Sportswear Company Teams Up With For Pits’ Sake to KNOXX Out Dog Fighting
KNOXX Gear designs new clothing line to help KNOXX Out Dog Fighting
LOS GATOS, CALIFORNIA, October 3, 2008 – For Pits’ Sake, Inc., a 501(c)3 non profit organization, and KNOXX Gear today announced that they are teaming up to KNOXX Out Dog Fighting.
KNOXX Gear is a popular casual and sports apparel company that truly captures the urban culture lifestyle. KNOXX Gear caters to the Mixed Martial Arts, fitness, skateboarding and hip-hop industries. “KNOXX is not only a brand it has also been a catalyst for a world-wide movement to open minds,” said a spokesperson for KNOXX Gear. “Dog fighting is a form of animal cruelty and we are proud to be involved in this anti-dogfighting campaign by creating a line of clothing that serves a specific purpose…stopping abuse.”
The award-winning “Knock Out Dog Fighting” program is an unprecedented awareness and educational campaign, designed by For Pits’ Sake, Inc. founder Kris Crawford, to combat the cruel and inhumane activity of dog fighting. “When it’s not on the front page of the news, people often forget about the dogs that are forced into a life of violence and suffering. These dogs have no voice to cry out for help,” said Crawford. “I am thrilled about this partnership with KNOXX Gear because it will help us in our continued mission to stop the abuse and to give these dog’s a voice.
The members of “Knock Out Dog Fighting” produce Public Service Announcements (PSAs), visit schools, children’s groups and youth in juvenile detention centers with the message that dog fighting is not “cool” nor is it a symbol of strength, power or greatness. The goal of this anti-dogfighting campaign is to shed more light on the prevalence of dog fighting, its overall effect on the community and to “Knock Out” the social acceptance of the barbaric activity.
The KNOXX Out Dog Fighting shirts are available on both the Knock Out Dog Fighting (http://www.knockoutdogfighting.org) and KNOXX Gear (http://knoxxgear.com )web sites with proceeds from the sale of the shirts going to “Knock Out Dog Fighting”.For more information about the Knock Out Dog Fighting program, go to www.KnockOutDogFighting.org
