If any of you read my golden retriever articles, you’ll know that I love dogs and The Big Bang Theory. Now, the Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco recently showed support for the Stand Up for Pits Foundation.
I’m sure most of you know the undeserved reputation that pit bulls get from the media. But if you don’t, pit bulls are widely thought of as a “dangerous” breed. Pit bulls are my birth mother’s favorite breed. In my lifetime, my birth giver has owned many of them. I even used some as pillows when I was in diapers.
The thing is, pit bulls are large and muscular. Some people use them to fight against other pit bulls. This is abuse and shouldn’t happen. It is the owner that is the problem, not the breed.
Kaley and Pit Bulls
On her Instagram account, the actress revealed that she hosted an event for the organization. In one of her photos, Cuoco could be seen carrying an adorable black Pit bull named Todd. “Todd the pit is not impressed in this photo,” she joked before using the hashtag. “Don’t bully my breed.”
In another snap, Cuoco introduced a Pit bull named Sterling who was abused. “He is 100% healthy now, happy, adorable, hilarious, and deserves an amazing home,” she wrote. Cuoco also showed off her white t-shirt which she wore exclusively for the event. On the shirt is a photo of a Pit bull named Angel.
Stand Up for Pits Foundation
Stand Up for Pits Foundation discourages discrimination and abuse of Pit Bulls, as well as other types of four-legged creatures. Throughout the past couple of years, the foundation has been tapping Cuoco to host the Stand Up for Pit live event. “We all thank you Kaley, for doing what you can to make communities safer for humans and pets…” Rebecca Corry, the founder, wrote. She was inspired to start the foundation after adopting her dog, Angel, who was terribly abused by other humans.
“Because of Angel, I live a purpose filled life. She is a gift and light in this world. I love her so much it hurts, and I’m honored to be owned by her,” Corry wrote.
Meanwhile, when Angel passed away earlier this year, Cuoco made it a point to pay tribute to her, according to Metro UK. “Rest in peace, Angel. My heart is so heavy right now. This dog was more human and true than any of us,” she wrote alongside a collage of herself with the dog.
As I grew up, I got tired of all the negativity surrounding pit bulls. Some of the nicest dogs I have ever met were pit bulls.
I have a lot of respect for Kaley. She’s a talented and hilarious actress. I now have even more respect for her. Kaley owns a couple of dogs, so this foundation was probably something right up her alley. I hope her work with the charity continues to go well.
