It is crucial that anyone who adopts a Pit Bull has a background check and that they are checked upon after they rescue the pet to make sure they are not using them to fight.

All of these dogs deserve a good loving home! They are not cruel dogs, like they have been labeled by individuals as an aggressive dog!

The story stated on here is not completely true or accurate . Painting the pit bull as fighters was MANY years ago. SINCE THEN early 1900s these dogs were used as " nanny dogs". THAT IS TRUE !!!
Offering free pits is inviting more criminals to get their. Hands on these dogs. They HAVE TO BE ABUSED & MISTREATED TO TEACH THEM TO FIGHT !!! These dogs were used in the 1800s in the wars as carriers & a part of the team !. They are NOT fighting dogs , with the exception of those who beat them & force THEM to fight, by starving & beating . Unbelievable cruelty !!!!!!!!!!
95% of those dogs are homed just do to a little love.
Doing this to them is insane !!!
They need homes, not tossed to someone as a piece of meat !!!!!!!!!

You don't just give animals away especially pitbulls you know there are terrible people out there who are fighting dogs. What the hell is wrong with California and its city officials and its government you guys need to get a grip remember you live in the United States. We are supposed to be civilized and care about our animals as well. There are too many animals being killed and abused in state run shelters. California is a disgrace fix your system stop hiring whatever walks look for people who care about the animals welfare.

It is impossible to know when one of these animals will snap and kill. At least a guns have a safety mechanism. Giving them to an unknowing public is a nightmare waiting to happen.
