I found this on the website dated Nov 30, 2011:

"The Cumberland County, NC, Animal Control Board is considering a plan to kill stray ”pit bulls,” Rottweilers, Chows, and Presa Canarios, and mixes of these, rather than find these dogs loving new homes. The bizarre logic behind this move seems to be: “No one responsible adopts these breeds anyway, so why even bother to try?”

This is outrageous and extreme. These animals deserve a chance and this proposal needs to be abolished by the people of Cumberland County, NC.

This proposal is in very early stages, and the public has an opportunity to provide genuinely humane, sensible solutions to the county’s animal control problems. The Animal Control Board will meet again on December 5 at 6:00 PM to discuss the issue, at the Animal Services Department, 4704 Corporation Drive, Fayetteville, NC.

Please be respectful and helpful in your correspondence with officials.

Cumberland County Animal Services Department, Dr. John Lauby, Director, Phone: (910) 321-6851,

If the Animal Control Board approves this proposal, it moves to the Policy Committee, and then to the full Board of Commissioners. We will post that contact information if and when the proposal moves ahead. For the moment, please try to work with the Animal Control Board to find reasonable solutions that don’t involve killing dogs just because they look a certain way."

Help these animals by voicing your opposition of this proposal to the Cumberland County Animal Services Dept and by signing this petition.
