02 Nov Pitbulls by the Numbers
Pit Bull and Pit Bull mixes length of stay at Beaufort County Animal Services exceeds 30 days versus other breeds that is typically less than 5 days! While the intake isn’t decreasing, it is also not increasing. The good news is that the spay and neuters of Pit Bulls/Pit Bull mixes has increased by more than 100%!
Since Beaufort County’s Pit Bull spay-neuter law took effect October 15, 2015:
370 Pit Bulls from the public were spayed and neutered for free
321 Pit Bulls have been spayed/neutered at the shelter
691 total Pit Bulls have been spayed/neutered in 2016
Only 4 owners appealed the new ordinance
Less than 2% surrendered due to the law
These are awesome numbers, as 66% of 443 Pit Bulls that we took in from October 13, 2015 – December 1, 2016 were live release!Make A Donation Today
