Join PBRC in a Call to Action against Pit Bull Overpopulation

If you have a pit bull, you know that pit bull overpopulation is a tragedy in this country. You know that adoption/rescue alone is not the answer. It is estimated that in 2004 as many as 2.3 million of the 8.8 million dogs killed in shelters nationwide were pit bulls. That's 6,000 pit bulls euthanized per day! The most effective solution is to address the problem where it begins, by encouraging spay/neuter.

In recognition of the 13th annual Spay Day USA , being held February 27, 2007, PBRC is challenging YOU to get involved!

Spay Day USA is an annual campaign of the Doris Day Animal Foundation, in collaboration with the Humane Society of the United States, to shine a national spotlight on spay/neuter as the simple, humane solution to the tragedy of pet overpopulation. Spay/neuter saves lives and money by reducing the number of homeless animals. Spaying and neutering is good for you, your pet and your community!

FEATURED PIT BULL SPECIFIC PROGRAM

Spay/Neuter Kansas City is a partner with the Pit Bull Alliance Group, an association of local animal

welfare organizations and concerned individuals working together to address the over-population of bully

breed dogs in the greater Kansas City area and to mitigate the negative image associated with bully

breeds through training and education.

A goal of SNKC and the Pit Bull Alliance is to see that 70% of all bully breed dogs in the greater Kansas City

area are Spayed/Neutered by the end of 2008. Of the 2183 Spay and Neuters performed from

September 2005 - August 2006, 14% were Pit Bulls.

Yeah that is great to have a spay day!!!!!

We have a mobil vet clinic that comes to the reservations but last year was a disappointment. The vets took care of the humane societies dogs and cats. The Humane society is not on the rez. so the low income people from the rez could not get their animals taken care. I'm going to volunteer this year and hopefully stop that from happening again.

The reason I found it so upsetting is that the HumaneSociety charges up to 150$ for a dog and part of the fee is to cover the spay/neuter of the dog so in a way the humane society is making a profit and they are non-profit.
