Stop the automatic kill policy on Pit Bullls


In Saginaw County, MI You can not adopt a Pit Bull. If one gets picked up by the pound it gets automatic euthanasia if not claimed by their owners. I think all types of dogs should get a fair chance to get adopted, and not just judged by their breed. Any dog can be a great dog if its raised right.

Stop the automatic kill policy on Pit Bullls

In Saginaw County, MI You can not adopt a Pit Bull. If one gets picked up by the pound it gets automatic euthanasia if not claimed by their owners. Many people are letting the dogs and puppies go on the streets because they cant afford to have them in their home. Some puppies will never be held or loved just because animal control gets to them before someone with a good heart does. Why is all of this happening though? The price of your insurance almost DOUBLES if you own a Pit Bull or any other type of "dangerous" dog. I think all types of dogs should get a fair chance to get adopted, loved and raised in a good home. No dog should be judged by their breed. Just like no person should be judged by their race. Any dog can be a great dog if its raised right.
