AR: Save innocent dogs in Hot Springs

Urge city officials to allow all breeds to be adopted.

All dogs are individuals. Yet, at this moment, pet dogs are languishing in your local animal shelter because of an outdated policy that prevents "pit bulls" from being adopted into willing and loving homes.

TAKE ACTION: If you’re a Hot Springs resident, ask the Board of Directors to change this arbitrary and inhumane policy now.

Urge city officials to allow all breeds to be adopted.

All dogs are individuals. Yet, at this moment, pet dogs are languishing in your local animal shelter because of an outdated policy that arbitrarily prevents some from being adopted into willing and loving homes.

A city ordinance blocks the adoption of well-behaved dogs deemed to be “pit bulls” by the Animal Control Authority. As a result, countless pets are being held for prolonged periods of time, depleting the already-limited resources that the city allocates for animal control.

What’s more, Hot Springs residents wishing to adopt pit-bull-terrier-like dogs must go to other shelters rather than supporting the one funded by their tax dollars.

The pets and people of Hot Springs deserve better.

TAKE ACTION: If you’re a Hot Springs resident, ask the Board of Directors to change this outdated and inhumane policy now.

Please stop preventing responsible adoptions

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a Hot Spring resident and your constituent, I urge you to repeal the policy that prevents countless well-behaved dogs from being adopted at our animal shelter.



Please reverse the breed-based adoption ban today. Every loving pet deserves a chance at a loving home, and we deserve policies backed by research not rumors.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
