Announcing Pit Bull Day!!!
Chain of Hope, in partnership with KPRS, 103.3 Hot Jams, is excited to announce Pit Bull Day on Saturday, June 29th, 2013. Pit Bull Day will be held in Swope Park, shelter #3 from noon-3:00 pm. KPRS will be doing a live remote from noon-2:00 and Chain of Hope will be there until 3:00 pm.
This will be a highly educational event for inner city pit bull owners. We will also be offering:
- free spay/neuter sign-ups
- $5 vaccinations
- $10 city licenses
- free microchips to all pit bulls that are already spayed and neutered
- free microchips at the time of spay/neuter for those that are not altered yet
- free tie-out cables to get these poor dogs off of heavy tow chains
- free collars
- free flea control
- free fly control
- free water buckets
We will have a veterinarian there to answer any questions from pit bull owners.
We will have trainers there to answer any questions or help solve behavioral problems the owner might be having.
There will be drawings for prizes and contests to win.
We will have several displays with lots of visuals and educational materials covering everything from spaying/neutering, pit bull fighting, ear cropping, socialization of pit bulls, etc.
We will be canvassing with flyers previous to this event in high targeted neighborhoods. If you’d like to join us to get flyers out, it will be the 2 Sundays before the event, so June 16 and June 23 . If you’re interested in doing this, watch face book for meeting times and locations!
Our goal is to educate pit bull owners and help improve the health and comfort level of their dogs. Many of them will be outside 24/7 on chains all summer and we can assist them to make things much more comfortable for their outside pit bull. Spaying and neutering is our ultimate goal and we will be there to help people get that done!
If someone in the inner city has a pit bull, then this is the place to be!
Don’t forget about our Super Garage Sale!!!
Chain of Hope will be holding a super garage sale on Saturday, June 1st from 8:00 am-4:00 pm. All proceeds benefit Chain of Hope’s medical fund. Please start that spring cleaning and get your items together! The sale will be at 642 W. 70th street, KCMO 64113 (map). Mark and Teri Koenig have bravely offered to host the garage sale for Chain of Hope again. We appreciate them!!!
You may drop off items from May 11th-May 30th from 12-6 pm. There will be a large Chain of Hope sign in the front yard as well as a sign on the gate. People can drop off items by the back gate. If you have larger items that you don’t want to set outside, you can contact Teri at:

The more we have to sell, the more money that we can make for the animals!
