Kathleen McBride, a concerned pitbull lover, started a petition to Riverside County Animal Control asking them to remove an emaciated dog from the care of owners using her for breeding. After the petition gained over 715 supporters, the owner relinquished the dog to the animal control officers.

A poor pitbull is suffering, her owners do not keep her as a pet, they use her for breeding. She has never seen love or attention and is in desperate need of a loving home. She is a kind dog and deserves a better life. Her owners have to be reminded to give her food and water. Her ribs are sticking out and her stomach is sunken in. I have contacted Riverside County Animal Control, PETA, and various other rescues. I am always referred back to animal control because the fact that the dog is on private property. The dog can be removed by an animal control officer if there are signs of neglect and/or abuse.  Animal Control has been out to inspect the dog and have deemed her healthy and in good condition, with NO signs of neglect. Because Riverside County Animal Control is stating that the animal is in good condition they will not remove from the home so that I may place her in a rescue. Please look at the pictures and tell me how this emaciated dog is in "good condition"

Remove emaciated dog from breeders

A poor pitbull is suffering because Riverside County Animal Control is stating that the animal is in good condition and that as long as she has food and water they cannot remove her from the home.

      Hello. We have impounded this dog. Is anyone on this petition list interested in adopting? Fostering? The dog is still a little underweight, but friendly. We still need to do a full assessment. The owner signed the dog over to us (Riverside County Animal Services); We had been monitoring the dog's health closely. Contact Public Information Officer John Welsh if you have an interest in adopting/fostering/rescuing. John is at jcwelsh@rivcocha.org or direct line is 951-358-7045.

      It is sickening to see a dog or any animal in such a state of health! The owners should be punished! This dog needs love and FOOD! If it stays then it could die which is murder. The owner should receive an attempted murder charge! SET THIS ANIMAL FREE!
