spay Neuter Education
Did you know that Pit Bulls make up the largest percentage of dogs in shelters across the United States with a half a MILLION being euthanized every year? Pit Bull type dogs are more likely to be euthanized in shelters than any other dog and only the third most likely to be adopted. The reason this is so you ask? Overpopulation of Pit Bull types has been created by excessive and unregulated breeding. Add to that, Pit Bulls tend to have large litters averaging 10-12 pups per litter. Please join team PBRC and help us help them by educating on the benefits of spaying or neutering Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mixes. And remember, please do not buy a dog but rather adopt a dog from a local shelter or rescue. You can't buy LOVE but you can rescue it!
PBRC's Spay/Neuter Committee was formed in 2003 to address the importance of spaying/neutering our companion animals. The "Speuter" Committee operates solely on the donations of our generous supporters and the hard work of our volunteers. PBRC's goal is to make the public aware of the benefits of spaying and neutering our companion animals - not only for the positive impact this will have on the pet overpopulation problem, but also, as a means of promoting a healthy dog both physically and behaviorally. PBRC believes that awareness is the first step. The focus of PBRC's spay and neuter efforts include:
- Advocating pediatric spay and neuter.
- Helping rescues, shelters and private owners find low cost alter options in their area.
- Accepting and screening applications for financial assistance from owners and rescuers that need help with the costs of spaying and neutering.
