Pet Events from July 30 - August 6, 2014
This week's Pet Events Newsletter is brought to you by

Do you have a bully-type dog and are tired of people crossing the street when they see you coming? Do you want to help fight BDL (breed discriminatory legislation) and educate people about how loving and friendly bully dogs are? 

Do you have a dog who is nervous of strangers and would like people to be alerted?

Do you have a dog who is not good with other dogs and would like other dog walkers to be aware?



These collars, harnesses and leashes address these issues. By using a simplistic color-coded system, we can keep dogs and humans safe. 


We can educate people about the loving nature of bully dogs and 

thereby help fight BDL. 

Or you may just want your dog to stand out among her/his canine pals!

There are collars and harnesses for all sized dogs. The products use bright colors and large embroidered writing, which makes them visible from a distance. They are high quality and made from the best materials available. 

As the writing is embroidered, it never fades or washes out.


To get your own Outspoken Dog Collar click on our logo below or visit us at and find the collar, leash or harness to help you and your pup while out and about!


Thanks to Outspoken Dog Collars for making this newsletter possible!

Adoption Corner!

Introducing Erin!
Erin is a 4 years young American Bulldog/Terrier Mix around 55 lbs, that is spayed and microchipped. She has been at the shelter going on 3 years and we have no idea why she hasn't been scooped up yet! She is a sweet, gentle, mellow and lovable girl who loves people and kids and also seems ok with most large dogs. Erin knows Sit and Stay, takes a treat gently and walks well on a leash. She seems house-trained as well. Since Erin is very food motivated I'm sure she can be trained to learn a lot more!
