Sponsor a free showing of "Beyond the Myth" at a local theater.

WHEC news in Rochester, NY demonstrated some very poor judgement this week in airing an irresponsible news story propagating the myth that "Pit bull" type dogs are inherently dangerous animals. This news story will serve only to discourage potential adopters who would be responsible pet owners from bringing a pit bull mix into their home, and cause the unnecessary destruction of animals in shelters who just need a family to love them. It also increases the hysteria which leads to unnecessary violence on the part of law enforcement and the community when fear takes over for common sense.
