A very necessary program! Pit bulls are usually put down when they are surrendered to shelters because of the undeserved stigma they have gotten from disgustingly cruel people (& most shelters can't afford rehab).

Great program that in reality is dealing with the individual that is responsible for the pit bull. In our area the shelter has a free spay and neuter specifically for pit bulls, but if the owner views the spay or neuter as "diminishing" the dog, then even "free" doesn't work.
Vasectomy is a terrific alternative.

Now if we can just alter the owners mentality that neutering a male dog doesn't take away it's "manhood" and that letting a female have that one litter of pups before spaying her will make her a better dog......

it's a great idea to focus on a breed that overwhelms shelters, especially one that can have a hard time finding a home and you often see in poor communities who may otherwise not be able to afford the procedure.

This is Wonderful I love pittbulls and when I'm on my own I do plan on rescuing a pitt bull from the shelter here in longview cause not alot of them get adopted here and when they do they end up with drug dealers and dog fighters who act like good owners when they go there it's always in the paper here.

our shelter recently added a home visit to pit bull adopters for that reason. if you want a pit, it costs a little extra and they have to be certain your intentions are sound.
