From Holly Shopoff: With the help of fellow animal lovers, Pit Bulls can now be adopted from Lorain County Dog kennel by Lorain county residents but must be pulled by a rescue first. Residents outside the county can adopt directly. Thanks for your support everyone!!!

I've recently learned about the policy that once a Pit Bull is in Lorain County Dog Kennel that they cannot be adopted back out to Lorain County residents. I believe that the rescues should be allowed to pull the dog from the kennel and adopt them back out into the county. They are able to do background checks and home checks before placing the dogs, unlike the kennel. This would hopefully eliminate the problem of Pit Bulls going to bad owners. These dogs aren't getting the chance to prove to our county that if they have good owners they are good dogs. Innocent dogs are being killed because of these policies. This change could save lives. Think about the lives lost. Please help stop the discrimination and do right by these dogs.

      Its not the dogs fault. Blame the owner, and punish the owner. Don't punish the poor pup over something it had no control over.

      I am a fellow dog owner and although I do not have Pitbull I believe they are wonderful breeds. It's not the breed, it's the people that raise them to be vicious. Without passing a law stating that a Pitt can be adopted back out into society, how many Pitts are we losing a year that are truely wonderful animals. Think about it!

      Very important to bring awareness to the Pittie breed.
