Philadelphia area animal activists plan to let their voices be heard before the Eagles/Jaguars game tonight.
The Pennsylvania SPCA and Best Friends Animal Society, the Utah-based organization that took in 22 of the pit bulls seized from Michael Vick, are hosting a rally for the 2nd Chance Dogs of Philadelphia.
These are the pit bulls that have been rescued from abuse and neglect by the Pennsylvania SPCA’s Humane Law Enforcement Officers or found as strays by Animal Control.
More than 80 percent of the PSPCA’s canine population in Philadelphia is made up of pit bulls and pit bull mixes who have been rescued from abuse, neglect or dog fighting operations. The 2nd Chance Dogs of the PSPCA are barking for the opportunity at forever homes. Supporters of the PSPCA, animal lovers and friends are invited to help raise awareness of the plight of pit bulls in shelters and encourage adoption.
