Art For Pitties Launched new Blog Site

Art For Pitties Launched new Blog Site

New York, NY- Art For Pitties, a fundraising initiative spearheaded by long-time activist Jenith Mateja, is launching its blog site on July 1st. Art For Pitties is a collaborative project showcasing over 30 artists and their work throughout the month of July at blog address: http://artforpitties.blogspot.com. Each artist will donate a piece of original art or design a one-of-a-kind tote bag to be auctioned online during the month of August. All proceeds will benefit San Diego-based pit bull rescue and advocacy group Even Chance.

In the United States, pit bulls are underdogs. Misrepresented by the media and associated with fighting and aggressive behavior, these loving family dogs are the subject of breed bans and are often euthanized in shelters. The stigma surrounding pit bull ownership is currently unmatched by other breeds and Even Chance seeks to provide education and advocacy while running a rescue that finds homes for these loyal dogs.

All artists involved in Art For Pitties has a pit bull as a companion animal or is an advocate for the breed. They are working together to raise much needed funds for costs associated with medical needs,
spay and neuter procedures, food, crates, heartworm preventatives and training classes as well as literature needed for outreach programs and events.

The Art For Pitties blog will feature the initiative’s mission to educate the public on the plight of the pit bull and to create an awareness of this through art.

  1. Those are such magnificent animals, smart and eager to please. I think it's wonderful to raise awareness concerning these misunderstood dogs. It's inadequate and inappropriate ownership that is this gorgeous animal's downfall and it's about time the responsibility gets shifted back to the humans behind this breed.

  2. So cute!!!
    Such a worthy cause!
    Love the tote and paw print!

  3. This was such a fun piece to work on, I cant wait to see all the other totes:)

  4. This is a great cause - our applause and good wishes go with them in their endeavour.

  5. I'm really looking forward to the full display of art when it goes up Aug 22nd on ebay!
