WHY: Pit Bull-type dogs are often not adopted due to strict breed or weight restrictions at many residential properties, never giving them the chance to show their loving, wonderful personalities to potential families. Pit Bulls are also overlooked in shelters due to unfortunate and inaccurate breed stereotyping.

SPCA of Texas Voices

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
