A pit bull dog show in Snyder helped raise awareness for Autism.

The 2nd Annual Bullies for Autism raised money for the Autism Speaks Foundation while educating the public on the disorder.

The organizers say they wanted to bring together their love of pit bulls while helping out those with Autism because their nephew has Asperger Syndrome.

The event brought pit bull owners from around the nation, with some dog owners having their own ties to the disorder. But others say that it's not about knowing someone with it, it's about doing what they can to help.
