Puppies Killed at Pit Bull Awareness/Adoption Event

Two pit bulls were killed and another three are recovering after someone apparently poisoned the young puppies during an awareness and adoption event in central Pennsylvania this weekend. reported that during an event held by A Darrah Bull Bully Rescue, someone allegedly put poison in the water dish that 5 tiny pit bull puppies were drinking from. The event was intended to raise awareness of the breed, to educate the public about these dogs, and to find homes for the pups that A Darrah Bull Bully rescues.

Renae Metz, one of the founders of A Darrah Bull Bully Rescue, told reporters, “The puppies evidently were an easy target. We aren’t going to turn people down when they offer to put water in their pen, we never imagined that someone would be this malicious.”

Because of the actions of one hateful, malicious person, the pit bull rescue organization will no longer bring puppies to their events.

“We want to press on and save as many dogs as we can,” Metz said. “This just turned us on to the fact that so many people are hateful and we just need to keep spreading the word that these are not bad dogs at all.”

The organization is offering a $1000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the heinous act that left 2 puppies dead and 3 others in need of emergency medical care.

    you people are the reason that animal cruelty cases increase, rather than decrease. Here, we have dead puppies – at the hand of one of ours – and yet, you would rather address what the hell happens to US after death?!

    Would that you all exerted that same energy into productive solutions to animal abuse and cruelty.

    Instead, this sad and disgusting act is met with frivolity and grammar corrections.

    So. Typically. Human.

    God……damn…..etc. Isn’t the subject the murder of puppies? There is no scientific proof that pit bulls are dangerous.When they do bite they do a lot of damage but people are breeding and conditioning for aggression so they can claim big dicks and make $.People are always the problem.Labs bite more than pits each year. Using the rational that some use all humans should be put down.

    How can someone be so cruel? My faith in humanity gets tarnished almost every day.
