Each year, 1.2 million dogs are euthanized, approximately 40% of whom are Pit Bulls. This means that nearly half a million Pit Bull-type dogs are killed in shelters annually. Of all the common dog types to appear in shelters, Pit Bulls are by far the most likely to be euthanized, while they’re only the third most likely to be adopted.


Every hour in this country, more dogs and cats are born than humans. When supply is greater than demand, the extra dog end up in shelters, and often are euthanized for lack of space. As long as dog owners refuse to spay or neuter their dogs in the State of Georgia, overpopulation will be a problem. There is kinder, simpler solution to the euthanasia that must take place in overcrowded animal shelters. The solution is to spay and neuter our bullies. Please make the choice to alter your dog. There are many resources available for owners to receive low-cost or free spay/neuter.
