Petition Closed

Animal Friends of the Valley has it written in their policy that nobody can adopt a Pitbull if they have children under the age of twelve years old, and if they have one other dog. It is also mentioned in their AFV SCFA Animal Shelter Policies and Procedures, that "Staff is to discourage Pitbull adoptions." This is breed discrimination! Pitbulls are being labeled as "Not Adoptable" simply because they are pitbulls! Up to 74% of the adoptable dogs were Pitbulls. Something needs to be done! Please stand up for these helpless Pitbulls unfortunately are placed at Animal Friends of the Valleys. This discrimination also includes Pitbull owners, who can't foster or adopt. Please take a moment to stop breed discrimination at AFV.
