  1. It's sad how the MSPCA is actually blaming not the breeders, fighters and unprepared owners who dump their dogs for this overpopulation, but rather the people who would rather adopt either a safer dog or no dog at all! They are saying it's my fault, your fault, and every non-pit owner's fault for a problem that they keep feeding anyway. They provide free veterinary service for pit bulls, but do they provide free veterinary service to the countless animals who have been attacked by pit bulls? Who's discriminating now?

  2. All the double speak really does boil down to blaming all non-pit bull owners for not adopting!

    What nutters do best besides killing pets and destroying neighborhoods is LAY BLAME.

  3. outstanding!

    what is true in MA is true throughout the US and most likely canada and the UK too. i would only add that the pit bull rescue industry is also a very different kind of failure. i don't know of an example in massachusetts but the honesty of a pit nutter rescue angel in alabama was a real eye opener for me. JESSICA CABLER opposed the dangerous dog law being proposed because it would put her pit bull RESCUE out of business!

  4. Some people are not fooled these humane groups, particularly ones that are reckless enough to bring pit bulls into schools for "breed ambassador" routines. The idiots below actually used a pit bull to teach dog bite safety prevention.

    Pit bulls banned from La Grande school district
    The Associated Press Oct 25, 2011

    “I love dogs as much as the next person,” Superintendent Larry Glaze said. “I grew up with a dog and I have a dog in my home now. I just feel that we should use common sense when bringing animals into schools.”
    President Cathie Falck of the Blue Mountain Humane Association said that’s dog discrimination — any dog could be dangerous and individual animals shouldn’t be judged based on their breed.
    “We will not be providing dog bite-safety instruction in the La Grande School District,” she said. “A breed ban is wrong, it is unfair. We feel that we need to take a stand. We should not be condemning a dog just because of its breed.”

  5. We definitely need a DBO Watchlist for these radicalized "Humane" and Animal Control orgs that adopt out/traffic Maulers.

    The public needs to know that these organizations have failed in their public safety obligations and view their wild claims with skepticism.

  6. Please check out this related news story from Pittsburgh.

    Vet Raises Concerns About Aggressive Dogs Up For Adoption

    “NEW KENSINGTON (KDKA) — A veterinarian was attacked by a pit bull at a local shelter. A doctor and a former staff member call the facility a “ticking bomb” saying many of the dogs are capable of attacking anyone that takes them home. Dr. Becky Morrow calls this situation dangerous, not just for shelter workers, but to the animal-loving public. The pictures show the face of veterinarian Dr. Morrow ripped open by a pit bull.”

  7. Thank you Packhorse, this was VERY interesting reading!

    Violent dogs offered to the public by Animal Protectors Shelter, with cheerful stories and no warnings. One of the shelter dogs, Tracker, has been at the shelter for THREE YEARS. Tracker is described as a "shelter favorite" although the description states "Tracker has been with us for three years because he is not fond of other animals. He has shown the ability to be around some other dogs, but has not made a lot of friends at the shelter. Tracker can only be placed in a home with no other pets. We require a fenced in yard, preferably a privacy fence and an owner who has an ability to read doggie body language." Tracker bit the foot off another dog.

    Animal Protectors might add a huge insurance policy as a requirement for adopting Tracker.

  8. Nutters in the Shelters within a city where Pits are the leading biter by a mile…. It's almost as if they are begging for BSL since they won't regulate themselves.

    Sue them into oblivion and jail them once the inevitable lifeflight comes…

  9. Memphis Shelter workers working with area dog fighters….

    Ever wonder how things could be so screwed up in some cities?!? I am betting they don't have this problem in Denver.

    Some employees at the Memphis Animal Shelter had ties to dogfighting rings and operated outside city rules and procedures, according to a study of the shelter’s operations conducted by the Memphis Rotary Club.


  10. California has sustained 30 Pit Bull DBRFs since proscribing BSL, so lets rehabilitate Pits with aggression issues and place them into neighborhoods!

    Meet Sheltering Oaks Sanctuary in Lompoc, CA

    “Sheltering Oaks Sanctuary” to provide rescue, rehabilitation and adoption for the pit bulls, senior and other high-risk dogs that otherwise would be euthanized at shelters, or die on the street, or at the hands of abusive owners, Anderson said.

    Rehabilitating the dogs, many of which arrive at the sanctuary anxious and aggressive toward people and other dogs, doesn’t happen overnight. It takes patience, gentle voices and treats for good behavior

    Remember, human aggressive Pit Bulls were always culled…

  11. Add Milwauke to the A/C Watchlist:

    Milwaukee's chief dog catcher just proclaimed that "Pit Bull Attacks are rare" despite Pitties producing almost five times the bites tthan the next highest breed. Additionally, Pitties now consume 40 percent of A/C resources while the Pit breeders and dogfighters laugh all the way to the bank. They have Milwaukee all aboard the Pit Bull crazy train and are driving it straight to maulville….

    2010 Pit -breeder gramps kills his grandson…Later he blamed his son for leaving the child with him. F-Minus goes out to Lake County Animal Shelter

    Jacob Bisbee

    2-years old | Concord, CA

    Jacob Bisbee, 2-years old, was mauled to death by his step-grandfather's pit bulls. Police said the dogs attacked the boy when he walked into the garage. The victim's grandmother and uncle were in the house at the time, as was the boy's brother. The dogs' owner, Steven Hayashi, was not home during the incident. Within hours, authorities arrested Hayashi on suspicion of child endangerment and owning a mischievous animal that causes great bodily injury or death. The three offending pit bulls were seized along with two more that Hayashi kept in his yard. The next day, from a jailhouse interview, Hayashi admitted that one of the dogs had killed his pet Chihuahua a year earlier. But he said he never believed his dogs would attack Jacob. He also said that he ended up with 5 pit bulls because the pit bull he adopted from a Lake County animal shelter was pregnant. [source citations

    The dogs were taken to Triangle Pet in McKees Rocks but have since been returned to Porter, a move that police said was unauthorized.
    The Northern Regional police chief said Triangle Pet was supposed to hold the two dogs until it was proved that they are licensed in Allegheny County. Porter's wife allegedly picked the dogs up Wednesday night before that could be established.

  14. Pit Bull adoption turns into an episode of "Wild Kingdom"

    Alexandria woman forced to shoot, kill her dog to save boyfriend from mauling — 24 January 2012, 9:37 am By: David Sachs

    “An Alexandria woman was forced to shoot her dog dead as it mauled her boyfriend at the couple’s Eisenhower Avenue home January 18. The unidentified man was moving the dog’s toy with his foot when the pit-bull mix lunged at him and began biting, said Patrick Cole, spokesman for the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. While waiting for police to arrive, the owner tried to pin his pet to the ground. Unable to subdue the dog, he told his girlfriend to shoot it in the head. The dog had a history of aggression, including multiple biting incidents and “resource guarding” that went unreported by its owners, according to animal control officers who investigated the matter. The couple adopted the dog from Friends of Homeless Animals of Northern Virginia last August, which received the dog from Prince George’s County animal control, where the stray had been impounded the three times.”

  15. Very good article. If you look at some of these "rescues" they have pit bulls that have lived most of their lives at a rescue. Is that humane? If you watch Pit bulls and Parolees, 200 dogs and 5 employees; it would be next to impossible to feed and water and clean 40 dogs per worker per day; so the animals are in cages 24 hours a day. And they would get no training at all, if it's possible to train a pit. What is the use of keeping them alive,(except to make money on a phony show). This entire rescue scam is a big money maker, just as the so called "homeless" business is in urban centers.
