It's time for lights, camera, Pit Bulls at the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care & Adoption Center! The Animal Center is kicking off a new promotion, the 2011 Pitcademy Awards in which ten VIPs, Very Important Pits that is, will compete for the title of "Best Pit."
The promotion will start on January 28th and run through February 28th, and it will be up to the public to decide who will win the coveted Pitcademy Award. The ten dogs competing in the contest were chosen by volunteers and staff because of their wonderful personalities and "star quality" good looks. Each dog will have a "Walk-of-Fame" star on their kennel and a theme based on Oscar nominated films. One such VIP is Skye, a 3-year old, female blue Pit, who is "Little Miss Sunshine," because of her happy and outgoing disposition.
Members of the public are invited to visit the Center during operating hours to vote for their favorite Pit. Everyone who votes will be entered in a drawing to win fabulous prizes.
For any family that adopts one of the ten Pits, they will receive a "Swag Bag" filled with fun stuff for their new pet, which includes generous donations from Scrubby Puppy, Dogs Etc. and Trader Joes. The ten finalists for the Pitcademy awards will also undergo obedience training during the promotion.
The promotion is part of a new partnership between the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Center and nationally recognized Best Friends Animal Society. The Center is one of five shelters nationwide that was chosen to receive support from Best Friends in launching the "Saving America's Dog" Campaign, which will focus on informing and educating the public about the Pit Bull Terrier and what amazing dogs they are.
