Animal Shelter Puts Down Pitbull While In Labor And People Are Outraged


For the past few years, owning a pitbull has been subjected to a significant deal of scrutiny. They’ve been deemed as dangerous creatures, which many cities across North America debating on whether its residents can keep them as pets.

However, this debate has caused a tremendous amount of contention between lawmakers and pitbull owners, animal activists, and the like.

While i’ts recently been airlines that have been causing an uproar with passengers’ dogs dying on flights, one huge tragedy has occurred in an animal shelter, much to the public’s horror.

On May 10, the Amarillo Animal Management and Welfare (AAMW) facility in Texas made the decision to euthanize a shelter pitbull (identified as G7) while she was in labor. To make matters even worse, the organization decided to put down her pups soon after.

This outrageous event was shared by Anderson, an Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society (APHS) volunteer who was “appalled” by the decision.

“I need to write about something that I recently witnessed and found completely appalling and unacceptable. I have found immense joy through my volunteering, and I have struggled with the potential pushback from speaking out,” Anderson wrote on Facebook.

“I have also sought to remedy wrongs through the proper channels. I have held on to this post, hoping that I would not have to share, but I cannot seem to get anywhere. Today, I am coming to the public for support,” she continued.

She also made it clear that it was the AAMW’s decision to put down G7 and not the organization she volunteers for.
