Pittie Party & Parade

The Pit Bull Breed is Celebrated

THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS YEAR'S PITTIE PARTY A SUCCESS 
OCTOBER 20, 2018 | PITTIE PARTY & PARADE

The Pittie Party celebrates the often misunderstood Pit Bull Breed. This breed makes up a large percentage of HSHA's adoptable dog population. HSHA invites all animal lovers (and their leashed canine pals of all breeds) each year to join us for a free, fun-filled day celebrating breed equality. Visitors can enjoy vendors for pets and pet owners, food and drink, a photo booth, a costume contest, an adoptable pittie parade, kids activities, and adoption and retail specials!  Well-known Pit Bull advocacy groups will also be on hand at the event. A low-cost vaccination and microchipping clinic will also be available the morning of the event. "HSHA works hard to advocate for the Pit Bull, as they truly make wonderful and loving companions," said HSHA's staff member.  "It's important to show that the breed's often incorrect reputation is primarily a result of human irresponsibility and to educate the public on humane pet ownership."


Stay tuned for event photos and costume contest winners from 2018!

How Can I Help Homeless Animals in My Community Today?

Currently our greatest need is canned food for both dogs and cats! Our cats prefer pate but the pups aren't picky! In addition, we could use some Clorox Wipes to help maintain a safe, clean, and healthy environment for all the sheter's residents.

Check out HSHA's Amazon Wish List for more specific needs.

We have several dogs and cats that are looking for a foster home.  If you think you may be able to help, please visit our Fosters Needed page.
