TURNING KIDS INTO ANIMAL HEROES BY TEACHING RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERSHIP
1- Do not hit your pet! If your pet misbehaves, reward training is much more effective then hitting.
2- Don’t keep your pet chained outside! Do you sleep under a tree with a chain around your neck? NO! Your pet wants to be near you. Dogs are not yard ornaments!
3- Don’t tease animals! Did you know animals can feel embarrassed? Just like you, their feelings can get hurt.
4- Be sure your pet has proper food & water! No pet should ever go hungry! If you can’t afford to feed your pet, contact your local food bank for assistance.
5- Use a proper collar! Items like rope, chains,
wire, or zip ties should never be used on pets!
Here are some ways you can Be Cool Not Cruel!

If you’re afraid of pitbulls,
Please don’t be.
We’re actually loveable
And very sweet.
We want to be your friend.
And our bad reputation needs to end.
We are just like any other pet.
And we deserve more respect.
We don’t like being used to fight.
Being cruel to animals isn’t right.
So don’t bully our breed.
A true friend is all we need.
Give us a chance and you will see,
How great a pet we can be.
But be careful, cause we pitbulls
Do leave a mark,
With our wet kisses
And Pawprints on your heart.
