VIGIL

About the Event

Join us at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre for the 6th Annual Pitbull Awareness Light for the Lost Candlelight Vigil on Saturday, November 3rd.

Hosted by Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, the Candlelight Vigil is an opportunity to celebrate the dogs FTTF has rescued, but it is also a chance for us to take a moment and recognize the pitbull overpopulation problem and honor the over one million pitbulls euthanized in animal control facilities all across this county.

What is the “Light for the Lost Candlelight Vigil”?
In 2014, Jason Flatt, founder of Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, decided he wanted to bring awareness to the pitbull overpopulation problem and the sad state of affairs for pitbulls all across the country in a big way. Friends to the Forlorn had been working for years to rescue pitbulls all across the metro Atlanta area, as well as creating its “Beat the Heat” spay & neuter program to help reduce the unwanted pet population. Even more, Jason wanted the public to understand the magnitude of the problem Friends to the Forlorn and other pitbull-based rescues were facing.

How big is the actual pitbull overpopulation problem? Why are pitbulls not making it out of shelters? What can people do to help solve this overwhelming silent crisis among our favorite breed?

From that one idea, the Forlorn Family sprang into action. How can we represent the large number of pitbulls euthanized in animal control facilities nationwide while also celebrating those we have been able to save? From reflection on that question, the VIGIL was born!

Each year, the Vigil has grown in size and scope. We have seen the word for this event spread like wildfire among the rescue, pitbull and animal lover communities. Friends to the Forlorn will continue to spread the word and educate the community on the seriousness of the situation we face and how we can all can be part of the solution.
