Pitbull Facts

Pit bulls are euthanized more than any other breed - only 1 in 600 pit bulls that enters an animal shelter will leave alive. Please have your pit bull or pit bull mix spayed or neutered today. By not breeding your pet pit bull or pit bull mix, you will be doing your part to help control the pit bull overpopulation problem and help keep pit bulls and mixes out of shelters and out of the hands of people who want to do harm to them.
