The pit bulls sprawled around the Riverside County Animal Control office this week were an unusually tranquil lot -- more fluffy the cat than hound from hell.

300 signed up. that's impressive considering riverside is the hub of backyard breeding , and folks have a different mentality out there. owned dogs that run wild is a common sight. maybe they could allow good samaritans to bring in these 'owned' dogs, since most owners just aren't going to do it.

Great! Part of the problem solved. 300 people have signed up. But how may more aren't signing up? And what can be done about that? Are they also offering free dog obedience classes and animal care classes to people? Are they searching back yards for improper breeders? I hope the free sp/neutering helps the plight of these sweet dogs.

Great idea Riverside. I am so glad it looks promising. Maybe this will become a solution in a lot of other cities. Thanks for sharing Cher!
