See the Multnomah County Animal Services "Pitties in Pink" Float in 2019 at the Starlight Parade, and Pride Parade.

The “Pitties in Pink” float was conceived as a way to destigmatize pit bulls, dispel fears and stereotypes surrounding bully-breeds, and to showcase them as the friendly family dogs they can be. Today, the float is a symbol to promote adoption of the many wonderful animals waiting for homes in local shelters.

Pitties in Pink won the Portlandia Award at the 2019 Starlight Parade!

Pitties in Pink won first place (non-commercial division) at the 2018 Starlight Parade!
