Breed Specific Legislation…

It costs roughly one MILLION tax dollars a year for Denver, CO and PG County, MD to keep its pit bull ban in effect. But hey, they’re just dogs right? Actually, they’re not even dogs, they are vicious pit bulls, so in the long run its for the best because there’s no need to teach people about responsibility & education…. We won’t hold the owners accountable for their bad decisions, we’ll just kill their dogs instead.

Are pit bulls inherently dog aggressive?

OK – So as a pit bull rescue we get this question all of the time, and unfortunately even pit bull advocates don’t all share the same opinion; however, considering we’ve been doing this for quite a few years now, RDR has come to the conclusion, like that of Animal Farm Foundation, which is “all dogs are individuals, and must be treated as such. We work specifically on behalf of dogs labeled as “pit bulls” not because they are different from any other dogs, but because they are not.” (http://www.animalfarmfoundation.org/) But then you go on other pit bull websites and…

Vote for Police!

Hello! I hope this message finds you well. I was just informed that Councilman Charles Samuels has created an online poll focused on the topic of Richmond Animal Care and Control and its ultimate placement within the City structure. It is live on his homepage: http://www.charlesrsamuels.com/.

Many thanks for your support of our animal care division and of our City’s homeless animals and residents, Tamsen Tamsen Heckel Kingry Chief Operating Officer Richmond…
