Update on Franklin County Puppies

Pets Alive got this reply from the Franklin County Shelter this morning:

We are currently working with Measle... See More’s Animal Haven Pit Bull Rescue of Ohio to have all of the dogs involved in this case rescued (that are of sound temperament). We will not adopt out or send to rescue any dog that we believe is a threat to public safety or the individual or group that wishes to remove the animal from our shelter regardless of the breed. All of the puppies will be sent to rescue. While the news story is accurate in stating that we do not adopt out pit bulls (as they are deemed vicious by state law), they fail to mention that we do work with pit bull rescues that are in compliance with Ohio laws on a regular basis.

Thanks again for your genuine concern for these animals.
