Amoré Pit Bull Rescue

Join Amoré Pit Bull Rescue next weekend for food, fun and games while raising funds for animals in need.

The only Pit Bull rescue in the Tulsa area, Amoré is dedicated to changing the conversation about Pit Bulls, educating the community about the breed and finding homes for their rescued dogs.

Misty Bilby, who founded Amoré in 2014. says sometimes when they are showing their dogs available for adoption, members of the public will sometimes comment that they are wasting their time.

“It’s really sad because they are really good breed,” Bilby said. “They are a very sweet breed of dog.”

Pits in Paradise will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15 in OU Founders Hall, 4502 E. 41st St., and will feature a sit down dinner catered by Ludger’s, a silent auction and trivia.

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased in advance online at amorepitbullrescue.com/pip.

For the past 100 years the Tulsa SPCA has been giving back to the community and its animals. In celebration of its centennial year, the organization will be celebrating with a variety of amazing events for the community.

So let’s show them some love and support by attending one (or all!) of the following events this summer.

Kicking things off is the Paws & Pictures event. Bring your family, furry members included, to the Admiral Twin Drive-In on June 20 for games and live music followed by two feature films when the sun goes down.

Doors will open at 7 p.m., movies will begin at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. Pets must be leashed.

Proceeds from the ticket and concession sales will benefit the operations at TSPCA.

On June 21, head on over to KingsPointe Village for a benefit concert featuring the Easy Street Band starting at 7:30 p.m.

TSPCA volunteers will be collecting dog and cat food, blankets, treats, toys, bowls, leashes, collars and distilled water. They will also be selling their anniversary T-shirts and cookbooks.

KingsPointe Village is located at the corner of 61st Street and Yale Avenue.

Wrapping up the celebration is a Bingo Bash on July 20.

In addition to bingo, there will be a silent auction, door prizes, wine grab bag, restaurant pull and cash bar.

The event will be from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at The Campbell Hotel, 2636 E. 11th St. Tickets are $30 each or $25 for four or more.

And of course, if you are not able to attend any of the events, donations are always welcomed.
