Gamand says she admittedly had prejudices about the breed, but she partnered with Second Chance Rescue, Sean Casey Animal Rescue, and Animal Haven to do a campaign to bring awareness for the 1 million pit bulls who are euthanized in American every year. The result are adorable faces wearing the headgear that festival and Hannibal have made famous.
