YORKVILLE — This February, Kendall County Animal Control is having its second annual Pitty Party all month.

“Pit bulls are often passed by at the shelter because of the many misconceptions about the breed,” said animal control warden Anna Payton. “This month-long event encourages people to give these dogs a second look.”

Anyone who adopts a pit bull-type breed from Kendall County Animal Control in February will receive a special goodie bag for their new four-legged friend.

Not ready to commit to a long-term relationship? Enjoy the unconditional love of an animal by becoming a volunteer. The next volunteer orientation for Kendall County Animal Control will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20 at the Historic Courthouse in Yorkville.

Do you already have a “love-a-bull” friend? Join the online Pitty Party by submitting your favorite picture of your bully breed dog. All the pictures will be posted on Kendall County Animal Control’s website during February. For more information, visit www.co.kendall.il.us/animal_control or call 630-553-9256.
