Tell New Hanover County in Wilmington NC to stop euthanizing pit bulls and chows! - The Petition Site
Tell New Hanover County that euthanizing a specific breed is wrong!
New Hanover County Animal Control has allowed this breed specific murder go on far to long and we have to do something about it.
These pit bulls,chows and mixes of the breed are not allowed to be adopted out at this facility,even puppies are killed because of what the staff decides they are. New Hanover County Animal Control does not even do dna tests on these animals to see if they really are the breed that is deemed "un adoptable" ,this shelter claims they do not have the funds for it,but yet they charge 150 dollars and climbing for people to get their pet out of the pound. Everyone in this county has to pay a registration fee to have their pets in the first place. Where is all this money going?
I called to find out why they dont adopt out these breeds and the answer i got was simply"we cant adopt out those kinds of dogs".......i think this county deserves more of an explanation!
Something has to change,lets start here! Dozens of helpless animals are killed every week there just because of what they are,this is a horrible rule and it needs to be done away with. It is simply peoples ignorance on these breeds that needs to be changed,if people would just opened their eyes and see what great dogs these breeds really are tons of lives could be saved.These breeds are killed even if they are friendly,even if they have been family pets,they are killed because of ignorance! Help me help them and sign today! Please go to www.nhcgov.com to review the rules and regulations of this facility.
