Welcome. Can you tell us about yourself? Why do you support spay/neuter for all pit bulls?

So you would rather the breed become extinct? There is nothing wrong with responsible and ethical breeding. We need that, just like all breeds. Why don't you preach spay/neuter for pets and dogs that aren't breeding quality, as well as preach responsible and ethical breeding practices? You will not find anyone here that supports your current mindset, as we do not want to see the breed become extinct.

Anyways, welcome and I hope you stick around to read the forum. This is a great source of knowledge as well as being a huge rescue oriented forum.

Again, I think you should do some research. The Euth rates have actually decreased due to more pets being spay/neuter over the last decade. As for breeding, I know over the last 3 years I've shown numerous people what their breeding is doing and they have stopped and fixed their pets. If ALL of the pit bull breeds get fixed and no one breeds, the pit bull breeds will become extinct. Is that your goal? I believe education is the key, and its proven to work. Maybe it is slowly working, but its working.

Listen, I work in rescue, and volunteer with shelters. I know there is a problem, but I've also seen it get better. I don't believe in spay/neuter requirements for entire breeds because that will over time equal extinction. I believe in education, and am thankful to the responsible and ethical breeders that do exist. If spay/neuter laws are enacted for entire dog breeds, those breeds go away. I do not want my breed of choice to fade away and never exist. I see your passion, but you really need to look at things long term and how it effects things. I believe education is the key to most problems in the world.

As I read this, I'm wondering if you're a PETA supporter.

The shelter where I'm from (Tampa) just released that in the last 10 yrs they have went from 30,000/yr Euth rate to 15,000/yr. This is due to educating the general public on spay/neuter programs and shutting down backyard breeders. Education seems to be working pretty good to me.
