Pit bulls get a pretty bad rap and, sadly, are often the first to be euthanized in shelters.
To help raise awareness for this generally lovable breed, long-time NY-based activist Jenith Mateja recently launched Art For Pitties — a collaborative project showcasing over 30 artists and their work.
Here’s how it works: Throughout the entire month of July, each artist will design a piece of original art or a one-of-a-kind tote bag. The individual art projects will then be auctioned online during the month of August to raise money for San Diego-based pit bull rescue and advocacy group Even Chance.
What’s more, all of the artists involved in the initiative are either pit bull owners or outspoken advocates for the breed. We like!
