Following in the footsteps of fellow Pit Bull-loving personalities Holly Marie Combs (Charmed, Pretty Little Liars) and Pit Boss star Shorty Rossi, Tia Torres and the crew from Pit Bulls & Parolees (which returns for a fourth season this fall on Animal Planet) will help to promote a positive image of our tail-wagging chums of the Pit Bull variety at Love-A-Bull’s fourth annual Texas-Sized Pittie Pride Pit Bull awareness event.
The free, Fido-friendly festival begins with the Parade of Pit Bulls (and Friends,) a costume-laden canine and human companion constitutional up Congress Avenue. The Pit Crew– Love-A-Bull’s all-Pit Bull therapy dog group– will lead the pack as Grand Marshals.
After the promenade of Pitties, pet parents and their pups will party for a paws cause at the Festival in Republic Square Park. The day of dogged devotion will include a silent auction; Q & A’s with rescue organizations and trainers; vendors; music; games for the young as well as the young at heart and adorable adoptables from Austin Animal Center, Austin Pets Alive!, EmanciPET, Animal Trustees of Austin and the Austin Humane Society.
When: October 28, 2012 Parade starts at noon; festival runs from 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Where: Republic Square Park in Austin, Texas
