Generally it looks as if as a lot as 90 % of the canines at my native animal shelter are Pit Bulls. Sadly this stigmatized breed is usually the final to be adopted due to the unhealthy publicity they get.
The Brookhaven Animal Shelter in New York has been overwhelmed with Pit Bulls in recent times. At the moment they’ve 140 out there for adoption, excess of they will realistically undertake out.
Due to the shelter’s overpopulation downside, city officers have teamed up with Assist the Animals Fund Inc. to create the Brookhaven Bully Alliance. This system can pay different shelters and rescue organizations $250 for every Pit Bull or Pit Bull combine they take out of Brookhaven’s shelter and decide to putting in a eternally dwelling.
I believe it’s nice that Brookhaven is dedicating cash to getting Pit Bulls out of their shelter, although in some methods they’re simply shifting the canines round. Actually transferring Pit Bulls to new shelters or rescue teams could result in their adoption, however the Brookhaven Bully Alliance program doesn’t get on the root of the issue—enhancing the Pit Bull’s fame and selling accountable possession. As a substitute, I’d like to see the cash go in the direction of optimistic Pit Bull PR, accountable possession schooling, or a crackdown on canine combating.
What do you suppose would assist Brookhaven’s Pit Bull overpopulation downside?
