A message to treat pit bulls better was being spread before a rap concert at the Century Center Thursday night.
Animal advocate Bill Sykes handed out fliers to concert goers who were waiting to see 2 Chainz in concert.
Sykes is reminding people about the importance of taking care of the pit bulls, which often get a bad rap.
One of his goals is to inform them about St. Joseph County's current dangerous dog ordinance, that does not allow local shelters to put adopt out pit bulls.
Sykes also distributed information about low cost spay and neuter options.
“I'm trying to explain to them why, if you know someone that is breeding these dogs in their backyard or basement and you are not a professional breeder, that's when it has to stop. Too many puppies are not being vaccinated properly lot of inbreeding, results in aggressiveness, dogs that sickly”
This is the third concert Sykes has been to to hand out fliers.
It is part of an effort to stop dog fighting, and create awareness about the problem.
