By jim Published: October 22, 2010

The Humane Society of Greater Akron is hosting an educational day and adopt-athon on Saturday, October 23 from 10 AM – 6 PM at 7996 Darrow Road in Twinsburg Township to celebrate National Pit Bull Awareness Day.

"Our goalfor this event is to highlight some of our successful pit bull adoption stories and educate people on this breed," said Kristin Branagan, CPTD-KA, Director of Animal Behavior at Pawsibilities.

At noon, we will be presenting a seminar "Fact vs. Fiction - Busting the Myths of Pit Bulls." We will have refreshments and tours for people who have not been to the shelter and will have successful adoption stories posted and plenty of animals available for adoption.

We invite the public to come and learn more about this misunderstood breed, how we as a shelter behaviorally assess all dogs over six months of age and our role in the community as a No Time Limit shelter.
