What we're about
We welcome those who support pits, even if you aren't NYC residents or pit bull owners!
** NYC meetups for Pit bulls / Pit mixes (staffs, rescues, etc) every Saturday or Sunday throughout whole year. **
We meet at various parks and dog runs, dog-friendly restaurants, take walks along rivers and bridges, and through New York City neighborhoods. A great opportunity to socialize your dogs in a welcoming and helpful environment. Options abound for people with dog-aggressive pits who still want to get out and meet people, and get your dog exercise. We hold both on-leash and off-leash meetups, and a variety of events in many boroughs of NYC.
Chance to meet people who love their pits, want to have fun, & want to get rid of ugly untrue stereotypes surrounding the breed. Find tips that will aid in stopping unwanted behaviors, and get advice from other pit bull owners.
