Comedian Rebecca Corry Takes a Stand For Pit Bull Terriers

She might be best known for getting people to laugh and starring in NBC’s upcoming comedy “One Big Happy,” but Rebecca Corry is also known in the animal community for taking a stand for Pit Bull Terriers aka Pibbles.

In a recent interview with Variety, Corry opens up about why she took an interest in Pit Bulls, and it all started with adoption. “I had adopted a pit bull named Angel six years ago, her ears had been cut off and she had endured years of abuse.” Soon enough, Corry realized the stereotypes Pit bulls encounter, including people running away from Angel and asking, “Are you afraid of her?” She added, “It was a combination of being exposed to the breed and being directly affected by the ignorance, and I realized that doing nothing was not an option.”

In 2010, Corry decided to do something by holding the first Stand Up for Pits live benefit show and creating the first One Million Pibble March on Washington, which “aimed at ending breed specific legislation and dog-fighting, and fostering safe communities for humans and their four-legged friends.”

On Nov. 2, another Stand Up for Pits benefit will be held at the Hollywood Improv, with fellow animal activist Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting serving as host. Comedians Whitney Cummings and Bill Burr will join Corry on stage, in addition to Briana Cuoco (Cuoco-Sweeting’s sister) singing. The benefit will also include a Pit bull adoption and a Pibble kissing booth.

We all should follow in Corry’s footsteps by taking a stand for what we believe in. She even has her own foundation, Stand Up for Pits Foundation, where she will hopefully end Pibble discrimination.

“Ending discrimination is a major priority,” she said. “We hope to save dogs and save lives.”

    “Yeah, but this is a
    different breed…the power that comes behind bull dog, pit bull, presa
    canario, the fighting breed – They have an extra boost, they can go into
    a zone, they don’t feel the pain anymore. He is using the bulldog in
    him, which is way too powerful, so we have to ‘make him dog’ (I guess as
    in a “regular” dog) so we can actually create the limits.

    So if you are trying to create submission in a fighting breed, it’s not
    going to happen. They would rather die than surrender.”. If you add
    pain, it only infuriates them..to them pain is that adrenaline rush,
    they are looking forward to that, they are addicted to it…

    That’s why they are such great fighters.” Cesar goes on to
    say…”Especially with fighting breeds, you’re going to have these
    explosions over and over because there’s no limits in their brain.”

    Since this benefit in Oct 2014, 40 US citizens have been killed by Pit bulls. Sorry but this breed is no joke.
