    Thank YOU Clayton CO. for MAKING this Effort!!! I have more respect for your county and ANY Southern State down there!!! I know Denver Co doesn’t take Pit Bulls and a few other area’s there but they may take some of your other dogs… they adopt from several area’s around them… they may try and help you out… also How about Canada the EASTERN PART IT is Worth the try!!!

    Can’t some of these dogs be transferred to shelters or rescues where there are a shortage of dogs??? Certainly someone would be willing to check into this??

    Hope these dogs get adopted or a rescue takes them.There has to be mandatory spay/neutering of our pets and if you breed a dog in your home, you can be brought up on criminal charges. We need to have better control of the animals in our country and euthanizing them must no be the first choice. Plenty of dogs/cats in shelters throughout the United States that there should be an end to backyard profit making breeders.
