Join My Pit Bull is Family to celebrate our 10th year anniversary!
We’re taking over Sociable Cider Werks on October 3, 2021.

Join us for our 10th Anniversary Canine Carnival in honor of all things dogs!

My Pit Bull is Family is a Minneapolis-based non-profit organization with one mission – to keep families together by ending housing and insurance discrimination and by providing community-based resources. Through our work we are able to keep families together by providing the nation’s largest rental database that accepts all dogs, assisting families through our North Minneapolis Pet Resource Center, and through our many educational community events across the country. Join us in celebrating all things dog on October 3th at Sociable Cider Werks. Humans and dogs of all ages are welcome at this event!

Health & Safety:
We will be watching updates and recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control leading up to the event. More information will follow as we near the event date and have a more accurate idea of the precautions necessary. Our Canine Carnival is held outdoors at Sociable Cider Werks where social distancing, proper hand sanitation and mask wearing will be strongly encouraged.
