Art For Pit Bulls

Animal activist launches Art for Pitties, a project auctioning animal-friendly art to help rescue pit bulls.

Recently, New York-based animal activist Jenith Mateja launched Art for Pitties, a project focused on saving rescued pit bulls. Throughout July, more than 30 animal-friendly artists, designers, and muscians will donate original artwork to the projects, which will be auctioned off online in August, with all proceeds benefiting pit bull rescue and advocacy group Even Chance in San Diego, Calif. Mateja was inspired to create Art for Pitties after learning that pit bulls are an unpopular breed for adoption, forcing shelters to eventually euthanize them. In addition to sheltering and rescuing pit bulls, Even Chance works to educate and inform people of the gentle, affable nature of pit bulls, and dispel myths of violence and aggression.
