We believe that no dog should suffer the injustice of discrimination, neglect, or abuse. 


To that end, Nashville PITTIE works to restore the Pit bull's positive image, through education, promoting responsible ownership, and spay/neuter programs.


In doing so, Nashville PITTIE will bring to light the true character of the Pit Bull, and the invaluable contributions they make as family pets and service companions, as they have for generations.

PittieFest 2017 Was One For The History Books

Wow! We may be a little biased but PITTIEfest 2017 was epic! Not only were we blessed with beautiful weather, but we also had the most beautiful pups and owners come out to our humble celebration of all thing PITTIE! We estimate we had 2500 to 2800 people and pets attend our little festival.


We would like to give a big shout out to all our guests, vendors, our house band BOOM, Metro Parks, our photographers, food trucks, artists, Mother Nature, and last but not least our awesome volunteers; somehow with all that and months of planning, a little chaos, stress tummies, and sweat and tears this was the perfect recipe for the awesomeness that went down on Sunday! 

Not only did we have a fun day of celebrating our pit bull type dogs, but we also handed out 43 spay and neuter vouchers just short of our goal of 50. Lets just put it this way, that's thousand of puppies (who inevitably grow into adult dogs) that won't potentially end up homeless, unwanted, neglected, abused, or euthanized in the shelters. So a big "Way to go!" for all those who are taking a step in the right direction in being the solution for the homeless pet population problem in this country.

Head over to the event page as we are updating it with photos and videos from Sunday. Also, we hope to have our online store up soon for those who didn't have the chance to purchase one of our rockin' event t-shirt or sweatshirt designed by the one and only Lee Copeland.

Again, thank you to everyone who helped make our humble rescue proud by making PITTIEfest '17 one for the history books!
