St John's County has been practicing breed discrimination by not allowing dogs labeled as pit bulls to be adopted from the count shelter. They also do not allow volunteers to interact with dogs labeled as pit bulls. This is a clear violation!!!!!!!!!

Noted and signed. Given that even 70% of the Mike Vick fighting dogs were able to successfully be re-homed breed specific legislation is simply repugnant, wrong and stupid!

I whish that the People would realize, that a Pitbull has the same right to get a happy home like other dogs. It's only about the owner, not about the breed!!!

The so-called 'people' running this shelter are NO better then that low-life piece of human trash, Michael Vick. All they think about is kill, kill, kill. There's no such thing as bad dog, only vile, crappy owners, euthanize them instead and rid the world of them.

This is flat out bullsh*t, i hope these people that started this war against pit bulls are happy! Destroying numerous dogs & declaring war, many Pitts who have never had a single incident of aggression.They have 2 destroy every pit bull, because of their own issues with them. Well done, punishing all Pitts & everybody!! Hurting chances of Pitts finding a good home & adoption, twits all of them!! S/N Thanks Susanne
