October is Pit Bull Awareness Month

October is Pit Bull Awareness Month! Friends of MADACC is excited to kick off this month with several community engagement initiatives, free spay/neuter surgeries for pit bull type dogs for anyone in Milwaukee County, and by hosting Pit Bull Awareness Day Celebration at Camp Bar Tosa on October 20th.

Five Easy Ways to Participate in Pit Bull Awareness Month


1) Share your adoption story

Have you adopted a pit bull from MADACC? Share your story! Send us a photo of your pup, or even better, the whole family and tell us what you love about your furbaby. Help us show Milwaukee what incredible family members they make. Please include your first name and your pups name. Email all stories to cdavisfom@gmail.com.


2) Feature your Favorite Adopt-a-Bull

Do you also volunteer at MADACC dog walking or adoptions counseling and know some of the adopt-a-bulls? Tell us who you would like to see get some extra social media attention!

Send an email to Cassidy at cdavisfom@gmail.com. Include the name of the adoptable pit bull that you would like to feature, one or two sentences about what you absolutely love about them, and your first name.

See image to the right for an example of a past adoptable.


3) Take your pride to social media

Don’t just tell us what you love about your pit bull or pit bulls in general, tell the world! Share your story on social media using #pitbullproud to spread awareness. Need some help getting started? Download some pre-made images here.

This year we also have a Facebook frame that you can use. Follow this link to update your profile photo with our Pit Bull Proud frame.


4) Wear your pride on your sleeve

Do you already have our Pit Bull Proud gear? Wear it out and take your dog in their bandanna to show your pittie pride everywhere you go! Imaginary bonus points* if you tag us on social media or use #pitbullproud.

*Bonus point winners are eligible to receive a repost from @friendsofmadacc on Instagram.


5) Volunteer

Want to get more involved in-person? Volunteer for Friends of MADACC! Help with fundraising and outreach events. Our next event is Pit Bull Awareness Day at Camp Bar in Tosa on Saturday, October 20th. Click here to become a part of the Friends of MADACC volunteer list.

MADACC also has opportunities to volunteer at the shelter if you do not already. Volunteer to walk dogs, counsel adopters during the adoption process, help with laundry to keep the environment of the animals clean, and more! Learn more about volunteer opportunities at MADACC.


Free Spay/Neuter Surgeries

During October, Friends of MADACC will be offering free spay/neuter surgeries to all pit bull type dogs in Milwaukee County. Email FOMSpayNeuterProgram@gmail.com to receive your free voucher.


Pit Bull Awareness Day Celebration

All of these efforts will culminate with a one-day celebration at Camp Bar Tosa on October 20th. Join Friends of MADACC for this celebration and help us fundraise to continue to help and support all of the local homeless pitties in Milwaukee County. Learn more and join us on October 20th.
