Regardless, they're a kill shelter anyway. All dogs should be given an rqual amount of time to be adopted. Besides these people are suppose to be somewhat educated about animals. You'll never hear a dog expert say a bad thing about Pit Bulls. Bad Press or not they should know better.
It's all politics. Employees there have no problem getting them. I know this to be factual information. Yet when I worked for an animal hospital that provided cruelty assesments for the shelter I was not allowed to adopt an abused dog because he was a Pit.
