Captured Pit Bulls Need...Peanut Butter?!

Posted By on Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 12:25 PM


Any of you animal-lovers heading down yonder to downtown to the All-Star hoopla this weekend might consider bringing along a tub or two of creamy peanut butter.

You know those 378 pit bulls taken into custody by the Humane Society of Missouri following Wednesday's bust of allegedly the biggest dog-fighting ring in U.S. history?

Well, that's 378 pit bulls who could really get busy with some creamy peanut butter.

Apparently pit bulls dig licking peanut butter out of jars and large toys. It takes a long time. It keeps them occupied. That way they don't bite or fight. (Is it just me, or does owning a pit bull sound really messy?)

So Purina and the St. Louis Petlover Coalition, which were already sponsoring an event this Saturday, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. at 700 Market Street, are now hoping good Samaritans will help the rescued pit bulls by dropping off any of the following: large box fans; sheets; full-size towels; blankets; shredded paper; newspaper; sturdy dog toys, and of course a can or two of PB. Make sure it's creamy.

Don't believe me? See for yourself.
