Ban "Backyard Breeding" in NC

This petition had 2,322 supporters

85 percent or more of Dogs being euthanized in NC shelters are "pit"  or "pit mix".  People are breeding them and selling them on Facebook , Parking lots, Yardsale sites etc. with NO regard for the safety of WHERE these pups end up, solely for "extra cash". *UNTAXED, UNVACCINATED and UNREGULATED .

Much as us "dog people" are against "breed specific regulations", this simply has to STOP.

These dogs are labeled  "rescue only",  there are NOT ENOUGH RESCUES to handle the sheer amounts needing saving.  Landlords, insurance companies etc, usually do not allow the breed, even "mixed", thus compounding the problem.

 The NC Dept of AG ststistics show "cost per animal handled" the shelters/euthanization is costing NC taxpayers huge amounts of money, while backyard breeders are absconding with unreported CASH and creating havoc within the shelter and rescue cmmunities. This simply CANNOT CONTINUE. 

Please REQUIRE ALL Pitbull and Pitmix BREEDERS regardless of the amount of female dogs they breed, to HAVE AND SHOW A BREEDERS LICENSE # or face severe fines.

The licensing fees can be applied to low cost-low income Spay/Neuter programs and help further allieviate this problem.
