According to the Mid-American Bully Breed Rescue, there are approximately 5,000,000 registered pit bulls in the United States alone (Pit). Of that 5,000,000 there are roughly 35,000 in shelters.

In this way, no-kill shelters keep the animals happy and feeling cared for, which is important to an animal’s health. According to Ed Boks of Maricopa County, Arizona, in a nation where 43,400 animals are euthanized every year in Arizona alone, a pet’s life seems worthless, but no-kill shelters do not adopt that mentality. No-kill shelters nurture their animals in a world where no one else seems committed.
