Second Chance Sundays are a great way for people to support their favorite team and at the same time do something positive for dogs in need.
Allentown, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
Sports Blitz, a Lehigh Valley licensed sportswear, novelty and memorabilia merchandiser, is teaming up with local fans to gang tackle animal cruelty by donating 10 percent of its proceeds the second Sunday of every month during the upcoming professional football season to the Pennsylvania SPCA to help give homeless and abused dogs a second chance.
Second Chance Sundays will feature sales and promotions of Sports Blitz's array of authentic, licensed, on-field apparel and collectibles at their family-owned stores in Easton, PA, at 3071 William Penn Plaza, and in Whitehall, PA at 2544 MacArthur Road at the MacArthur Towne Center.
The Pennsylvania SPCA will attend the kickoff events for Second Chance Sundays on September 13 from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm at both Sports Blitz locations with adoptable Second Chance Dogs.
The Second Chance Dogs of the Pennsylvania SPCA are Pit Bulls who have been rescued and rehabilitated from fighting rings and other abuses. They arrive at the Pennsylvania SPCA suffering from severe neglect, starvation, cruelty and injury, often as victims of illegal dog fighting operations. Pit Bulls also carry the added stigma from negative and erroneous media characterizations. Given a second chance, these dogs make loyal and loving companions.
"We're thrilled to see compassionate sports fans step up to help tackle dog fighting and other animal abuse in Pennsylvania," said Pennsylvania SPCA Chief Executive Officer Sue Cosby. "Second Chance Sundays are a great way for people to support their favorite team and at the same time do something positive for dogs in need."
"We hope that increasing public awareness of the efforts of the Pennsylvania SPCA and supporting the work they do will help bring an end to animal cruelty and provide homes for abandoned and abused pets," said Justin Madaus, Sports Blitz Chief Operating Officer.
Second Chance Sundays begin September 13, week-one of the 2009 professional football season, and return every second Sunday of each month throughout the 2009 season.
