B.A.D. DogsBullies are Deserving Dogs
  • B.A.D. Dogs (Bullies Are Deserving Dogs) is a
    program that took shape when we saw wonderful
    dogs sitting in the shelter, unadopted, simply
    because they were pit bulls. Based in a
    low-income area of Jersey City, NJ over flowing
    with pit bulls, we understood that more adoptions
    mean more education.

The Unexpected Pit bull
  • By illustrating stories of pit bulls sharing
    their lives with a variety of people and animals,
    we hope to help inspire a better understanding
    and appreciation of pit bulls, and combat the
    negative stereotype held against these dogs.
  • Liberty Humane Society volunteer Jyo OHare and
    Board President and photographer, Laura Moss
    launched the calendar in 2005. Today, THE
    UNEXPECTED PIT BULL is distributed nation-wide
    and benefits pit programs across the country.
