SAVE THIS PUPPY!! HE IS GOING TO BE EUTHANIZED ON SUNDAY (7/17) JUST BECAUSE HE’S A PITBULL. He has never done anything violent, this is breed discrimination. I know many of us love all animals, please, call Polk County Animal Control: (863) 499-2600 and tell them to do the right thing!
A friend found a young pit bull wandering the streets of her town in Florida a few weeks ago. She attempted to find the owner with no response. Posted an ad seeking a new home for him. Before a response came, she was forced to bring him to Polk County Animal Control. Initially informed they would do everything they could to find him a home, they took him, and then told her they would not rehome him because he is a pit.
They won’t even release him back to the woman who found him. One day after Polk county took him, a man answered her ad stating he would love to add this little guy to his family, but Animal Control won’t release the dog!
I know many of us love all animals, please, call Polk County Animal Control: (863) 499-2600 and tell them to do the right thing!! We have hope a local rescue(the animal control office is in Winter Haven, FL) will help get this pup released so my friend can take him to his new home!! He’s scheduled to be euthanized THIS Sunday!
He doesn’t deserve this fate due to breed stigma!
Animal control is being unresponsive, KEEP CALLING.
PLEASE REBLOG THIS AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, CALL THE NUMBER ABOVE. WE ONLY HAVE ONE DAY TO SAVE THIS PUPPY’S LIFE.
Added 7/17: WE SAVED HIM!!!! But now he needs a home, so if you know someone in Florida that wants a cutie, let me know!
