I am new to this and don't know what I'm doing, so bear with me. Our rescue group works with a local dog pound finding forever homes for the dogs and puppies that are brought in by the ACO. I will be attending a city council meeting where an employee of the gas company will be asking that something be done about pit bulls in town, many of which are chained to or near the gas meter. We have no ordinance regarding pit bulls, so I can see something coming. I would like to be able to suggest something that will benefit the dogs as well as the gas company. We have dog fighting here in the Mississippi Delta, and many poor pitties live on 3 foot long chains forced to eat, sleep, and poop within that area. To my knowledge, not much is done by authorities to try to combat dog fighting. I never hear of arrests or seizures of dogs. I need wording that will force the people who have pit bulls to act responsibly and provide a better place for these dogs to live or, better yet, to not get one to begin with unless they want to keep it inside to be a part of their family. I have seen many pit bulls or mixes in my 14 years of working with the dog pound and not one of them that I can remember was people agressive and not all of them were dog agressive. Can anyone advise me where to go to get wording to suggest for an ordinance?
