It means the world to the pups.
This is the ONLY WAY they may stay alive and there is 127 of them, poor babies.
Here is an example of the letter that can be sent to them (just fyi):
"Dear Mr. Triplett:
It is time to end the stereotype, hyped-up perception that all pit breeds are dangerous.
I urge you to let Best Friends help you in this situation with the seized dogs and let their experts/rescues asses/handle them.
It has clearly shown that all but one Vicktory dogs have been successfully rehabilitated and will be rehomed.

A very few cases of cruel abuse by irresponsible owners/druglords/status seekers have ruined the image of these beloved breeds.
The Pitbull is one of America's most popular family pets, because of it's loyalty, it's smart character (many become search/rescue/sniff or therapy dogs) and it's sense of humor.
Just today a clip on Oprah about Oogy the dog... showed the world once again, how one of these magnificent canines (he was a bait dog) has overcome the worst and has become an integral part of a family - like many others, with the help of experts and loving handlers/trainers.
We must stop the demonizing of these breeds - fed by hyped media and rooted fear of the unknown... instead we must educate and pursue those who so contribute to the sad fate that condemns these dogs : the irresponsible owners and cruel, ignorant people like Vick and the likes - no dog is born mean and it is discrimination at best to kill dogs for their physical characteristics."
Please move forth and set an example of compassion and recognition - with the help of experts such as Best Friends - these dogs can be rescued - they deserve that chance.
Thank you for your time.
Please Please Please. They need us right now.
