[color][font]stop breeding our staffies to death
people need to understand this is a real problem
the breeding of the staffordshire bull terrier needs to stop. Far to many are put to sleep each day because of this problem.Thousands euthanised every year.
Will you help to
Save The Staffies?
As you may have noticed in recent years the Staffordshire Bull Terrier has become an incredibly popular breed all over the UK for all different types of dog owners. But did you know that this great popularity has also brought great suffering?
Staffordshire Bull Terriers and SBT crosses are being over-bred meaning that every year thousands of them are left without homes, ending up in Council Pounds or Rescue centres and some suffering an even worse fate - being 'put to sleep' simply because they have nowhere to go.
"EIGHTEEN STRAY DOGS PUT TO SLEEP EVERY DAY"
According to statistics from DogsTrust.org.uk
In the UK, local authorities are recorded to pick up approximately 100,000 stray dogs every year. Luckily many of these are either re-united with their owners or are put in to Rescue care where they will be health checked and looked after until a new forever home can be found.
But Rescue spaces are hard to find for Staffies these days, as most are either already full of Staffies or are having to limit the amount they can care for at one time.
Around 7,000 dogs are euthanised every year in the UK (and over 10,000 in Ireland) after their 7 days in the pound is completed. Sadly, they are discarded like a waste product of our society.
It has become obvious to many people involved in dog rescue
that the majority of these 'death row dogs' are staffies.
But it's not the fault of the Local Council's or the Pound staff - the people who have to care for the dogs and call the vets in to give the dogs their final injections. It's the fault of the people in our society who allow their dogs to breed with no proper thought or care given to where those puppies might end up, and the people who take on a dog without thinking seriously about whether or not it is right for their lifestyle.
