty’s autograph, and enjoy tasty treats while they learn the importance of curbing the pet population through sterilization.

The day of dogged devotion continues that evening with an appearance by Shorty at Lil Cheezers, where friends of Fidos can tap their feet to the beat of tunes performed by Indiana Joe and Arrow and chow down on delicious grilled cheese, with Hand-In-Paw Rescue– a non-breed specific rescue which focuses on helping pregnant dogs and their puppies– receiving 10% of all sales during the event.
