Why A Pit Fix?
Currently pit bulls are the most common animal surrendered in the nation’s shelters. They account for 40% – 60% or more of shelter population. More and more pit bulls are bred each year adding to the already staggering population numbers. Irresponsible breeders push their puppies off as soon as possible—sometimes as early as six weeks, which prevents the puppy from learning proper social behavior from its mother and littermates and can result in a dog with serious behavior issues. If they can’t sell the puppies right away, it costs nothing to dump the unwanted puppies at the local animal shelter, clearing out the kennels for a new litter. Join us in celebrating the breed by focusing on lifesaving solutions for our pit bulls.
