PPLA attended the Stand Up For Pits event this past weekend hosted by Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory) at the Hollywood Improv. The event included a dog adoption fair held at the neighboring Improv Lab, followed by a red carpet, silent, auction, and comedy show to help raise awareness and funds for Angel City Pits rescue. The event even feature a kissing booth with its star dog, Angel!
100% of ticket sales and silent auction proceeds went to Angel City Pits and auction items included generous donations from celebrity supporters like Fiona Apple, Alanis Morrissette, Lisa Kudrow, the cast of Cougartown and more.
The stand up performances included Stand Up For Pits founder and organizer, Rebecca Corry (King of Queens, Big Fat Liar), Rob Delaney (Chelsea Lately), Brody Stevens (Chelsea Lately, The Hangover Part II) and Eddie Pepitone (Old School, The Muppets. Corry’s inspiration to create Stand Up For Pits is her therapy dog Angel and Angel’s incredible journey. Angel was found walking around south central LA with another dog, both brutally abused. Only Angel survived and through rescues and foster homes, Angel made her way to Corry. Now Angel travels the country with Corry as pampered as a dog can be, all while raising awareness to protect other pits!
Corry plans to take the Stand Up For Pits show on the road and tour cities throughout the country to raise money for Pit Bull rescues & demolish the stigma against this truly lovable breed!
