There is a 19 year old girl, April Franklin, Pitbull_gurl_85@yahoo.com
who lives in Council Bluffs, Iowa (336 Benton, Council Bluffs, Iowa 51503). She is contacting shelters and rescue groups, as well as individual Pit owners across the U.S. trying to get free Pit Bulls to sell. She contacted me a week ago asking if she could "rescue" two of my rescued dogs because she is starting a rescue in Iowa. Something didn't fit right, so I declined her request, and did some research. She had submitted an application with PBRC, which was rejected by the adoptive family, and this info does NOT match the info she provided me with when trying to get two dogs from me.
An internet search discovered that this "rescuer" is selling Pit Bulls, most likely dogs she has gotten for free, since she's claiming to be a "rescue" and making $700.00 each for them (the posts directly from her, as well as the link to the source of the posts, are posted at the bottom of this DNA e-mail, please read them to understand the DNA). PLEASE spread the word on this girl, as she does NOT need to be making money off of innocent animals. She's only hurting the breed: the dogs she releases are NOT spayed or neutered, and are only contributing to the breed's overpopulation as it is.
PLEASE help shut her down, and PLEASE spread the word to every Pit person and animal shelter/rescue that you know.
She is NOT just trying to get dogs from Iowa, she's contacted rescues in SEVERAL different states (me being one, in Atlanta, GA).
For a copy of the application she submitted with PBRC, please contact me directly and I can FWD you a copy.
