While looking around the intra-web for interesting people, good ideas, and otherwise thoughtful blogs or websites, I often come up with stuff that I feel should be shared.

I found one of those posts at the Dog Politics blog. It's an older post that dates back to 2007, but I feel that it is still relevant.

In the main, the post deals with the HSUS, a group that has been pretty rough on Pit bulls for decades, and Mandatory Spay and Neuter (MSN) for Pit bulls.

Now, at first glance, MSN for pit bulls may seem like a good idea as the shelter numbers suggest that there are just waaaay tooo maaaaany Pit bulls looking for homes - many of which are ultimately euthanized for lack of adoption. Now, supporting MSN is a touchy topic to begin with but any group pushing MSN for certain breeds of dogs is, well, one more form of Breed Specific Legislation.

I invite you to read this post from DogPolitics.com, which takes a look into Breed Specific MSN and the HSUS' agenda.


The HSUS attempted to fund raise for the care of Micheal Vick's dogs, while at the same time suggesting that the dogs needed to be killed.
And to add insult to injury, they weren't even planning on taking possesion of the dogs.

Contact the HSUS and tell them this is unacceptable!

100% of the profits are used to support RAAP programs
RAAP is an all volunteer group of Pit bull advocates. We offer socialization classes for those that have adopted Pit bull puppies out of the local shelter systems.

We participate in education events, and can assist those looking through the shelter system to find their next dog.

We are always on the look out for new donors and volunteers...please contact us for more information.
