Change Genesee County Animal Control's Breed Discrimination Policy.
A lot of great dogs have lost their lives just because they are, or even just look like, Pit Bulls. The counties current policy is to NOT adopt out or transfer ANY dogs this applies to. This is not fair and can be changed by simply educatiion of the breed, utilizing the state's animal rescues and/or using foster homes. Facts: Of the 3758 dogs GCAC received in 2010, 469 were RTO (returned to owner). Of the remaining 3286, 2325 were euth'ed. In other words, 70.7%. Only 50 were transferred out.

These organizations need our support in order to save lives like intended.
