BACKGROUNDBreed ban: please protest 72-hr.-kill proposal in Cumberland County Animal Control in Fayetteville, NC.

There is a breed ban on ADOPTION of said dogs, and it is set to be discussed on Monday the 5th of December for all Pit bulls, American Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, Chow Chows, and Presa Canerios.

Cumberland County’s reason for this is they do not want to be held liable for these breeds and the possible problems with them after adoption from the shelter.  A simple waiver should solve this.

We need to let them know that this is not the answer.

These dogs will be held for the mandatory 72 hrs and then will be killed, THEY WILL NOT BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO BE ADOPTED.

If the dog is an owner turn-in,  he will be killed the second he walks into the back.

Again, this is set to be DISCUSSED on December 5 and will not go into effect unless passed by all committees.
