Join us for our 4th Annual Canine Carnival in honor of all things dogs!

My Pit Bull is Family is a Minneapolis based non-profit organization with one mission – To end housing and insurance discrimination for all families with dogs. Through our work we are able to keep families together through providing the nation’s largest rental database that accepts all dogs, assisting families through our Together At Home Project and through our many educational community events across the country. Join us in celebrating all things dog on October 5th at Sociable Cider Werks. Humans and dogs of all ages are welcome at this event!

Dogs of all types and sizes are welcome as long as they are well behaved.
All dogs must be up to date on vaccinations.
No flexible leashes will be allowed in the event area.
