Let Your Vote Go To The Dogs

Frequently there's legislation related to animals up for a vote. Sadly, here in Central Arkansas the "pit bull" breed, along with "pit mixes" are outright banned in many cities and killed in large numbers simply because of the way they look. It doesn't matter how great their temperament, it doesn't matter if they love people, dogs, and cats..... but because they look a certain way, they are deemed "less than" and are killed in staggering numbers. 

Here at Rock City Rescue, we have quite a few pit bulls and other breeds that have been deemed "dangerous" in the past. We love the underdogs. They have a special place in our heart because we know how insanely amazing they truly are and we pity anyone who looks at our Pit Bulls or Chows and reacts in fear, or even worse, disgust. 

Aurora, Colorado voters will soon decide whether to keep or repeal the city's 2006 pit bull ban, and it could be the most controversial issue on the ballot in that city. We're asking that If you live in Aurora, CO make sure you are voting YES to 2D on Nov 4th!!
Aurora's vote, the first in the nation on a general-election ballot, could presage other public votes on so-called "breed-specific legislation," laws that either ban some types of dogs or require they be sterilized.  This can be a passionate issue on both sides, but please don't engage in Internet debates, especially with haters. It's counterproductive and plays into the drama they are trying to create. If you want to be heard, then vote and get others to join you. For people that can't vote, responsible pit bull owners like us can show our support by posting pictures of us with our good dogs on our profiles followed by ‪#‎coloradogs‬ and ‪#‎mollywouldbanmetoo.
Let's light up FB with a bunch of great people and great dogs!

Aurora, the eyes of the nation are upon you. What you choose to do on November 4th can dramatically chance the landscape of legislation regarding pit bulls, so please, make the right choice.
