Free spay and neutering procedures for pit bulls and pit mixes are being offered The Sacramento Animal Shelter after they have received a grant to provide it. Two zip codes in the city will be able to have these free procedures done. Gina Knepp, the shelter manager, says that 40% of the 5,000 dogs in the shelter are either pit bulls or pit mixes. The $5,000 grant that was given to the Sacramento Animal Shelter was from the Chako Pit Bull Rescue will allow the shelter to help most of the stay pit bulls in the 95816 and 95818 area codes.

The dogs that are not adopted will be euthanized, however, the adoption rates for the dogs are 60% but Knepp says there are still too many. Knepp says “If i treat say 200 hundred animals, 100 pairs, with 3 to 8 puppies a pair. That’s a lot of animals.” For the owners who choose to take the free spay and neuter offer, the city will throw in micro chipping, vaccinations, I.D tags and collars and city license. The city would save money if they didn’t deal with pit bulls and pit mixes and other animals. You don’t need to be an owner of a pit bull to get these discounts, the shelter also does have a yearly round spay and neuter program based on income for any breed.

The month of October is “National Pit bull Awareness Day” and because of that, the League for Animal Protection and the town of Huntington are co-sponsoring a free spay and neuter program for pit bulls and pit mixes. There are veterinarians that have agreed to participate in the program so during October, the owners are able to bring their pits in and have them fixed. There are so many pit bulls in shelters that desperately need a home and by spaying and neutering them, we are able to control the population of pit bulls so we don’t see more in the shelter.

Chris Browns pit bull, Breezy, had 8 puppies at the end of February and is selling them for $1000 a puppy. Brown has a site dedicated to the puppies and getting them good homes. This isn’t a new career move, his dog was not neutered (like most celebrities and their dogs)

Brown should look at spaying and neutering his dogs so he can avoid this happening again. There are thousands of unwanted pits in shelters across the world and if he wants them to get good homes then he shouldn’t be selling them on the internet. He obviously doesn’t care about the care of the dogs or getting them new homes, he just wants to make money off them. There are thousands of thousands of dogs being euthanized every day, and that’s where his puppies could end up. If Chris really understood the breed he would use his own money and put it towards shelters and to bring awareness to the discriminatory legislation against them. Chris is no advocate for the breed, doesn’t understand them and is simply just a user of their image.
