Animal Shelters all Over the World

Give Pitbulls and other Big Dog Breeds a Chance at Being Adopted

    1. Petition by

      Escalon, CA

I volunteer at my local animal shelter and sometimes it is sad. We have to go to other shelters just to resuce Pit Bull, German Sheperad, Chow and many other breeds that only have 48 Hours or less at KIll Shelters. Other dogs have at least 1 week. I know, for example, Pit Bulls are used for Dog Fighting but If you can save that dog, I say do it! Punish the Owner, Not The Dog! A couple of weeks ago we went to a Kill Shelter and we found out the day before 16 Pit Bull Puppies were put to sleep for No Reason. I know that Shelters need space but Please give them a Chance. My Friend Rescued a Pit Bull that had been trained to fight. She has a 5 year old daughter and he lets her ride on his back and has NEVER bit a person. One day they were sitting in there house and someone broke in. They heard Duke Bark but keep going in side. The robber then shot a hole in the wall. Duke barked at him one more time and he saw the dog and the Robber Ran away. Tjis is what I am talking about. These dogs aren't that bad. They actually were breed to sit in Kids Cribs and protect the children. Please help them! I know not everyone likes them and I know a lot of people are afraid but they are not always like that :) They are actually very loyal and loving dogs :) Thank you for signing or even reading my Petintion to help save some of the Misunderstood dogs around the world :)  ***I may only be 12 years old, but that doesnt mean I can't make a difference in the world***

      animals have rights just as humans do. I feel animals have the right to be loved just as a human does. it's not an animals fault that humans are ignorant against certain breeds. don't punish the breed punish the humans. if anything when a large breed or any breed for that matter make the new owner watch a video on the breed they want to adopt. teach them about that breed b4 and maybe it will stop the ignorance. also if someone is continuing to have problems fix it where they are not allowed to have animals period. BLAME THE HUMAN NOT THE ANIMAL. PUNISH THE HUMAN NOT THE ANIMAL.

      Because, Every living thing, everywhere in this world, deserves a fair shot. They deserve a chance at being Loved, and Giving Love back. They are innocent, and deserve to be treated fairly.

      Thank you all for signing! With every signature we get closer to reaching the goal. :) Today when I got onto my computer, one of the head stories was about how a Pit Bull mix, recently adopted, rescued a baby from being stolen right out of her mothers arms. Without that dog she could have died! This is just one more example of how these dogs REALLY act. Loyal and Loving.... Just something to think about ;)
