PLEASE READ THIS AND SHARE IT

This is what is set to start happening at Cumberland County Animal Control in Fayetteville, NC. There is a breed ban set to go into affect Monday the 5th of December all Dobermans, Rottweilers, Chow Chows, German Shepherds, Great Danes, Pitbulls, Mastiffs(all bully breeds), Akitas and Huskies. These dogs will be held for the mandatory 72 hrs and then will be killed, they are not going to be given a chance to be adopted. If the dog is an owner turn in then it will be killed the second it walks into the back. Cumberland county`s reason for this is not wanting to be held liable for these breeds and the possible bite from them to the public after adopted from the shelter. Well I guess they shouldn`t adopt out chihuahuas, doxies or any dog for that matter(no offense to the chi`s or doxies I love them too.) A simple waiver would solve this I`m sure. We need to flood them and let them know that this is not the answer. Contact info on the commissioners is below as is Dr John Lauby(the one that hired the gunman to shoot the fayetteville dogs) and the mayors info is there too.
 
Thank you,

Unbelievable! We will certainly pass this along!

This is what I read:

"The Cumberland County (North Carolina) Animal Control Board met on October 3, 2011 and discussed a proposal to limit the breeds of dogs that would be put up for adoption. The Animal Control Board decided to recommend limiting the adoption of the following breeds:
Rottweilers
American Staffordshire Terriers
Pit bulls
Chows
Presa Canarios
Any mix of the breeds above
The policy has not been implemented at this time, and it has not been brought before the Board of Commissioners for approval. However, the Animal Control Board will meet again December 5, 2011 at 6 p.m. in the conference room at Animal Control to discuss this matter.
Any subsequent recommendation from this advisory board would need to be sent to the Commissioners’ Policy Committee, and then to the Board of Commissioners for approval.
Anyone with suggestions and viable alternatives for the Board’s consideration to alleviate animal control and irresponsible ownership problems would certainly be appreciated."
